Short printout of cross -section data
The cross-section programs SHAPE-THIN and SHAPE-MASSIVE are suitable for determining the cross-section properties of common thin-walled or thick-walled sections. These cross -section properties are also available for further analyzes in RSTAB and RFEM.
The cross -section data can be documented not only in the printout report with the usual selection options, but also as a short version.
With the option "Report Summary", the current cross-section graphic as well as the most important input and output data are summarized on one page.

In this article, the adequacy of a 2x4 dimension lumber subject to combined bi-axial bending and axial compression is verified using RF-/TIMBER AWC add-on module. The beam-column properties and loading are based on example E1.8 of AWC Structural Wood Design Examples 2015/2018.
Depending on stiffness, mass, and damping, structures react differently to wind action.
- What is the difference between the dongle drivers of CRANEWAY and RFEM or RSTAB?
- Can I use RFEM to calculate a log house three-dimensionally?
- In the global calculation parameters, the "Exceptional handling" option for members is grayed out and cannot be activated. What is the reason?
- Is it possible to open an RSTAB file in RFEM and the other way round?
- How can I deactivate displaying symbols for the FE mesh refinement?
- After an update of RSTAB, my .rst files, which have been used by another program, are always opened with RSTAB. However, the .rst file does not belong to RSTAB, but to another program. How do I control the association of the file type?
- What does the "Crack formation in the first 28 days" option means?
- How can I determine the controlling internal forces at a node that several members frame into for connection design?
- How can I create a member eccentricity using the COM interface?
- I have recently purchased RSTAB with the CONCRETE add-on module. Can I use it to perform the stability analysis of reinforced concrete columns?
