Connections Add-on Modules

RF-/FRAME-JOINT Pro Add-on Module for RFEM/RSTAB

The RF-/FRAME-JOINT Pro add‑on module creates and classifies rigid bolt connections between columns and horizontal beams according to Eurocode 3.

Optionally, it is possible to apply stiffeners, supplementary web plates, and backing plates. In addition, the module checks the geometrical feasibility of connections with respect to the size of the wrench used for tightening screws.

RF-/JOINTS Steel - DSTV Add-on Module for RFEM/RSTAB

The RF-/JOINTS Steel - DSTV add‑on module designs moment resisting and pinned I‑beam connections of members in compliance with the German guideline "Standardised Joints in Steel Structures". The resistances are determined according to the standard:

  • DIN EN 1993‑1‑8: Complete edition 2013

RF-/JOINTS Steel - Pinned Add-on Module for RFEM/RSTAB

The RF-/JOINTS Steel - Pinned add‑on module configures and designs shear connections of I‑beams according to Eurocode 3.

There are four different types available: Web cleat connection, fin plate connection, short end plate connection, and end plate connection with cleat.

RF-/JOINTS Steel - Column Base Add-on Module for RFEM/RSTAB

The RF-/JOINTS Steel - Column Base add‑on module designs footings of hinged and restrained column bases according to:

  • EN 1993‑1‑8 (including National Annexes)

RF-/JOINTS Steel - Tower Add-on Module for RFEM/RSTAB

The RF-/JOINTS Steel - Tower add‑on module designs nominally pinned bolted connections of members used in lattice towers (connection of diagonals without gusset plate 2D/3D) according to:

  • EN 1993‑1‑8 (including National Annexes)

RF-/JOINTS Steel - SIKLA Add-on Module for RFEM/RSTAB

RF-/JOINTS Steel - SIKLA performs joint design for fastening connections produced by Sikla according to German Expert Opinion (GS) with Test Report No. K14‑6005‑3.

RF-/JOINTS Timber - Steel to Timber Add-on Module for RFEM/RSTAB

The RF-/JOINTS Timber - Steel to Timber add‑on module designs joints where timber members are indirectly connected to each other by means of steel plates. The following dowel-type fasteners are available: dowels, bolts, nails, and screws. The design is performed according to:

  • EN 1995‑1‑1 (including National Annexes)
  • ANSI/AWC NDS‑2015 (including LRFD and ADS)
    • Load and Resistance Factor Design (LRFD)
    • Allowable Stress Design

RF-/JOINTS Timber - Timber to Timber Add-on Module for RFEM/RSTAB

The RF-/JOINTS Timber - Timber to Timber add‑on module designs joints where timber members are directly connected to each other by means of slant screws. The design is performed according to:

  • EN 1995‑1‑1 (including National Annexes)

RF-/LIMITS Add-on Module for RFEM/RSTAB

The RF-/LIMITS add‑on module analyses the load bearing capacity of members, member ends, nodes, nodal supports, and surfaces by means of a defined ultimate load capacity.

The extendable library covers timber fasteners (SIGHA, Sherpa, WÜRTH, Simpson StrongTie, KNAPP) as well as steel fasteners (standardised joints in steel structures according to EC 3, M‑connect).

RF-/HSS Add-on Module for RFEM/RSTAB

The RF-/HSS add‑on module analyzes various hollow section connections or designs an existing connection according to Eurocode 3.

It is possible to design planar and spatial truss nodes containing round, square or rectangular hollow sections.
