This article shows you how to define different types of member transverse stiffeners in RFEM 6 and RSTAB 9. It also shows you how to consider them in the design as well as the calculation of members with 7 degrees of freedom.
When connecting tension-loaded components with bolted connections, it is absolutely necessary to consider the cross-section reduction due to the bolt holes in the ultimate limit state design. The Aluminum Design add-on facilitates this procedure by entering a member local section reduction.
- My beam has a continuous lateral support and therefore lateral torsional buckling (LTB) is not a concern. How do I define the effective length?
- How do I consider the strength of weld-affected zone for aluminum?
- How can I carry out case-related design for different load situations?
- The limit stress is activated, but my stress ratio is “non-designable” in the Stress-Strain Analysis add-on. What could be the reason?
- How do I define a member as a cantilever and not as supported at both ends for serviceability or deflection design?
- How do I create a user-defined Design Situation with my own chosen load combinations?
- Where can I find the materials for the corresponding National Annexes in RFEM 6 and RSTAB 9?
- How do I apply load on members that are non coplanar in RFEM 6?
- How do I apply wind load on members of open structures?
- I encountered a sharing violation while importing a dxf file into SHAPE‑THIN. What is the issue?
