Markus Baumgärtel Results RF-CONCRETE RFEM

When evaluating the results, it is noticeable that z. B. due to the temperature load cases very high normal forces arise in some FE-points arise. How can I model the surfaces better, so that no unrealistic effects arise?


If the stresses occur very concentrated at an FE point, it may be a singularity. Often it is sufficient in this case, if one at the vertices or Singularitätsstellen Inserts smoothing areas (see Figure 1). The voltages should then be significantly smaller in these areas. There are also several articles on our homepage dealing with singularities and smoothing areas .
