What can I do with a result beam?


The member type Result Beam is a virtual member which has no stiffness. It could be defined free and independent from the structure. It is used to integrate the internal forces of members, surfaces and solids in order to show them as member internal forces. With the help of this member type it is possible to greatly simplify the results evaluation of deep beams

By defining a cross-section you can use the result beam also for a design in add-on modules like RF-STEEL EC3 or RF-CONCRETE Members.

As an example, the graphic shows the determined reinforcement of window and door lintels and a split-level ceiling.
