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.

  1. Figure 01 - Hall Frame as Basis for Surface Model

    Modeling Joints as Surface Model

    With RF-/FRAME-JOINT Pro, it is possible to design frame joints according to DIN 18800 or Eurocode 3. When considering non-standardized joints or taking a closer look at the joint and its behavior, it is recommended to use a modeling as surface model. The following article will show how such a model is created in principle.
  2. Calculation Example

    Calculation Example of Rigid End Plate Connection According to EN 1993-1-8

    In this example, design resistance of an end plate according to EN 1993-1-8 [1] is to be determined; the other components are not described here. To check the results, the dimensions of the connection IH 3.1 B 30 24 of Typified Connections [2] were used. The material S 235 and bolts with the strength 10.9 are used.

  3. Figure 01 - Frame Joint in RF-/FRAME-JOINT Pro

    Analysis of Load-Bearing Capacity of Bolted Frame Joints According to EC 3-1-8

    When designing bending-resistant connections from I‑beams, the connection is dissolved into the individual parts. For these basic components of a joint, there are separate formula calculators for load‑bearing capacity and stiffness. In RFEM and RSTAB, it is possible to design frame joints using the RF‑/FRAME‑JOINT Pro add‑on module.

  4. Continuous Beam in RF-/FRAME-JOINT Pro

    Continuous Beam

    Since there are no automated frame joints of the “continuous beam” type included in RF‑/FRAME‑JOINT Pro, you can use another option for designing this type. By using the manual definition and the “Continuous Column” type, the design of such beam combination is possible.

  5. Display Options for 3D Graphics in RF-/FRAME-JOINT Pro and RF-/JOINTS

    Display Options for 3D Graphics

    In addition to the result tables, it is possible to create a three-dimensional graphics in RF‑/FRAME‑JOINT Pro and RF‑/JOINTS. This is a realistic representation of the connection to scale.
