RF-/JOINTS Steel - DSTV designs moment-resisting and pinned I-beam connections for members in compliance with the German guideline "Typified Connections in Steel Building Construction" (Typisierte Anschlüsse im Stahlhochbau). The resistances are determined according to the following standard:

  • European Union DIN EN 1993-1-8: Complete Edition 2013 and Supplement 2018
  • It is possible to design moment-resisting connections with flush and extended end plates as well as bending-resistant purlin joints, pinned girder joints using end plates and angles, and IK beam notches.

    The joints can be clearly visualized in the rendering mode. The program displays all required structural dimensions for end plates, angles, and the respective additional sections as well as the corresponding hole arrangements.

    Features

    • Design of moment resistant and simple joints of I-shaped rolled cross-sections according to Eurocode 3:
      • Moment-resistant end plate connections (type IH/IM)
      • Moment resistant purlin splices (PM type)
      • Simple joints with angle cleat and long angles (IW and IG types)
      • Simple joints with header end plates mounted either on web only or on web and flange (IS type)
      • Check of coped connections (IK) in combination with pinned end plates (IS) and angle connections (IW)
    • Automatic design of required joint with bolt sizes (all types)
    • Check of required thickness of load-bearing members for shear connections
    • Results of all required structural details such as appliances, hole arrangements, necessary extensions, a number of bolts, end plate dimensions, and welds
    • Results including stiffnesses Sj,ini of bending-resistant connections
    • Documentation of available loading and comparison with resistances
    • Results of design ratio for each individual joint
    • Automatic determination of governing internal forces for several load cases and connection nodes

    Input

    After opening the add-on module, it is necessary to select the joint type (moment resistant or pinned I-beam connection). You can select the individual nodes graphically in the RFEM/RSTAB model.

    The RF-/JOINTS Steel - DSTV add-on module recognizes the cross-section including the corresponding material automatically, and checks if a joint design according to the DSTV guideline is possible. Furthermore, you can model and design structurally similar connections on several locations in the beam structure.

    Design

    The extensive DSTV guideline is included in the database of the RF-/JOINTS Steel - DSTV add-on module. Each joint is characterized by a unique alpha-numeric code.

    The corresponding definitions of the DSTV connection type (IH, IW, IS, IG, and IK) and selection of the cross-section provide filtering option of the available DSTV joints. In this way, it is possible to determine the load-carrying capacity of the selected joint.

    Results

    After the calculation, all results are displayed in clearly-arranged module windows, for example by load case or by node. The governing internal forces are compared with the limit values listed in the DSTV guideline.

    You can visualize the joints graphically in the add-on module or in RFEM/RSTAB. In addition to input and result data in tables including design details, it is possible to add any graphic to the printout report. In this way, comprehensible and clearly arranged documentation is guaranteed.
