Coil springs are also used in RFEM and RSTAB. In this case, the axial stiffness is determined by the spring constant. The flexural resistance is negligible in such springs.
Entering in RFEM and RSTAB
In the program, the 'Spring' member type is available. The limit values of the spring can be specified via the deformation or the force. As an alternative, it is also possible to define them by means of a diagram. Thus, the spring properties can be modelled precisely.
The stiffness of gas given by the ideal gas law pV = nRT can be considered in the nonlinear dynamic analysis.
The calculation of gas is available for accelerograms and time diagrams for both the explicit analysis and the nonlinear implicit Newmark analysis. To determine the gas behaviour correctly, at least two FE layers for gas solids should be defined.
- I would like to calculate and design "temporary structures." What do I need for this?
- Which programs can I use to calculate and design power plants?
- I would like to design an aluminum or lightweight structure. Is it possible to use RFEM or RSTAB for this?
- Are the models and presentations from Info Day 2020 freely available, and can you send them to me?
- Are the models and presentations from Info Day 2017 freely available, and can you send them to me?
- Is it possible to control the beam steering of an antenna in RF‑/TOWER Design?
- Is it possible to use Dlubal Software for the calculation and design of 5G transmission masts, antenna masts, or towers?

- I have used the RF‑/DYNAM Pro add-on module to generate the governing result combinations of seismic loads. What is the next procedure to perform the design of the individual structural components?
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?
