For designing glass in the RF‑GLASS add‑on module, you can use one of two calculation methods: a 2D or a 3D calculation. The main difference of these design options is the automatic modeling of the layers in a temporary model. In a 2D calculation, each layer is generated as a surface element (plate theory), in a 3D calculation as a solid. Depending on the selected layer composition, you can either select an option or will find it preselected by the program.
- Which stresses are most important for glass design consideration when using RF-GLASS?
- I would like to design a glass pane with temperature loads. In this case, a message appears saying that the load case includes the "temperature" surface loads types that are not transferred to the created temporary model. How can I consider the temperature loads?
- Is it possible to design a spherically curved glass pane in RF‑GLASS?
- Are there any programs or add-on modules specially developed for glass structures?
- When calculating a curved surface in RF‑GLASS, I get a message saying that the surface has more than 4 boundary lines and thus no layered FE mesh can be used. How can I avoid this message?
- Which method of analysis is used for insulating glass?
- Is it possible to design insulating glass using the RF-GLASS add-on module?
- Does the activation of the partial safety factor GammaM have an effect on the calculation in RF‑GLASS?
- How are surfaces defined correctly in the main window of RFEM with the layer composition? So far, I have only found the layer composition defined in the RF‑GLASS add‑on module.
- Is it possible to change the factor kc by user-defined settings?
