  1. Structure and Wind Load Due to Friction

    Wind Force Due to Friction

    The wind, which blows parallel to the surfaces of a structure, can generate friction forces on these surfaces. This effect is mainly important for very large structures.

  2. Graded Wind Load Over Different Building Heights

    Wind Depending on the Structure Height for Vertical Walls

    The wind loads are regulated according to Eurocode 1 - Actions on structures - part 1-4: General actions - Wind loads. The nationally determined parameters of a respective country can be found in the National Annexes.

  3. Figure 01 - Generate 3D Cell

    Modeling Containers by Generating a 3D Cell

    With the function "Generate Model - Members" → "3D Cell", it is very easy to generate containers (shipping containers, office containers, mobile homes, etc.) with regular and irregular distribution of the cells.
  4. Generating wind loads

    Consideration of the correlation with wind loads

    If the wind load for buildings or structures is to be determined by the simultaneous assumption of aerodynamic pressure and suction coefficients on the windward and leeward sides of the building, the correlation of the wind pressure on zones D and E of the wall surfaces may be taken into account.
  5. Figure 01 - Frame Dimensions

    Determining Force Coefficient of Resulting Member Loads for Plane Lattice Structures from Wind Load

    This article presents a simple example of a lattice structure to explain how to determine wind loading as a function of the lattice solidity.

  6. Figure 01 - Model 1

    Methods of Supporting Plates by Columns

    In the case of plate structures, it is always necessary to consider the realistic definition support conditions. Depending on the way of defining the flexibility of the supports, clear differences may occur in the results.

  7. Figure 01 - Wind Load

    Loading According to EN 1991-1-4 and Safety Against Overturning of Circular Cylinders

    This article describes the determination of force coefficients by using a wind load and the calculation of a stability factor due to overturning.

  8. Support Conditions for Surface Elastic Foundation

    Soil Model of Foundation Overlap

    previous article presented different variants of surface elastic foundations in addition to the traditional subgrade reaction modulus method. The following article describes another method for surface foundation. This method considers the adjacent ground areas by means of a foundation overlap. In this case, foundation parameters refer to the continuing works by Pasternak and Barwaschow.

  9. Considering Snow Overhang

    Considering Snow Overhang

    The “Generate Snow Loads” function provides the option to consider snow overhang. Thus, the load of the snow overhang is applied automatically to the eaves using distributed load or several nodal loads.

  10. For Wind as Governing Action Abandon Snow

    For Wind as Governing Action Abandon Snow

    According to DIN EN 1990/NA:2010‑12 - NDP to A.1.2.1(1) Comment 2, it is possible to neglect the combination of snow as collateral action in the case of the combination wind/snow with the wind as leading action in wind zones III and IV.
