The material model Orthotropic Masonry 2D is an elastoplastic model that additionally allows softening of the material, which can be different in the local x- and y-direction of a surface. The material model is suitable for (unreinforced) masonry walls with in-plane loads.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
- For line releases, I obtain the resultants in the horizontal direction, which I cannot understand.
- When evaluating the support reactions of a plate supported by line supports, I noticed that the support reaction pz' does not correspond to the shear force and deviates significantly. What is the reason?
- Is it also possible to determine stiffnesses of an existing column instead of a fixed nodal support?
- I just have to calculate an open hall with low roof loads and relatively high wind loads compared to it. In theory, a design of the bottom flange for buckling/toppling would have to be performed. Unfortunately, there is no combination of 1.0 * G +1.5 * W.
- For the foundation design, I need the results (support reactions) of a design situation for 'static equilibrium'. How do I get them?
- How do you enter the values for skin friction and pile tip resistance during member elastics when designing tapered piles in the program?
- I would like to select a material of the masonry type in the material library. Why is the library empty in the Masonry category?
- How do I get the largest column load in my RFEM 3D model?
- How can I get the member end forces to design the connections?
- How can I perform the design of the tension resistance of a smooth column in a smooth bucket column base, that is, the design against pulling out the column?
