RF-/STEEL SANS | Features

Product Feature

  • Design of members and sets of members for tension, compression, bending, shear, torsion, and combined internal forces
  • Stability analyzes for buckling, torsional and torsional-torsional buckling
  • Automatic determination of critical buckling loads and critical buckling moments for general load applications and support conditions by means of a special FEA program (eigenvalue analysis) integrated in the module
  • Alternative analytical calculation of critical buckling moments for standard situations
  • Optional application of discrete lateral supports to beams and continuous members
  • Automatic cross-section classification
  • Serviceability limit state design (deflection)
  • Cross-section optimization
  • Wide range of cross-sections available, for example rolled I-sections, C-sections, T-sections, angles, rectangular and circular hollow sections, round bars, symmetrical, asymmetrical and parameterized I- and T-sections as well as angles and double angles
  • Clearly arranged input and result windows
  • Detailed result documentation including references to design equations of the used standard
  • Various filter and sorting options of results including result lists by member, cross-section, x-location, or by load cases, load and result combinations
  • Result table of member slenderness and governing internal forces
  • Parts list with weight and solid specifications
  • Seamless integration in RFEM/RSTAB
