Are effective length factors determined automatically from a model in the add-on modules for the aluminum and steel design or do I have to make adjustments?

Answer

All effective length factors are preset to 1.0 by default. There is no calculation of the factors based on the model.


The effective length factors must be adjusted manually for the design or can be imported from the add‑on modules RSBUCK or RF‑STABILITY.
