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.
The cross-section resistance design analyzes tension and compression along the grain, bending, bending and tension/compression as well as the strength in shear due to shear force.
The design of structural components at risk of buckling or lateral-torsional buckling is performed according to the Equivalent Member Method and considers the systematic axial compression, bending with and without compressive force as well as bending and tension. Deflection of inner spans and cantilevers is compared to the maximal allowable deflection.
Separate design cases allow for a flexible and stability analysis of members, sets of members, and loads.
Design-relevant parameters such as the stability analysis type, member slendernesses, and limit deflections can be freely adjusted.
- I have a question about the results of the serviceability limit state design: How is the increment of the dead load by the factor 1.8 and the imposed load by 1.48 explained in the result combinations for the SLS design?
- Which Dlubal Software programs can I use to calculate and design timber structures?
- Windows Defender does not allow me to install RX‑TIMBER. Is it possible to get around this?
- How can I load the authorization file (AUTHOR.INI) in the RX‑TIMBER module?
- How can I change the language in the RX‑TIMBER add-on module?
- Is it possible to open the RX‑TIMBER files in RFEM and RSTAB?
- The dimensioning in the graphical display in the RX‑TIMBER printout report is very confusing, depending on a structure. Is is possible to optimize it?
- Where is the consequences class defined in RX‑TIMBER?
- Can I use RFEM to calculate a log house three-dimensionally?
- How do I display some results of all load cases in the printout report, but other results of the selected load cases only?
