For example, if there are two load increments specified, a half of the load is applied in the first step. It is iterated until the equilibrium is found. In the second step, the full load is then applied to the already deformed system and iterated again until the equilibrium is found.
Load increments have a negative effect on the computing time.
Arbitrary point load distributions often occur in the load definition of member structures.
The material model Orthotropic Masonry 2D is an elastoplastic model that additionally allows softening of the material, which can be different in the local x- and y-direction of a surface. The material model is suitable for (unreinforced) masonry walls with in-plane loads.
Is it possible to calculate American steel cross-sections?
- Where do I find the setting to specify the entered structural component as a "wall" or "slab"?
- The four plates, identically loaded, show different negative moments at the point of support. Is this a mistake?
- How can I quickly model a chimney with reinforcement rings and stiffeners?
- The protocol lacks information on the limit time for the assessment of fire resistance R in the RF-TIMBER Pro add-on module. Can this information be added to the report?
- How can I model and design general bolted connections with the surface and solid elements in RFEM?
- I get the message "Existing torsion -> no stability design possible." Why does this appear and what can I do?
- I design an asymmetric cross-section and get the message: "Non-designable: ER051) Moment about z‑axis on asymmetric cross-section, taper or set of members." Why?
- How can I consider holes in steel members?
- How can I model a timber-concrete composite floor?
