  1. Deformations as the First Result of an FEM Calculation

    Internal Forces Diagram/Surface Stresses - Smoothing Options

    The deformations of the FE nodes are always the first result of an FE calculation. Based on these deformations and the stiffness of the elements, it is possible to calculate strains, internal forces, and stresses.

  2. Figure 01 - Research Issue

    Modeling Approaches for Shear/Hole Bearing Connections by Means of FEA

    For more detailed investigations of shear/hole bearing connections or their immediate environment, the definition of the non-linear contact problem plays an important role. This article uses a solid model to search for comparable and simplified surface models.
  3. 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.
  4. Reduction of Loads Generated in RF-MOVE Surfaces Using RF-INFLUENCE

    Reduction of Loads Generated in RF-MOVE Surfaces Using RF-INFLUENCE

    For the reduction of loads generated in RF‑MOVE Surfaces, it is possible to consider influence surfaces of a selected point. The influence surfaces are determined by RF‑INFLUENCE. This procedure is useful in cases where only unfavorable acting loads should be considered. Depending on the unfavorable action, you should select the positive or negative direction.
