  1. Window 1.5 Effective Lengths - Members

    Fire Resistance Design According to DIN EN 1993-1-2

    The fire resistance design can be performed according to EN 1993-1-2 in RF-/STEEL EC3. The design is carried out according to the simplified calculation method for the ultimate limit state. Claddings with different physical properties can be selected as fire protection measures. You can select the standard temperature-time curve, the external fire curve, and the hydrocarbon curve to determine the gas temperature.

    Influence of the Parameters for Lateral-Torsional Buckling on the Design in RF-/STEEL EC3

    The input windows in RF-/STEEL EC3 distinguish between the flexural and lateral-torsional buckling analysis. In the following, an example will show the parameters for lateral-torsional buckling.

    Comparing Critical Load Factors for Lateral-Torsional Buckling According to Different Methods and Modules

    The critical factor for lateral-torsional buckling or the critical buckling moment of a single-span beam will be compared according to different stability analysis methods.

    Horizontal Craneway Loads from Skewing of Bridge Cranes

    For crane runways with large spans, the horizontal load from skewing is often relevant for the design. This article describes the origin of these forces and the correct input in CRANEWAY. The practical implementation and the theoretical background are discussed.

    Application of Eccentricities in RF-CONCRETE Columns

    When calculating the internal forces for the buckling analysis with the method based on nominal curvature in RF-CONCRETE Columns, the required eccentricities have to be determined.

    Entering Lateral Supports and Their Effects in RF-/STEEL EC3

    When designing steel columns or steel beams, it is usually necessary to carry out cross-section and stability analyses. In most cases, cross-section design can be carried out without giving further details; the stability design, however, needs additional user-defined specifications. To a certain extent, the member is cut out from the structure and therefore, the support conditions have to be specified. This is particularly important to determine the ideal critical moment for lateral torsional buckling Mcr. In addition, the correct effective lengths Lcr have to be defined. They are necessary for the internal calculation of the slenderness ratios.

    Stability Analysis of Steel Column According to EN 1993-1-1

    This article is about the stability analysis of a steel column with axial compression according to EN 1993-1-1 Clause 6.3.1. Additionally, a variation study is carried out aiming at steel optimization.
  8. Determination of the Degrees of Restraint of the Column Ends Taking Into Acount the Stiffness of the Connecting Beam

    Determination of Effective Lengths in RF-/CONCRETE Columns

    With RF-/CONCRETE Columns, it is possible to determine effective lengths for columns automatically. This article describes which entries are necessary and how the calculation of the effective lengths is carried out.

    Warping Torsion Analysis According to AISC Design Guide 9

    The design of a torsional loaded beam according to AISC Design Guide 9 will be shown based on a verification example. The design will be performed with the RF-STEEL AISC add-on module and the RF-STEEL Warping Torsion module extension with 7 degrees of freedom.

    Stiffened Buckling Panels According to EN 1993-1-5, Section 4.5

    In SHAPE-THIN, it is possible to perform the calculation of stiffened buckling panels according to Section 4.5 of EN 1993-1-5. For stiffened buckling panels, the effective surfaces due to local buckling of the single panels in the plate and in the stiffeners as well as the effective surfaces from the entire panel buckling of the stiffened entire panel have to be considered.
