Digital trends, such as Building Information Modeling (BIM) or new options for creating realistic visualized models, are based on 3D models. But do 3D models really have an advantage or are we just following a trend? The following presents some arguments for working in 3D models.
Depending on stiffness, mass, and damping, structures react differently to wind action.
- 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?
- How can I consider holes in steel members?
- How can I model a timber-concrete composite floor?
Is it possible to model and design tapered castellated beams in RF-STEEL AISC?
- I saw somewhere that it is possible to set the terrain level for a model in RWIND (eg for a model with a basement). Unfortunately, I can't find where this is set.
Why are my steel members not being designed for stability in RF-STEEL AISC?
- When should the punching load be determined with the (un)smoothed distribution of the shear forces at the critical perimeter?
- When using the "Import Support Reactions as Load" function, I get the message "No surface has been selected upon which the load is to be applied." What is the reason for this message?
- Are the result values in FE elements averaged or do they refer to the nodal values? Where can I set this?
Stand-alone program for numerical simulations of wind flow around buildings or any other objects. The generated wind loads acting on these objects can be imported into RFEM / RSTAB programs for static and dynamic analysis.
Structural engineering software for finite element analysis (FEA) of planar and spatial structural systems consisting of plates, walls, shells, members (beams), solids and contact elements
