Member Hinge Locations of Member Eccentricity
Tips & Tricks
When modeling eccentric members with member hinges, RFEM provides an option to assign the hinge to the start or end of the member eccentricity. There is another option for creating and displaying the structural system more precisely in the design.
The settings can be done in the ‘Edit Member Eccentricity’ dialog box. Depending on requirements, you can select a different location for the member end and start. By default, the eccentricity is located on the side of the eccentric member.
