Design of Sikla Joints

The RF-/JOINTS Steel - SIKLA add-on module performs joint design for fastening connections produced by the Sikla manufacturer according to:

  • German Expert Opinion (GS) with Test Report No. K14‑6005‑3

  1. Features

    • Design of the following Sikla joints:
      • Brackets of type AK and TKO
      • End plates of type STA, WBD, and WD
    • Interaction of internal forces
    • Consideration of eccentricities
    • Determination of nonlinear spring constants
    • Automatic check of connection geometry
    • Check of connected girder cross‑sections
    • Documentation of existing loading and comparison with load resistance
    • Results of design ratio for each individual joint
    • Automatic determination of governing internal forces for several load cases and connection nodes
  2. Window 1.1 General Data

    Input

    After opening the add-on module, it is necessary to select the joint type (end plate or bracket). You can select the individual nodes graphically in the RFEM/RSTAB model.

    The RF-/JOINTS Steel - SIKLA add‑on module checks the cross‑section and materials of the connected members. It is possible to model and design structurally similar connections on several locations in the structure.

  3. Window 3.1 Designs - Summary

    Design and Results

    The existing loading is compared with the load resistances stored in the database. The program also performs the interaction of internal forces M, N, and Q.

    After the calculation, all results are displayed in clearly-arranged module windows, for example by load case or by node.

    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.
