Why can not I prove a double bend with the module RF- / JOINTS?

Answer

In the current regulations, connection means or connections are always detected in one plane only. The reason for this is that the evidence of shear etc. can only be analyzed in the 2D plane. The verification of the bearing evidence, for example, is not possible for off-plane failure.

Since in a three-dimensional calculation also internal forces in v y and v z can occur, it has been proven in practice to allow a small proportion of internal forces in the secondary direction and not fully exploit the connection. However, if the proportion of the lateral force in the secondary direction becomes too high, a detailed investigation with an FE simulation may be necessary.
