RFEM 6 | Stress-Strain Analysis

The Stress-Strain Analysis add-on performs a general stress analysis by calculating the existing stresses and comparing them with the limit stresses. Strains for surfaces and solids can also be determined.

During the stress analysis, the maximum stresses of solids, surfaces, and line welds (RFEM only), as well as members are determined. The governing internal forces are also documented for each member and each surface. Furthermore, there is the option of an automatic section or thickness optimization including the update of the sections or surface thicknesses modified in RFEM/RSTAB.

This manual describes the Stress-Strain Analysis add-on for the programs RFEM 6 and RSTAB 9.
