AnswerYes, you can define the required glass pane structure in tab 1.2 Layers. To be able to define insulated glass, you have to assign at least one glass layer to the structure. Then, you receive the additional option for the gas layer.After defining the gas layer, you receive additional tabs where you can enter more specific data for the design.
The problem was caused by an incorrect update of the signature database of BitDefender. Update the signature database of BitDefender to correct the problem.
AnswerJust checking the box doesn't do the trick. This changes the standard settings for new files but doesn't change the current file. For changing the units you also have to click the line so it gets highlighted. That changes the units in the current file.
AnswerThe structures of Lignotrend can best be defined for bars under the composite cross sections.Further information can be found in this article .
AnswerIf you want to define failure criterion s for orthotropic material you have to define a orthotropic plastic material in the Material Model (picture 1).The yield criterion will be done according the Tsai-Wu criterion (picture 2).By this Link you can find a full set of verification examples to this material model.The material model itself is explained in several Knowledge base articles.
AnswerFE-BEUL offers in the details the choice between a rigid and deformable support stiffness for determining the reduction factor for shear bumps (see Figure 1).
AnswerFor example, the standard EN 1990 + EN1991-2; Use road bridges (see picture 1). Alternatively, one could of course also determine the combinations by hand. Further information can be found in our manual.
AnswerRF-TENDON is an external add-on module. While RF-TENDON is running RFEM is locked via COM connection. RF-TENDON is not integrated in RFEM and it runs as a separate application. RF-TENDON should appear in the taskbar after it was started (picture 1)
AnswerWhen creating a load combination, the calculation type "II. Order "default. For linear systems, however, which are statically indeterminate, the results for load cases, which are calculated by theory according to the first order, can therefore differ.
AnswerThat's fine. Call up the program options under Options and check the box "Save after calculation". This way the model will be saved automatically after each cycle.This option is particularly useful for larger structures that take a long time to calculate.
