AnswerIt can often be the case that the selection of outdated materials can have an effect on the deformation of the wearer. It should be noted that the material characteristics should always be taken from the respective standard. For the material characteristics of the same material may differ depending on the standard and its National Annex.For example, the same concrete was selected in this example, but the concrete has C35 / 45 | DIN 1045-1 compared with the concrete C35 / 45 | DIN EN 1992-1-1 on a lower modulus of elasticity (see Figure 1). As a result, there is also a greater deflection in the middle of the reinforced concrete beam, which is only loaded by its own weight (see Figure 2).
This problem occurs if the imported cross-section description does not exist in RFEM / RSTAB. For such cases, it is possible to create a kind of 'translation table' in the form of a conversion file. You can open it in the "Details" tab of the "Import" dialog box (see Figure).
During an import, the program then converts all entered cross-sections so that they are recognized by RFEM / RSTAB.
Equally, a conversion table is available for materials.
You can right-click on the "Cross sections" entry in the Data Navigator. In the context menu that appears, you will find the command "Delete unassigned cross sections" with which the cross sections that are currently not used in the model (blue font) can be deleted with one click.
This procedure also works analogously for the materials, rod end joints, etc.
