In RF‑/JOINTS Steel - DSTV, I get the notes "Wrong geometry" and "Invalid material." Which entries do I have to adjust?

Answer

The connections in the RF‑/JOINTS Steel - DSTV module are typical steel connections for the transmission or introduction of moments and shear forces.

If the note "Wrong geometry" appears, check whether the connection geometry meets the requirements of the typified connections. This can be also caused by inconsistencies in the model input. In the example, a small deviation in the coordinates of the Y‑axis leads to the incorrect model geometry.


If the message "Invalid material" appears, check whether the material is provided for the typified connection. For cross-sections and metal sheets, you can select the material S 235 or S 355 for these connections.
