ContentOnline basic training on earthquake design according to Eurocode 8 using the FEM static program RFEM
In this training you will learn the basics of structural dynamics and the most important verification methods for earthquake design. Using a practical example, the multi-modal response spectrum method and its implementation in RFEM and the associated modules of the RF-DYNAM Pro series is explained. Open questions can be discussed.

"I have watched the webinar recording "Design of Cross-laminated Timber Panels (CLT) According to Eurocode 5" on YouTube and I am impressed by about the program and the very good presentation.
When calculating a surface model, the internal forces are determined separately for each finite element. Since the element-by-element results usually represent a discontinuous distribution, RFEM performs smoothing of the internal forces.
Definition of a load combination for the earthquake design situation (Equation 2) and the resulting axial forces.
Equivalent Loads for First Mode Shape (a) Without Stiffness Modifications from DLC1 and (b) Taking into Account Geometric Stiffness Matrix from DLC2
Calculation parameters of load cases with exported equivalent loads. The geometric stiffness matrix must also be taken into account here; normal forces are imported from CO1 for this.
- Do you provide a free viewer to open the RFEM or RSTAB files?
- Does it make any difference if I model a flush beam as a "Rib" or as a "Result Beam"?
- How can I create a solid of revolution?
- How can I select the members that have a certain material?
- How can I define the exact location in the case of a message saying that distorted FE elements have been found? These areas cannot be detected at first glance.
- I cannot select, move or delete my line grids anymore. Can you help me?
In the case of member loads, the loads are entered in Table "3.2 Member Loads." I can view or change the values.
In my model, I have applied generated loads. Should the member loads not be also visible in Table "3.15 Generated Loads"?
- RF-/DYNAM Pro - Equivalent Loads includes the result tables "5.8/5.9/5.10 - Equivalent Loads." Which sum is displayed in the case of the "All mode shapes" option?
- Is it possible to display natural frequencies separately for each direction?
- Is it possible to consider the second-order theory in a dynamic analysis in RSTAB?
