RX-TIMBER Roof | Input
There are various options available for modeling a roof. Graphical representations facilitate the geometry input. Modifications are updated automatically.
In addition, it is possible to consider cross‑section weakening on supports. Optionally, you can define if the design of support pressure on the rafter side should be performed.
Permanent loads (for example roof structure) can be entered using the comprehensive and extendable material library. Loads due to cantilevers and collars/ties can be entered separately. The integrated generators allow for comfortable generation of various wind and snow load cases. You can manually add any concentrated and distributed loads.
For checking purposes, the load cases are displayed graphically and included in automatically generated combinations according to EC 5. Thus, the input is reduced to a minimum. For stability analysis and serviceability limit state design, you can change the data manually, for example to ignore the SLS of cantilevers (roof overhang).
