Arbitrary point load distributions often occur in the load definition of member structures.
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.
- How can I connect surfaces to other surfaces or members in a hinged/semi-rigid way?
- Can I use surface releases to separate two overlapping surfaces?
- Are the effective length coefficients in the add-on modules for the aluminum and steel design automatically determined from the model or do I have to make adjustments?
Which units are specified in the result display of the support reactions (kN or kN/m)? A note about this is missing in the graphic.
In the case that the support reactions are given in kN/m, for which distance does the value apply?
- I design a cross-section created in the SHAPE‑THIN program by using the RF‑STEEL EC3 add-on module, but the program shows the error message "ER006 Invalid type of c/t-part for cross-section of type General." What can I do?
Is it possible to specify shrinkage effects as loads?
Is it possible to calculate American steel cross-sections?
- Where do I find the setting to specify the entered structural component as a "wall" or "slab"?
- The four plates, identically loaded, show different negative moments at the point of support. Is this a mistake?
- How can I quickly model a chimney with reinforcement rings and stiffeners?
