Design of Orthotropic Timber Surfaces and Cross-Laminated Timber (CLT)
In the Timber Design add-on for RFEM, you can design members as well as surfaces according to Eurocode 5, SIA 265 (Swiss standard), CSA O86 (Canadian standard), or ANSI/AWC NDS (American standard), for example, cross-laminated timber, glued-laminated timber, softwood, mass timber, and so on.

Stability Design of Tapered Timber Girder in RFEM 6 According to the Equivalent Member Method
The new RFEM software generation provides the option to perform stability design of tapered timber members in line with the equivalent member method. According to this method, the design can be performed if the guidelines of DIN 1052, Section E8.4.2 for variable cross-sections are met. In various technical literature, this method is also adopted for Eurocode 5. This article demonstrates how to use the equivalent member method for a tapered roof girder.
The Timber Design add-on designs timber members for the ultimate, serviceability, and fire resistance limit states according to various standards.
