Markus Baumgärtel Add-on Modules RF-PUNCH Pro

How does RF-STANZ Pro calculate the Ved values for the punching load?


The add-on module RF-STANZ Pro determines the punching load not by adding up the bearing loads, but directly from the shear forces of the plate in the critical round cut.
The comparison may therefore give different results, as these may be influenced by the FE mesh and possibly also by singularities of the FE calculation. A description of the procedure used in RF-STANZ Pro can be found in a technical article on our homepage:
