Deactivation of Individual Dowels in RF-/JOINTS Timber - Steel to Timber
Tips & Tricks
In RF‑/JOINTS Timber, it is possible to remove an individual dowel from the calculation, and thus create any dowel layout. The calculation disregards these removed dowels for the ultimate limit state design as well as for the net timber cross‑sections analysis and the rotational spring stiffness determination.
You can find this setting in Window "1.5 Geometry" under "Details - List of Dowels". You can also individually define the dowel diameter here.
