With the RF‑/LIMITS add‑on module, you can compare the load‑bearing capacity of members, member ends, nodes, nodal supports, and surfaces (only in RFEM) by means of a defined ultimate load-bearing capacity. Furthermore, nodal displacements as well as cross-section dimensions can be checked.
Using this model, it was possible to compare the column bases with the maximum allowable forces specified by the manufacturer.

With the LIMITS module, it is possible to compare the ultimate limit state of members, member ends, nodes, nodal supports and surfaces (RFEM only) on the basis of a defined ultimate limit state. Furthermore, nodal displacements as well as cross-section dimensions can be checked. In this example, the column bases of a carport are to be compared with the maximum allowable forces specified by the manufacturer.

I-joists in Timber - Discussion of current design practice and implementation in structural analysis software
The cross-section resistance design analyzes tension and compression along the grain, bending, bending and tension/compression as well as the strength in shear due to shear force.
The design of structural components at risk of buckling or lateral-torsional buckling is performed according to the Equivalent Member Method and considers the systematic axial compression, bending with and without compressive force as well as bending and tension. Deflection of inner spans and cantilevers is compared to the maximal allowable deflection.
Separate design cases allow for a flexible and stability analysis of members, sets of members, and loads.
Design-relevant parameters such as the stability analysis type, member slendernesses, and limit deflections can be freely adjusted.
- I have a model of a timber building, which I have transferred from Scia Engineer and adapted it into the RFEM program. The models should be the same; however, it can only be calculated in Scia Engineer while RFEM reports singularity. How do I edit the model to analyze it in RFEM?
- How can I model a timber-concrete composite floor?
- Where do I find the setting to specify the entered structural component as a "wall" or "slab"?
- The information about the limit time for the fire resistance design R in the RF‑TIMBER Pro add-on module is missing in the printout report. Is it posssible to add this information to the printout report?
- I would like to convert the load from a surface load to a line load, that is, to apply it to the individual beams. How can I do this without using an auxiliary area?
- I have defined temperature loads, strain loads, or a precamber. Once I modify stiffnesses, the deformations are no longer plausible.
- Is it possible to transfer properties, such as the cross-section, or the surface thickness as well as the material of a surface, of an existing element to a new element?
- Is it possible to set user-defined values when viewing solid stress results?
- I have selected all available members for design in RF-/TIMBER Pro. Why are tapered members not designed?
- When performing the fire resistance design with TIMBER Pro, I get the error 10001. How can I fix the error?
