How can I generate a restraint or a spring for the support in RX‑TIMBER Glued-Laminated Beam?


In addition to the predefined supports "fixed" and "free," RX‑TIMBER Glued-Laminated Beam provides an option to define a restraint by using the "Column" feature. Using the relation of the height, the cross-section and the definition from "Hinged" to "Restrained," the spring stiffnesses are analytically calculated and displayed in the bottom right corner of the window (see Figure 01). These are then taken into account for the calculation. If you want to connect the beam rigidly to the column, you can use this feature.
