The cross-section resistance design analyzes tension and compression along the grain, bending, bending and tension/compression as well as the strength in shear due to shear force.
The design of structural components at risk of buckling or lateral-torsional buckling is performed according to the Equivalent Member Method and considers the systematic axial compression, bending with and without compressive force as well as bending and tension. Deflection of inner spans and cantilevers is compared to the maximal allowable deflection.
Separate design cases allow for a flexible and stability analysis of members, sets of members, and loads.
Design-relevant parameters such as the stability analysis type, member slendernesses, and limit deflections can be freely adjusted.
- How can I perform a stability analysis for a tapered member?
- How can I model a timber panel wall with RFEM?
- Can I design laminated veneer lumber with RFEM/RSTAB?
- Is it possible to perform fire resistance design of cross-laminated timber panels in RF‑LAMINATE?
- Is it possible to perform a detailed analysis of connections, supports, or reinforcements of cross‑laminated timber plates in RF‑LAMINATE?
- How can I consider the flexibility of a continuous beam with slotted dowel connections?
- Does the RF‑LAMINATE program consider the shear correction factor for cross-laminated timber plates?
- How can I create a curved or arched section?
- How are the signs for the release results of a line release and line hinges interpreted?
- After the design with RF‑/TIMBER Pro, I optimized a cross-section. Why is the utilization of the optimized cross-section exceeded now?
