Nodal Release

Tips & Tricks

Sometimes, it is necessary to consider that some beams lie for example only loose on each other. In RFEM 5, you can easily meet this condition with a Nodal Release. For this, you need to define a release with the desired release condition on the relevant node in the Nodal Release dialog box.

The example shown in Figure corresponds to this with a shear force release with a property of being fixed and Vz positive. With a lifting load follows the decoupling of both members as a result.
