Design of Steel Members According to South African Standard SANS 10162-1:2011

The RF-/STEEL SANS add‑on module performs the ultimate and the serviceability limit state design of members and sets of members according to:

  •  SANS 10162‑1:2011 (South African standard)

  1. Detailed settings for the ultimate limit state

    Features

    • Design of members and sets of members for tension, compression, bending, shear, torsion, and combined internal forces
    • Stability analysis of buckling, 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
    • Alternative analysis of critical buckling moment for standard situations
    • Optional application of discrete lateral supports to beams
    • 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 steels, symmetrical and asymmetrical as well as parameterized I-, T- and angle sections, double angles
    • Clearly arranged input and 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 volume specifications
    • Seamless integration in RFEM/RSTAB
  2. Lateral supports

    Working with RF-/STEEL SANS

    It is necessary to enter material, load and combination data in RFEM/RSTAB in compliance with the design concept specified by the standard SANS 10162-1:2011. The RFEM/RSTAB material library already contains materials relevant for the South African standard.

    The RF-/STEEL SANS add-on module requires members and sets of members as well as load cases, load combinations, and result combinations to be designed. In the next 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 in the module.

  3. Module window 2.2 Design by Cross-Section

    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.
