The settlements of a rigid square foundation on a lacustrine clay [1] are calculated with RFEM. One quarter of the foundation is modelled. The foundation has a width of 75.0 m in both sides. Construction stages are used to generate the results.

In the current verification example, we investigate wind force coefficient (Cf) of cube shapes with EN 1991-1-4 [1]. There are three dimensional cases that we will explain more about if in the next part.

The available standards, such as EN 1991-1-4 [1], ASCE/SEI 7-16, and NBC 2015 presented wind load parameters such as wind pressure coefficient (Cp) for basic shapes. The important point is how to calculate wind load parameters faster and more accurately rather than working on time-consuming as well as sometimes complicated formulas in standards.

Determine the required strengths and effective length factors for the ASTM A992 material columns in the moment frame shown in Figure 1 for the maximum gravity load combination, using LRFD and ASD.
An ASTM A992 W-shaped member is selected to carry a dead load of 30.000 kips and a live load of 90.000 kips in tension. Verify the member strength using both LRFD and ASD.
An ASTM A992 14×132 W-shaped column is loaded with the given axial compression forces. The column is pinned top and bottom in both axes. Determine whether the column is adequate to support the loading shown in Figure 1 based on LRFD and ASD.
Consider an ASTM A992 W 18x50 beam forspan and uniform dead and live loads as shown in Figure 1. The member is limited to a maximum nominal depth of 18 inches. The live load deflection is limited to L/360. The beam is simply supported and continuously braced. Verify the available flexural strength of the selected beam, based on LRFD and ASD.  
An ASTM A992 W 24×62 beam with end shears of 48.000 and 145.000 kips from the dead and live loads, respectively, is shown in Figure 1. Verify the available shear strength of the selected beam, based on LRFD and ASD.
Using AISC Manual tables, determine the available compressive and flexural strengths and whether the ASTM A992 W14x99 beam has sufficient available strength to support the axial forces and moments shown in Figure 1, obtained from a second-order analysis that includes P-𝛿 effects.

A reinforced concrete slab inside a building is to be designed as a 1.0 m stripe with members. The floor slab is uniaxially spanned and runs through two spans. The slab is fixed on masonry walls with free-rotating supports. The middle support has a width of 240 mm and the two edge supports have a width of 120 mm. The two spans are subjected to an imposed load of category C: congregation areas.
