Dlubal RFEM 5 & RSTAB 8 - Add-on Modules: RF‑ALUMINUM (According to Eurocode 9)
Light, durable, sustainable - aluminum is an excellent material in many cases. This video shows how easy it is to design your lightweight structure utilizing the RF-/ALUMINUM add-on module.
The RF-/ALUMINUM add-on module performs all typical ultimate limit state, stability, and serviceability limit state designs for aluminum components/aluminum structures according to Eurocode 9.
Define your loading and the National Annex for the design in the add-on module.
Afterwards, define all relevant component properties in clearly arranged windows.
Possible transverse welds and the related reduced ultimate limit states of your cross-sections are included in the design.
Finally, you define the boundary conditions for the stability and deformation analyses.
In addition to the automatic cross-section classification, you can also optimize cross-sections automatically.
All performed designs are clearly displayed in tables and you can display them as result diagrams for members and sets of members in the main program.
You can also consider your user-defined aluminum cross-sections from SHAPE-THIN in RSTAB and RFEM, and design them in the ALUMINUM add-on module.
Document all designs - from internal forces determination to design - in the general printout report of RSTAB or RFEM.

Consideration of Heat-Affected Zone for Aluminium | Consideration of Heat-Affected Zone for Aluminium
In the case of open cross-sections, the torsional load is removed mainly via secondary torsion, since the St. Venant torsional stiffness is low compared to the warping stiffness.
