FAQ 003442 | I would like to define a line support with ineffective tension and apply the tension force on this line by using a nodal support instead. Why does the line support still receive a tension force?
The effects due to snow load are described in the American standard ASCE/SEI 7-16 and in Eurocode 1, Parts 1 through 3. These standards are implemented in the new RFEM 6 program and the Snow Load Wizard, which serves to facilitate the application of snow loads. In addition to this, the most recent generation of the program allows the construction site to be specified on a digital map, thus allowing the snow load zone to be imported automatically. These data are, in turn, used by the Load Wizard to simulate the effects due to the snow load.
Compared to the RF-/STEEL add-on module (RFEM 5 / RSTAB 8), the following new features have been added to the Stress-Strain Analysis add-on for RFEM 6 / RSTAB 9:
- Treatment of members, surfaces, solids, welds (line welded joints between two and three surfaces with subsequent stress design)
- Output of stresses, stress ratios, stress ranges, and strains
- Limit stress depending on the assigned material or a user-defined input
- Individual specification of the results to be calculated through freely assignable setting types
- Non-modal result details with prepared formula display and additional result display on the cross-section level of members
- Output of the design check formulas used
- Are the models and presentations from Info Day 2019 freely available, and can you send them to me?
- I would like to connect my masonry wall to a reinforced concrete slab. What is the best way to create a line hinge?
- I would like to enter a large spring constant. Is it possible?
- I would like to perform punching design of a floor slab. I have selected nodes for the design, but they are marked as invalid. Where did I make a mistake?
- How can I define an FE mesh refinement in RFEM 6? In RFEM 5, this was available in the Data navigator.
- Is it possible to display the deformation analysis of a surface (limit 0.5‰)?
- Is it possible to design single-layer reinforced surfaces with RFEM 6?
- How is the nonlinearity handled in RSTAB 9?
- How do I perform stability analysis to determine the critical load factor in RFEM 6?
- How can I create a member hinge with a "diagram" using the COM interface?
