Wieland Götzler General RFEM RF-STABILITY RF-STEEL RF-IMP

With which of your programs can you measure thin-walled Z-purlins (incl. Stability checks)?

Answer

The dimensioning of cold - formed, thin - walled components and sheets is possible as a finite element calculation with the following programs. Basic program RFEM + RF-Stable (determination of the branching figure) + RF-IMP (generation of the pre-deformed FE mesh for the proof of stability) + RF-STAHL surfaces (calculation of the second-order theory determined stresses on the pre-formed model).
