RX-TIMBER Column analyzes rectangular and circular timber columns according to the standard EN 1995‑1‑1 (EC 5) or DIN 1052‑2008. The stand‑alone program performs the ultimate and the serviceability limit state designs as well as fire resistance designs.

  1. Features

    • Design of the following column types:
      • Hinged column, optionally with elastic restraint of head or footing
      • Bracket, optionally with elastic restraint of footing
    • Simple geometry input with illustrative graphics
    • Extensive material library
    • Allocation of the model to service classes and specification of service class categories
    • Detailed settings of the fire resistance design
    • Specification of limit deformation for the serviceability limit state design
    • Determination of design ratios, support forces, and deformations
    • For design according to EC 5 (EN 1995), the following National Annexes are available:
      • Deutschland DIN EN 1995-1-1/NA:2013-08 (Germany)
      • NBN EN 1995-1-1/ANB:2012-07 (Belgium)
      • DK EN 1995-1-1/NA:2011-12 (Denmark)
      • SFS EN 1995-1-1/NA:2007-11 (Finland)
      • NF EN 1995-1-1/NA:2010-05 (France)
      • UNI EN 1995-1-1/NA:2010-09 (Italy)
      • NEN EN 1995-1-1/NB:2007-11 (Netherlands)
      • ÖNORM B 1995-1-1:2015-06 (Austria)
      • PN EN 1995-1-1/NA:2010-09 (Poland)
      • SS EN 1995-1-1 (Sweden)
      • STN EN 1995-1-1/NA:2008-12 (Slovakia)
      • SIST EN 1995-1-1/A101:2006-03 (Slovenia)
      • CSN EN 1995-1-1:2007-09 (Czech Republic)
      • BS EN 1995-1-1/NA:2009-10 (United Kingdom)
    • Automatic generation of wind and snow loads
    • Multiple optional reductions according to the selected standard
    • Direct data export to MS Excel
    • Program languages: English, German, Czech, Italian, Spanish, French, Portuguese, Polish, Chinese, Dutch and Russian
    • Verifiable printout report including all required designs. Printout report available in many output languages, for example English, German, French, Italian, Spanish, Russian, Czech, Polish, Portuguese, Chinese or Dutch.
    • Direct import of stp files from various CAD programs
  2. Input

    There are various options available for column modeling. Graphical representations facilitate the geometry input. Modifications are updated automatically. The relevant timber grade of the material can be selected from the material library. There are the strength classes of glulam, poplar and softwood timber available as defined in the respective standards.

    In addition, you can generate a strength class with user-defined material properties and thus extend the material library. The load cases entered can be checked graphically and combined automatically in load combinations.

  3. Design

    In RX-TIMBER Column, the following calculation settings are available:

    • Selection of the designs to be performed (ULS, SLS, fire resistance)
    • Determination of displaying support forces and deformations
    • Definition of parameters for fire resistance design according to the simplified method
  4. Results

    After the calculation, the results of performed designs including all required intermediate values are displayed in clearly arranged result tables sorted by various criteria.

    Since the program displays the intermediate values in detail, transparency of all designs is ensured. Furthermore, it is possible to display the distribution of results for each x-location of the column. In this way, both the deformations and the individual internal forces can be displayed.

    Designs with design details and selected result diagrams can be added in the printout report providing clearly arranged documentation. It is possible to select which calculation data will be covered in the printout.
