Describing the procedure for the serviceability limit state design of a floor slab made of steel fiber reinforced concrete.
Display extended strains of members, surfaces and solids (e.g. important principal strains, equivalent total strains, etc.) in the Project Navigator - Results in RFEM as well as in Table 4.0.
For example, you can display governing plastic strains when performing the plastic design of connections with surface elements.
- I compare the flexural buckling design according to the equivalent member method and the internal forces according to the linear static analysis with the stress calculation according to the second-order analysis including imperfections. The differences are very large. What is the reason?
- How can I set the deformation coefficient kdef in the program?
- Why is no support force displayed even though I have bedded the member?
Is it possible to change the font size of dimensions?
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?
- I design a cross-section created in the SHAPE‑THIN program by using the RF‑STEEL EC3 add-on module, but the program shows the error message "ER006 Invalid type of c/t-part for cross-section of type General." What can I do?
- I would like to calculate a multi-span beam. Is it possible to automatically apply imposed loads by span (for the design of the largest supporting moment and moment in the span)?
How the shear deformation of a member can be taken into account?
Is it possible to calculate American steel cross-sections?
How can I only display cross-section names in the panel for cross-section colors, without the standard and steel grade?
