A typical application case is the graphical display of the convergence curve in an iterative calculation.
It is possible to freely define the layout of the vertical and horizontal axis of the calculation diagram. In this way, you can graphically evaluate the deformation of a particular node during the calculation, for example.
Entering in RFEM and RSTAB
The 'Calculation Diagrams' tab in the 'Calculation Parameters' dialog box is available in RFEM and RSTAB under 'Calculation' → 'Calculation Parameters'. You can define several calculation diagrams here.
In the add-on modules RF-/TIMBER Pro, RF-/TIMBER AWC, and RF-/TIMBER CSA, it is possible to consider the resulting deformation of a member or set of members. In addition to the local directions y and z, you also have the option ‘R’. This allows you to compare the total deflection of a girder to the limit values given in the standards.
- Normal stresses σx from axial force and bending
- Shear stresses τ from shear force and torsion
- Equivalent stresses σv with comparison to limit stress
- Stress ratios related to equivalent stresses
- Normal stress σx from unit normal force N
- Shear stress τ from unit shear forces Vy , Vz , Vu , Vv
- Normal stress σx from unit moments My , Mz Mu , Mv
- I would like to define a line support with ineffective tension and apply the tension force on this line by using a nodal support instead. Why does the line support still receive a tension force?
- Are the models and presentations from Info Day 2019 freely available, and can you send them to me?
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?
Is it possible to specify shrinkage effects as loads?
- How can I consider a sway bracing in CRANEWAY?
I have modeled a ceiling slab supported on a shear wall. The shear wall should only absorb axial forces. So I have inserted a line hinge between the surfaces and defined it the way that the hinges are available for all internal forces except for those in the ux direction.
Although there is no hinge defined for ux, the plate deforms without being supported by the shear wall. Where is the error?
- 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?
