Plastic Material Model for Weld Design
Here, the weld design becomes child's play. Using the specially developed material model "Orthotropic | Plastic | Weld (Surfaces)", you can calculate all stress components plastically. The stress τperpendicular is also considered plastically.
Using this material model you can design welds closer to reality and more efficiently.
Evaluating and Documenting Steel Joints Analysis Results in RFEM 6
With the RFEM 6 Steel Joints add-on, you can analyze steel connections by using an FE model. This article demonstrates how to evaluate and document the steel joints analysis results.
The structural analysis program RFEM 6 is the basis of a modular software system. The main program RFEM 6 is used to define structures, materials, and loads of planar and spatial structural systems consisting of plates, walls, shells, and members. The program can also design combined structures as well as solid and contact elements.
