The joint type ‘Main member only’ in RF‑/JOINTS Timber - Steel to Timber can also be applied for more than one connected member. This is particularly useful in the case of very complex connection geometry of connected members. For this type, the number of connected members is unlimited.
- Check of minimum spacing
- Load carrying capacity of single fastener
- Steel plates (bearing resistance and stress according to EC 3 and AISC)
- Stress analysis with reduced timber cross‑section
- Block shear failure
- Total load carrying capacity (including stiffness determination, transversal tension design according to EC 5, and others)
- Fire resistance design according to EN 1995‑1‑2
- How many members can be connected to a node in RF-/JOINTS Timber - Steel to Timber and what is the minimum angle between the members?
- There is a note in the RF-/JOINTS Timber - Steel to Timber add-on module saying that the member length is too short. What is the minimum length and how to avoid the problem?
- How can I get the member end forces to design the connections?
- I design timber components. The deformations of load combinations deviate from the manual calculation exactly by the factor of the material partial safety factor. Why?
- How can I run the RX‑TIMBER Frame plugin? I did not find it in the Add-on Modules menu nor in Project Navigator - Data.
- I have a question about the results of the serviceability limit state design: How is the increment of the dead load by the factor 1.8 and the imposed load by 1.48 explained in the result combinations for the SLS design?
- Where can I adjust the effective length lef according to Table 6.1 of Eurocode 5 in the TIMBER Pro add-on module?
- Is it possible to display more values for the stress distribution over the layers in RF‑LAMINATE?
- I would expect the results from my load combination (CO) set to a linear analysis to equal the summation of the results from my load cases (LC) also set to a linear analysis. Why do the results not match?
- How can I design dowel-laminated timber (DLT) or nail-laminated timber (NLT) in RFEM?
