    Features

    • Design of members and sets of members for tension, compression, bending, shear, combined internal forces, and torsion
    • Stability analysis of flexural, torsional, and lateral-torsional buckling
    • Automatic determination of critical buckling loads and critical buckling moments for general load applications and support conditions by means of a special FEA program (eigenvalue analysis) integrated in the module
    • Alternative analytical calculation of critical buckling moments for standard situations
    • Optional application of discrete lateral supports to beams and continuous members
    • Automatic cross-section classification
    • Serviceability limit state design (deflection)
    • Cross-section optimization
    • Wide range of cross-sections available, for example rolled I-sections, C-sections, T-sections, angles, rectangular and circular hollow sections, round bars, symmetrical, asymmetrical and parameterized I- and T-sections as well as angles and double angles
    • Clearly arranged input and result windows
    • Detailed result documentation including references to design equations of the used standard

    Working with RF-/STEEL CSA

    It is necessary to enter material, load and combination data in RFEM/RSTAB in compliance with the design concept specified by CSA S16. The RFEM/RSTAB material library already contains materials relevant for the Canadian standard.

    RFEM/RSTAB automatically creates the corresponding load combinations according to the Canadian standard. However, you can also create all combinations manually in RFEM/RSTAB. The RF-/STEEL CSA add-on module requires members and sets of members as well as load cases, load combinations, and result combinations to be designed.

    In the subsequent input windows, you can adjust preset definitions of lateral intermediate supports and effective lengths. In the case of continuous members, it is possible to define individual support conditions and eccentricities for each intermediate node of single members. A special FEA tool determines critical loads and moments required for the stability analysis.

    Results

    The first result window shows the maximum design ratios including the corresponding design of each designed load case (load combination / result combination).  

    The other result windows list all detailed results sorted by specific subject in extendable tree menus. All intermediate results along a member can be displayed at any location. In this way, you can easily retrace how the module has performed the individual designs.  

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