Hemsedal Alpine Suites, Norway
The "Hemsedal Ski Center" in the Scandinavian Alps is one of the top 3 ski resorts in Norway. It comprises a total of 49 ski slopes and 20 surface lifts. At the foot of the mountainside, a new apartment hotel with 100 modern rooms will be completed by the end of 2017.

In addition to an underground parking garage, a restaurant, and commercial units, it will contain climbing walls, among other things.
DBC AS from Gol, Norway analyzed the spatial model in RFEM and provided the internal forces to the prefabricated construction producer (concrete & steel). Furthermore, DBC AS was responsible for the detailed planning of all in-situ concrete constructions.
Hemsedal Alpine Suites consists of two buildings with 6 floors each. The buildings are connected to each other by spatial steel trusses made of square pipe sections.
The model of Building A consists of 795 members and 421 surfaces. The main materials used are steel and reinforced concrete.
For the roof covering of the building, Lett‑Tak elements were used (sandwich elements with integrated thin steel sections). These elements were modeled as orthotropic surfaces with the stiffnesses determined by the Lett‑Tak company on the basis of tests.

The construction industry is increasingly digitized. Structural engineers, a smaller group in the construction industry, are not always considered to be engineers who follow the latest trends immediately. There is often good reason for this.

Different Options of Deriving the Analysis Model for a Bolted Steel Connection (Red Lines and Nodes) for Structural Analysis and Design
- When I apply an area load to a surface with an opening, the load is not not accounted for at the opening. Is it possible to automatically consider the area load as a line load around the opening perimeter?
- Is it also possible to determine stiffnesses of an existing column instead of a fixed nodal support?
- I just have to calculate an open hall with low roof loads and relatively high wind loads compared to it. In theory, a design of the bottom flange for buckling/toppling would have to be performed. Unfortunately, there is no combination of 1.0 * G +1.5 * W.
- How do I get the largest column load in my RFEM 3D model?
- Where can I find the materials for the corresponding National Annexes in RFEM 6 and RSTAB 9?
- How do I apply wind load on members of open structures?
- Is it also possible to use RF‑/TOWER Loading without the other TOWER add-on modules?
- I do not want to design a cross-section in the RF‑/STEEL EC3 add-on module. Can I quickly remove this cross-section from the selection?
- I have a roof structure resting on a steel column that runs to the foundations. The column runs through a perimeter wall that supports the false ceiling. A considerable part of the load from the roof is transferred to the wall. I want the steel column to carry all the vertical loads from the roof. How can I do it?
- Are the models and presentations from Info Day 2018 freely available, and can you send them to me?
