A position refers to all individual structural components and is given a unique description, the so-called position number. It can consist of an ascending numbering or letters and serve to explain the structural planning of the structure.
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.
- 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"?
- 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 model a timber-concrete composite floor?
- Is it possible to model a slab made of trapezoidal sheet metals?
Is it possible to model and design tapered castellated beams in RF-STEEL AISC?
- How can I consider a column/support settlement in the model?
- How is the static depth d calculated in the bending design of block foundations (calculation as equivalent beams)?
- Is it possible to quickly generate a truss girder with RFEM and RSTAB?
