The current state of the development of finite element analysis software and computer technology allows for the calculation of more complex structure. More and more frequently, the FE calculation is performed on the entire model. In this context, certain practical construction problems may appear. One of these problems is the consideration of a construction process in the model.
In my model, I have to consider construction stages with nonlinearities, so I have to work with the load combinations that are already included in the dead load.
I have several load combinations for the first and then also for the second construction stage to be analyzed and evaluated.
The load combinations from the first construction stage do not occur in the second construction stage.
I am not sure how to assign the load combinations in the construction stages (permanent or temporary).
- How can I display the deformation in the current construction stage and in relation to the initial system in RF‑STAGES?
- Why are the results of the load cases,for example, the load case of dead load, not identical with the first construction stage in the RF‑/STAGES add-on module?
- When comparing the partial calculation of a single floor with the total calculation of the building, there are very different local deformations. Why?
- Why are the results in the RF‑/STAGES add-on module not consistent with the corresponding load cases and combinations in the program RFEM or RSTAB?
- What means the option Alignment of new elements in "Initial position" and "Tangential" in RF‑STAGES?
- Which analysis is used in RF‑STAGES or STAGES to calculate temporary loads and the generated combinations?
- Can I calculate or design composite cross-sections with RFEM Beton-Beton?
