Calculation RF-LTB

Is it possible to analyze cantilevers in LTB and which method is the calculation based on?

Answer

Important progress of LTB in comparison with the previous version is the calculation of cantilevers. This involves mainly the correct determination of the ideal elastic critical moment Mcr.

You can specify this moment for singly symmetric I-sections applying "Lohse" (LTB 5 manual, Chapter 3.4.4).

Drehbettung und gebundene Drehachsen können dabei aber keine Berücksichtigung finden.
