Customer Project

2 March 2020





The ALBYR Structures team was awarded the design for a new industrial hall in a high seismic activity region. The hall includes seven interior double-hinged frames with tapered beam ends as well as floor levels for offices. The columns were designed to support crane girders for a 5 ton crane.

Structural Analysis and Modeling

Since the structure is not of unusual shape or size, the ALBYR Structures team was able to model the 3D building in RFEM to generate the wind and snow loads automatically. Parametric modeling was used for all frame geometry to allow for quick changes. The engineers generated the crane load cases in Excel for direct import into RFEM. Additionally, the RFEM add-on modules RF-DYNAM Pro were used to generate seismic load cases.

ALBYR Structures also utilized the RF-STABILITY add-on module to calculate exact column effective lengths which were imported into the RF-STEEL EC3 design module. Afterwards, it was possible to verify and optimize all members with the RF-STEEL EC3 design module.
