Markus Baumgärtel Modeling | Structure RFEM

My question relates to an elastic support of the rib on a wall, when the joist and the ceiling are in reality deposited on this wall:
In this case, should an extra elastic bearing be provided for the rib?


Normally, it should be sufficient to provide only the ceiling plate with linear bearings.
The rib is already part of the ceiling as a slab beam anyway. You still want to
store the rod with a knot bearing, you could share the line just before the rib
and remove the line storage at the remaining piece. Incidentally, this method would not display a warning when calculating that the node contains both a node storage and a linear storage.

There are already some interesting technical papers on the subject of beams on our homepage (see links).
