With which of your programs can you design thin-walled Z-purlins (including stability designs)?

Answer

The design of cold-formed, thin-walled structural components and plates is possible as a finite element calculation with the following programs. Basic program RFEM + RF-STABILITY (determination of bifurcation) + RF-IMP (generation of the pre-deformed FE mesh for the stability analysis) + RF-STEEL Surfaces (design of stresses determined according to the second-order analysis on the pre-deformed model).
