Actions are divided into permanent and variable actions. Permanent actions include self-weight, floor structure, roof structure, and others. Wind, snow and imposed loads represent variable actions. For example, wind loads usually have a favourable effect on a supporting structure, since they are generally lifting loads. Therefore, actions are further divided into actions with favourable and unfavourable effects.
Entering in RFEM/RSTAB
In RFEM/RSTAB, actions are assigned to each load case in action categories. In this case, the actions are classified according to the respective standard.
Besides the standardized gamma method, you can display the semi-rigid composite beams also as a framework model.
Depending on stiffness, mass, and damping, structures react differently to wind action.
Which units are specified in the result display of the support reactions (kN or kN/m)? A note about this is missing in the graphic.
In the case that the support reactions are given in kN/m, for which distance does the value apply?
- I design a cross-section created in the SHAPE‑THIN program by using the RF‑STEEL EC3 add-on module, but the program shows the error message "ER006 Invalid type of c/t-part for cross-section of type General." What can I do?
- How can I consider a sway bracing in CRANEWAY?
- Where do I find the setting to specify the entered structural component as a "wall" or "slab"?
- How can I model a timber-concrete composite floor?
- How can I consider a column/support settlement in the model?
- How is the static depth d calculated in the bending design of block foundations (calculation as equivalent beams)?
- Is it possible to quickly generate a truss girder with RFEM and RSTAB?
- Can the properties, such as B. the cross -section or the surface thickness as well as the material of a surface of an existing element for a new element?
I created a very simple model to check the manual calculation. I can't get to the expected results. Could you give me an advice please?
