Calculation RFEM RF-GLASS Glass Structures & Facades

Can the activation of the partial safety factor GammaM affect the calculation in RF-Glass?


Yes, because a different GammaM factor according to DIN18008 is applied for the determination of the allowable limit stress for different glasses, it is also stored in our material library. However, the consequence is that by activating this option, the stiffness of the system is reduced by this factor.
Especially when calculating solid loads (climatic loads), the reduced stiffness of the system also affects the calculated stresses and deformations.
