Design of Steel Members According to Code of Practice for the Structural Use of Steel 2011 (Buildings Department - Hong Kong)

The RF-/STEEL HK add‑on module designs members and sets of members for the ultimate and the serviceability limit state according to the standard

  •  Code of Practice for the Structural Use of Steel 2011 (Buildings Department - Hong Kong)

  1. Features

    • Design of tension, compression, bending, shear, and combined internal forces
    • Stability analysis of flexural buckling 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
    • Optional application of discrete lateral supports to beams
    • Automatic cross-section classification
    • Deformation analysis (serviceability)
    • Cross-section optimization
    • Wide range of cross‑sections available, for example rolled I‑sections, C‑sections, rectangular hollow sections, angles, double angles (arrangement with flange on flange), T‑sections, and welded cross‑sections: I‑shaped (symmetrical and asymmetrical about major axis), channel sections (symmetrical about major axis), rectangular hollow sections (symmetrical and asymmetrical about major axis), angles, round pipes, round bars
    • Clearly arranged result windows
    • Detailed result documentation including references to design equations of the standard used
    • Various filter and sorting options of results including result lists by member, cross‑section, x‑location, or by load cases, load and result combinations
    • Result window of member slenderness and governing internal forces
    • Parts list with weight and solid specifications
    • Seamless integration in RFEM/RSTAB
  2. Lateral Supports

    Working with RF-/STEEL HK

    It is necessary to enter material, load and combination data in RFEM/RSTAB in compliance with the design concept specified by Code of Practice for the Structural Use of Steel 2011 (Buildings Department - Hong Kong).

    In RF-/STEEL HK, you can define members and sets of members as well as load cases, load combinations, and result combinations to be designed. In the following 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.

  3. Design by Load Case

    Results

    The first result window shows the maximum design ratios including the corresponding design of each designed load case, load combination, or 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.
