Modeling Cross-Laminated Timber Structures 6
Tips & Tricks
Usually, the lifting forces acting on a structure, which are mostly resulting from the wind loads or a dynamic analysis, are transferred into the ground through ties. In one of the previous posts, I already described this connection.
If the modeling was done accordingly, the design can be done quickly and easily in the RF‑LIMITS add‑on module. Just select the tie in the database and design it for each occurring force.
In my next post, I will talk about designing shear connectors.
