The current state of development of finite element analysis software and computer technology allows the calculation of more complex structures. With increasing frequency, the FE calculation is performed on the entire model. In this context, certain practical construction problems may appear. One of these problems is the consideration of a construction process in the model.
- The calculation of my model results in unrealistically high stresses at many locations. What could be the reason for this?
- Is it also possible to enter the temperature for a surface in the XZ plane by using the height (variable in Z)?
- In the case of the "Initial strain from other LC/CO" feature, I cannot retrace internal forces. How is this function mapped internally?
- Which analysis is used in RF‑STAGES or STAGES to calculate temporary loads and the generated combinations?
- How is it possible to enter the values for skin friction and pile end resistance during displaying of bored piles when designing member elastic foundations in the program?
- Can I use surface releases to separate two overlapping surfaces?
- Where can I find the materials for the corresponding National Annexes in RFEM 6 and RSTAB 9?
- I have a roof structure resting on a steel column that runs to the foundations. The column runs through a perimeter wall that supports the false ceiling. A considerable part of the load from the roof is transferred to the wall. I want the steel column to carry all the vertical loads from the roof. How can I do it?
- Are the models and presentations from Info Day 2018 freely available, and can you send them to me?
- In RF‑CONCRETE Surfaces, I obtain a high amount of reinforcement in relation to a lever arm that is almost zero. How is such a small lever arm of internal forces created?
