Add-on Modules FRAME-JOINT Pro RF-FRAME-JOINT Pro 8.xx 5.xx

After starting the calculation, RF-/FRAME-JOINT Pro appears in the "1.4.1 Beam on the right - Part 1" window and the following error message appears: "The value is out of the allowed range. Design Value: 6.00 - Min. value: 7.50". There seems to be no correlation with this window. What is the mistake?

Answer

The beam is a rolled section with welded taper from sheets or an I-section. In order to use such a cross-section in RF-/FRAME-JOINT Pro, the web thickness of the welded component has to have at least the same value as the main cross-section web.
