Modeling Downstand Beams in Cross-Laminated Constructions
Tips & Tricks
In cross‑laminated models with large spans, downstand beams or hybrid constructions are often used. They can be modeled in RFEM 5 by means of surfaces and member cross‑sections. In both systems, curved downstand beams are also easily possible. In the case of the curved surface, the member is always appropriately generated by means of the automatic member eccentricity with the thickness distance of the surface and the member.
