Optimizing Lateral-Torsional Bracing
Tips & Tricks
The RX‑TIMBER stand‑alone program offers you the option to optimize the lateral-torsional bracing. With this selection, the program iteratively determines the required minimum length of the lateral-torsional bracing.
The lateral-torsional buckling length in the fire resistance design can be applied identically to the according length in the ultimate limit state design. Alternatively, you can also apply the entire length of the beam. Thus, the program considers a failure of the lateral‑torsional bracing in case of fire.
