Wieland Götzler Add-on Modules RFEM RF-STEEL RF-STABILITY RF-IMP

I have to dimension a holder of a wall (steel consoles). I have modeled this as surface components in the RFEM. The question: With which module can these steel brackets be calculated?


For the design of steel surfaces please use the module of the same name RF-STEEL Surfaces. If you also want to consider local denting, then the additional modules RF-STABIL (to determine the bulge and branching loads) and RF-IMP (to determine the imperfection figure, based on the bulge pattern) are also recommended.
