After starting the module, the joint group (rigid joints) is selected first, followed by joint category and joint type (rigid end plate connection or rigid splice plate connection). The nodes to be designed are then selected from the RFEM/RSTAB model. RF-/JOINTS Steel - Rigid automatically recognizes the joint members and determines from its location whether they are columns or beams. The user can intervene here.
If certain members are to be excluded from the calculation, they can be deactivated. Structurally similar connections can be designed for several nodes at the same time. The governing load cases, load combinations or result combinations have to be selected for the loading. Alternatively, you can enter the cross‑section and load data manually. The joint is configured step by step in the last input table.
- Where can I find the internal forces at certain nodes in the printout report?
- Is it possible to export steel connections from JOINTS to a CAD program?
- How can I perform the design of the tension resistance of a smooth column in a smooth bucket column base, that is, the design against pulling out the column?
- Which Dlubal Software programs can I use to calculate and design timber structures?
- Is it possible to use one of the RFEM/RSTAB add-on modules to design a frame corner with a docked beam, stiffeners, and any number of bolt rows?
- Is it possible to design a restrained column base with stiffeners on both sides of the column in an RFEM/RSTAB add-on module?
- For a truss with the steel lower flange and timber diagonals, I would like to design the connection of the diagonals. Is this possible?
- Is it possible to automatically consider the flexibility of the fasteners in the RF-/JOINTS Timber - Steel to Timber module when determining the internal forces?
- How many members can be connected to a node in RF-/JOINTS Timber - Steel to Timber and what is the minimum angle between the members?
- Can I consider the normal force when designing a rigid end plate connection according to the DSTV guideline?
