AnswerThe increase of the crack factor kcr still has to be done manually because the program does not know where the end of the grain is defined. To do this, divide the member by 1.5 m from the end of the grain so that the affected areas can be designed as a separate member (see Figure 01).Two design cases are now required (File → New Case ...). In case 1, members within the 1.5 m are selected for the design. In case 2, it is necessary to select the members where the 30% needs to be considered. Then, in case 2, the kcr value is adjusted manually in the settings for the National Annex. Thus, a kcr of 0.65 results for C24, which is entered as shown in Figure 02. The design is carried out this way with an increased kcr value.

Wind Simulation & Wind Load Generation
With the stand-alone program RWIND Simulation, wind flows around simple or complex structures can be simulated by means of a digital wind tunnel.
The generated wind loads acting on these objects can be imported to RFEM or RSTAB.
