How do I define the add-on module RF- JOINTS Steel - Column Footing z. For example, select a pipe as a shear key?

Answer

When using a shear key, you can select a cross-section from the list that is already available in the RFEM / RSTAB model. For example, if you want to use a pipe for shear transfer, it must already have been created as a cross-section in the RSTAB / RFEM model. Use the "Import Cross-Section from Library" button to define another cross-section.

For the shear-type plug, you can define your own material by using the "Info About Material" button (unless you activate the Use column material also for other connectors check box in the 1.1 General Data window). Thus, the materials used for the column, base plate, and shear key do not have to be identical. The length of the shear key should be defined in the input field.
