We provide hints and tips to help you get started with the main programs RFEM and RSTAB.
When analyzing a member in RF-/STEEL EC3, the result windows show a difference between the moments listed in design internal forces and the moments used in the design. What has caused this difference?
If this difference appears in the design Bending and Compression according to 6.3.3., you can find the explanation in Eurocode 1993-1-1, Cl. 6.3.3. (4). In the explanation of variables, there is written: "the design values of the compression force and the maximum moments". The word "maximum" should be emphasized here. Therefore, the results display the corresponding axial force in the case of design by x‑locations. However, this force applies the maximal moments on the member or set of members.
