RF-/JOINTS Steel - Tower Add-on Module for RFEM/RSTAB | Hinged Connections of Lattice Towers According to EC 3
RF-/TOWER Effective Lengths Add-on Module for RFEM/RSTAB | Determination of Effective Lengths for Lattice Towers
For designs of tension stress, compression, bending stress, and shear force resistance, the maximum resistance design values are compared with the action design values. If structural components are subjected to both bending and compression at the same time, the RF-/TOWER Design add-on module performs an interaction. You can determine the factors according to Method 1 (Annex A) or Method 2 (Annex B).
For the flexural buckling design, it is not necessary to enter the slenderness ratio or the elastic critical buckling load of the governing buckling case. The module automatically performs calculation of all required factors for the bending stress design value. RF-/TOWER Design determines the effective critical moment for lateral-torsional buckling for each member on every x-location of the cross-section.
- How do I apply wind load on members of open structures?
- Is it also possible to use RF‑/TOWER Loading without the other TOWER add-on modules?
- When calculating a cable using the STEEL EC3 add‑on module, there is the error message "Incorrect characteristic stresses for material No. 1! Please correct this in Table 1.2."
- How can I create a drilled beam in RFEM?
- In connection with a calculation according to the large deformation analysis, I get significantly smaller deformations than for a calculation according to the linear static or second-order analysis. How is this possible?
