The material model Orthotropic Masonry 2D is an elastoplastic model that additionally allows softening of the material, which can be different in the local x- and y-direction of a surface. The material model is suitable for (unreinforced) masonry walls with in-plane loads.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
- Are the Dlubal Software programs suitable for the analysis and design of hydraulic steel structures?
- In RF-PUNCH Pro, I get an error message saying that the selected edges of the surface do not converge to a corner. What does it mean? How can I fix the error?
- When determining internal forces in RFEM, I obtain compression axial forces that do not arise in the design internal forces in the design in RF‑CONCRETE Surfaces. Why, what is the reason?
- Regarding a nonlinear analysis of reinforced concrete, is there any feature in the program that increases the load until failure? Or is there any way how to describe the load increment until failure?
- When designing a plate, I get different reinforcements in different load situations with the same bending stress. Why?
- Is it possible to apply the minimum bending moments according to DIN EN 1992‑1‑1 in RF‑PUNCH Pro?
- Is it also possible to designe surfaces with RF‑TENDON?
- Which programs and add-on modules by Dlubal Software are available for reinforced concrete structures?
- Is it possible to design bidirectional ribbed plates, unidirectional ribbed plates, or hollow core slabs in RFEM?
- Is it possible to enter and design a reinforced concrete surface with a reinforcement layer in the center of the surface?
