Entering in RFEM
A nodal constraint can be entered by using the menu 'Insert' → 'Model Data' → 'Nodal Constraints' or using Project Navigator - Data → 'Model Data' → 'Nodal Constraints'.
There are two types of constraints available for selection: the 'Diaphragm Constraint' type couples all degrees of freedom perpendicular to the plane, while the 'Equal Condition Constraint' type allows you to determine the constraints individually.
This time, we want to look at modeling downstand beams by means of ribs.
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.
- How can I create a curved or arched section?
- How are the signs for the release results of a line release and line hinges interpreted?
- Is it possible to manually specify a longitudinal reinforcement for design in RF‑PUNCH Pro?
- Is it possible to design the support pressure or the compression perpendicular to the grain in RX‑TIMBER?
- After the design with RF‑/TIMBER Pro, I optimized a cross-section. Why is the utilization of the optimized cross-section exceeded now?
- Can I simulate the cracked state of a concrete cross-section for a bending beam with the "Isotropic Nonlinear Elastic 1D" material model?
- Why are the stresses of the 90° orientation not displayed for a layer with the orthotropy direction 90° for σb,90 in RF‑LAMINATE?
- Why is the deflection of the reinforced concrete floor sometimes greater when selecting a larger basic reinforcement?
- How can I view the depth of the concrete compression zone in RF‑/CONCRETE?
- I have a question about the message No. 47 in RFEM. What is the exact meaning of the word "integrate"? What is the resulting effect?
