In this article, the adequacy of a 2x4 dimension lumber subject to combined bi-axial bending and axial compression is verified using RF-/TIMBER AWC add-on module. The beam-column properties and loading are based on example E1.8 of AWC Structural Wood Design Examples 2015/2018.
Determination of the degree of restraint of the column ends taking into account the stiffness of the connected beams
Depending on stiffness, mass, and damping, structures react differently to wind action.
- For the design, I can only select the surrounding reinforcement for a rectangular cross-section. Why?
- What is the best way to consider steel fiber concrete in the structural analysis software RFEM?
- I have recently purchased RSTAB with the CONCRETE add-on module. Can I use it to perform the stability analysis of reinforced concrete columns?
- How do I display some results of all load cases in the printout report, but other results of the selected load cases only?
- Why do RF‑CONCRETE Members or CONCRETE determine a significantly higher provided reinforcement than the required reinforcement?
- What is the critical load factor and how is it possible to determine it?
- The online service "Snow Load, Wind Speed, and Seismic Load Maps" displays the snow load zones 1*, 1a*, 2*, and 3* for Germany. Where are these snow load zones defined?
- Does it make any difference for the calculation of a load combination if I set the calculation for the included load case according to the geometrically linear analysis or the second-order analysis?
- I am trying to design an open, unsymmetric aluminum cross-section in RF‑/ALUMINUM and I am get the warning "Non-designable - 1022) General cross-section — Check of stability is not available." What is the reason?
- Why are the equivalent member designs grayed out in the Stability tab when activating the plastic designs by using the partial internal force method (RF‑/STEEL Plasticity)?
