RF-/TOWER Effective Lengths Add-on Module for RFEM/RSTAB

Product Description

  • Mast Structure

Calculation of Effective Lengths for Lattice Towers

The RF-/TOWER Effective Lengths add‑on module determines the effective lengths of members used in lattice towers with square, rectangular or triangular floor plans.

When entering data, the program considers user‑created lattice towers generated in the main program RFEM/RSTAB as well as lattice towers from the modules RF‑/TOWER Structure and RF‑/TOWER Equipment. After the effective lengths are determined, they can be exported to the RF‑/TOWER Design add‑on module for further designs.

  1. Features

    • Determination of effective lengths for lattice tower members created in RFEM/RSTAB or RF-/TOWER Structure and RF-/TOWER Equipment
    • Options to consider nodal restraints of various bracings
  2. Input

    General data defines the tower type, a number of equipment, and member allocation in the individual categories. The members of lattice towers previously defined in the RF-/TOWER Structure and/or RF-/TOWER Equipment add-on modules are allocated automatically.

  3. Details

    In the Details dialog box, you can specify nodal restraints of the individual bracing types. It is possible for example to define the intersection points of horizontal and vertical bracing to be kept perpendicular to the bracing plane.
  4. Results

    After generating the effective lengths, the results are displayed in clearly-arranged tables. There you can modify the effective lengths manually.

    The Export function transfers the effective lengths to the RF-/TOWER Design add-on module for further calculation. All module data is included in the RFEM/RSTAB printout report. The report contents and the extent of the results can be selected specifically for the individual designs.
