  2. Details - Stability

    Working with RF-/ALUMINUM

    The data specified in RFEM/RSTAB concerning material, loads, and load combinations must comply with the design concept of the Eurocode. Relevant materials are already covered in the material library of RFEM/RSTAB. Furthermore, RFEM/RSTAB allows for an automatic creation of load and result combinations in accordance with the Eurocode. It is also possible to generate all combinations manually.

    In the RF-/ALUMINUM add-on module, it is necessary to select members and sets of members as well as the load cases, load and result combinations for the design. In the next steps, you can adjust the presettings for lateral intermediate supports and effective lengths.

    In the case of using continuous members, you can define individual support conditions and eccentricities for each intermediate node of the single members. A special FEA tool determines the critical loads and moments required for the stability analysis.

  3. .1 Design by Load Case

    Results

    The first result window shows the maximum design ratios with the corresponding design for each designed load case and combination.

    The other windows show all detailed results sorted by specific topics. It is possible to display all intermediate results of each location along the members. In this way, you can easily retrace how the module performs the individual designs.

    The complete module data is part of the RFEM/RSTAB printout report. You can select the report contents and results extent specifically for the individual designs.
