How can I generate a restraint or spring for the support in RX-TIMBER BSH?

Answer

In addition to the predefined supports "fixed" and "free", you can define a restraint in the RX-TIMBER BSH using the "Column" function. Spring stiffnesses are calculated analytically and displayed in the bottom right corner of the window (see Figure 1), whereby the relationships referring to height, cross-section and the definition going from "Hinged" to "Restrained" is used. These are considered for the later calculation. If you want to connect the beam rigidly to the column, you can make use of this function.
