What can I use a result beam for?

Answer

The member type of "Result Member" is a virtual member without any stiffness, which can be freely arranged in the model, and is used to integrate the internal forces of members, surfaces, and solids to show them as member internal forces. For example, it can substantially simplify the result evaluation of deep beams.

By defining a cross-section for the result beam, it is possible to carry out the design in the add-on modules, such as RF‑STEEL EC3, RF‑TIMBER Pro, or RF‑CONCRETE Members.

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