How can I consider the flexibility of a continuous beam with slotted dowel connections?


The easiest way to consider this is to use the RF‑/JOINTS Timber - Steel to Timber add-on module. For this purpose, the module decomposes the original connection, and creates a new structural system that considers the flexibility accordingly. In this case, the ultimate limit state, the serviceability limit state, and the accidental design situations are considered separately.
