Can I also design individual hollow sections with the RF-HSS add-on module?

Answer

The standard 1993-1-8 specifies, which kind of cross-sections can be considered. The designs are interpreted in such a way that only one wall thickness is possible per cross-section. If an invalid cross-section is detected, a corresponding message is displayed (see Figure 1). Therefore, the question about the extension for such cross-sections should be answered in the negative. The standard is largely based on tests/research. Therefore, the focus is on hot-formed hollow sections according to EN 10210 and cold-formed hollow sections according to EN 10219.
