In theory, an ideal gas consists of freely moving mass particles without extension in a volume space. In this space, each particle moves at a speed in one direction. The collision of one particle with another particle or the volume limitations lead to a deflection and a change in the speed of the particles.
The versions RFEM 5.13.01 and RSTAB 8.13.01 and the corresponding add-on modules contain the following new features. Customers with a service contract can download the latest Dlubal program versions at any time.
Efficient design of prestressed structural components requires a few additional steps that go beyond the standard reinforced concrete design, from modelling tendons, to the calculation of equivalent loads, to the cross-section resistance design.
Printout reports created in RFEM and RSTAB can be transferred to VCmaster using a direct interface and further processed there. VCmaster (formerly BauText) is a word processing program for engineers. Calculations, drawings, photos and documents from various sources can be easily compiled, managed and used again with VCmaster.
