Are boundary conditions transferred from RFEM/RSTAB when performing the analysis in RF‑/STEEL Warping Torsion or General Method in RF‑/STEEL EC3?

Answer

Nodal supports and boundary conditions are preset, but not imported. As a rule, you have to adjust them.

In the case of the General Method for the set of members design in RF‑/STEEL EC3, nodal supports phi_x ' and u_y' are predefined at the set of members start and end, which represents a support with torsional restraints for all straight sets of members.

In RF-/STEEL Warping Torsion, nodal supports u_x, u_y, u_z, and phi_x are always predefined at the set of members start and end.
