Wind Simulation & Wind Load Generation
With the stand-alone program RWIND Simulation, wind flows around simple or complex structures can be simulated by means of a digital wind tunnel.
The generated wind loads acting on these objects can be imported to RFEM or RSTAB.
Different methods are available for calculating the deformation in the cracked state. RFEM provides an analytical method according to DIN EN 1992-1-1 7.4.3 and a physical-nonlinear analysis. Both methods have different features and can be more or less suitable depending on the circumstances. This article will give an overview of the two calculation methods.
In addition to determine loads, there are some particularities concerning the load combinatorics in timber design which have to be considered. Contrary to steel structures where the largest loading results from all unfavorable actions, in timber construction, the strength values are dependent on the load duration and the timber humidity. Special characteristics have to be considered as well for the serviceability limit state design. The following article discusses the effects on the design of wooden elements and how this is possible with RSTAB and RFEM.
When designing reinforced concrete components according to EN 1992-1-1,  nonlinear methods of determining internal forces are possible for the ultimate and serviceability limit states. The internal forces and deformations are determined while taking the nonlinear behavior of internal forces and deformations into account. The calculation of stresses and strains in the cracked state generally results in deflections that are considerably higher than the linearly determined values.
Shrinkage and creep are time-dependent deformation properties of concrete. They usually have to be considered in the serviceability limit state design.
