AnswerYes, you can define an area in the panel by clicking the button "options". Here you can define a customized area by moving the slider. In that case the areas with higher or lower stresses have no color.
AnswerThe user-defined limit parameters are stored in the file "Limits_User.db3" (see Figure 1).
AnswerYes the possibility exists. In many standards we have implemented this possibility. Here you can select the option "Other" as subsoil class and thus adapt some parameters according to your wishes.The following annexes to EN 1998-1 have this option: CEN, NBN, CSN, DIN, UNI, NP, STN, CYS, BS, NS and NF.
AnswerYes, this is possible, but this material must be created in the corresponding filter via the material library, so that all relevant information for the module is available. In addition, the standard group or standard must be selected so that it fits the design standard in the module.It is best to go to the material library and select the material category and group as well as the corresponding standard there. Create a new material after selection (see figure 1)Afterwards, a corresponding dialog opens by selecting a material name and the corresponding parameters (see Figure 2). The material should then be usable in the design.
AnswerNo, this possibility does not exist. Node deformations are always output in relation to the global coordinate system, regardless of whether the structure input was done using a user-defined coordinate system.Optionally, the output of local bar or area deformation results may help as needed.
AnswerIf you want to use a custom material in the design modules, you must make sure that it has the same properties as a standard-specific material.Example: You want to dimension a custom material in RF / concrete according to EN 1992-1-1. To create the material proceed as follows: In the material library, select a material of the EN 1992-1-1 series and select "Create new material ...". Here you can change all given values. All these values are required for a design in the add-on module.
AnswerYou have to create a custom cross section (see picture). Afterwards the stress points with all necessary values have to be indicated. After successful entry, stresses in the additional module STAHL be calculated.
The changes should always be kept if you create a user-defined toolbar. To do this, use the [New Toolbar] button available in the "Toolbars" tab of the "Customize" dialog box (see screenshot). A user-defined toolbar is also retained after the automatic arrangement.
Please also check if you have sufficient user rights. Otherwise, it may happen that the individual view settings are reset after a restart.
AnswerYes, this is done by creating a user-defined cross-section in the cross-section library.
