  1. Figure 01 - Wind Zones of Germany

    Wind Load on Monopitch and Duopitch Roofs in Germany

    In Germany, DIN EN 1991-1-4 with the National Annex DIN EN 1991-1-4/NA regulates the wind loads. The standard applies to civil engineering works up to an altitude of 300 m.
  2. Figure 01 - Snow Load Zones of Germany

    Snow Load on Monopitch and Duopitch Roofs

    In Germany, DIN EN 1991-1-3 with the National Annex DIN EN 1991-1-3/NA regulates the snow loads. The standard applies to civil engineering works at an altitude of up to 1,500 m above sea level.
  3. 1 - Vibration Design (Source: [3])

    Vibration Design of Cross-Laminated Timber Plates

    For wide-span ceilings, the vibration design of cross‑laminated timber plates is often governing. The advantage of the lighter material of timber over concrete turns into a disadvantage because a high mass material is advantageous for a low natural frequency.

    Optimizing Lateral-Torsional Bracing

    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.

    Opening RX-TIMBER Model in RFEM/RSTAB

    To open an RX‑TIMBER model in RFEM 5 or RSTAB 8, select the file type ‘All Files(*.*)’. You can use the RX‑TIMBER model in RFEM or RSTAB with all loads and other data to determine, for example, more precisely the effective length of an unsymmetrical frame in RF‑STABILITY or RSBUCK.
