Knowledge Base Articles
When connecting tension -loaded components with bolted connections, the cross -section weakening due to the bolt holes must be considered in the ultimate limit state design. The following article describes how the design of the tension resistance according to DIN EN 1993-1-1 can be performed with the net cross-section area of the tension member in the RF-/STEEL EC3 add-on module.

The calculated stresses and settlements are displayed in result windows. In addition, it is possible to evaluate the results graphically. The graphic displays the position and the layer arrangement of the soil samples to clarify the results.
The final result window shows the elastic foundation coefficients. Graphical evaluation is possible as well.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
- What happens if I activate the "Soil failure" function in RF-SOILIN?
- For the settlement calculation in the RF‑SOILIN add-on module, the specific weight gamma and gamma,sat are required for the soil. What do I need the value gamma,sat for, and how is it assumed in the calculation?
- In the intermediate results of RF‑SOILIN, there are red values displayed. What is it all about?
- Currently, I have the problem that the calculation in RF-SOILIN takes extremely long time and does not converge. What can I do?
- Does the calculation in RF‑SOILIN also work with solids?
- How many soil samples do I need to define in RF-SOILIN to obtain realistic results?
- Is it possible to calculate and design "temporary structures"? What do I need for this?
- How is an inflatable object simulated in RFEM?
- I design timber components. The deformations of load combinations deviate from the manual calculation exactly by the factor of the material partial safety factor. Why?
- I often edit the reinforcement provided by the program. Adjusting the reinforcement by using coordinates takes much effort and time if having several beams in the model. Is there any way to speed up the reinforcement editing?
