In RFEM and RSTAB, it is possible to define various cross-sections for a member start and a member end. Hinges, eccentricities and member divisions can also be related to both the member start and the member end. Therefore, it is important to know where are the member start and the member end located.
You can show or hide the display of the member orientation in Project Navigator - Display (see the figure).
If it is necessary to change the direction of a member, the orientation can be reversed by right-clicking the member and using the corresponding option in the shortcut menu.
The reinforced concrete design for the fire situation is carried out according to the simplified method according to EN 1992-1-2 clause 4.2. The "zone method" described in Annex B.2 is used.
Depending on stiffness, mass, and damping, structures react differently to wind action.
- How can I model a timber-concrete composite floor?
- Is it possible to parameterize models and loads with RFEM and RSTAB?
My license does not work, what can I do?
- Why is there no support force displayed even though I have modeled the member foundation?
- RFEM calculates all load combinations automatically according to the second-order analysis. Is it possible to deactivate this?
- Is it possible to change the font size of dimensions?
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?
- I would like to calculate a multi-span beam. Is it possible to automatically apply imposed loads by span (for the design of the largest supporting moment and moment in the span)?
- How the shear deformation of a member can be taken into account?
