Since the release of RFEM 5, the ‘Result Beam’ member type has been available. The result beam is a virtual member that does not have any stiffness nor require any support. It can be used in various situations in order to integrate the results from members, surfaces, and solids, and to display them as member internal forces.
The material model Orthotropic Masonry 2D is an elastoplastic model that additionally allows softening of the material, which can be different in the local x- and y-direction of a surface. The material model is suitable for (unreinforced) masonry walls with in-plane loads.
- I have recently purchased RSTAB with the CONCRETE add-on module. Can I use it to perform the stability analysis of reinforced concrete columns?
- Regarding a nonlinear analysis of reinforced concrete, is there any feature in the program that increases the load until failure? Or is there any way how to describe the load increment until failure?
- What is the effect of the settings "Approach of pure tension restraint," "Approach of bending restraint," or "Depending on the defined load" for the determination of the minimum reinforcement As,min due to restraint?
- Is it possible to use high-strength reinforcement or high-strength reinforcing steel in the RF‑CONCRETE add-on modules?
- Is the longitudinal reinforcement defined in RF‑CONCRETE Surfaces considered when determining internal forces in RFEM?
- Is it possible to enter and design a reinforced concrete surface with a reinforcement layer in the center of the surface?
- Is it also possible to perform a deformation analysis in cracked state for a 2D model in RF‑CONCRETE Surfaces?
- I obtain different results when comparing the deformation analysis in the RF‑CONCRETE add-on modules and another calculation program. What could be the reason for this?
- Why is the button of "Design Details" not active in RF‑CONCRETE Surfaces?
- When converting from the manual definition of reinforcement areas to the automatic arrangement of reinforcement according to Window 1.4, the result of the deformation calculation differs, although the basic reinforcement has not been modified. What is the reason for this change?
