Calculation RF-LAMINATE 5.xx

Is it possible to design also smaller structural components such as GFRP angles in RF-LAMINATE?

Answer

RF-LAMINATE also allows for design of GFRP surfaces. Due to the method in background, you can even model the GFRP surfaces very well as the individual layer thicknesses of GFRP are very small (laminate theory). You can use the module also for small surfaces as long as the mesh is sufficiently fine. For the calculation, RF-LAMINATE creates a special stiffness matrix based on material properties and individual layer thicknesses.
