Useful Program Features
The Knowledge Base includes technical articles on a wide array of structural analysis and design topics.
These articles are intended to help you navigate through the Dlubal programs, learn efficient tips and tricks, and provide further insight into the program features.
Why Dlubal Software?
The following article describes designing a two-span beam subjected to bending by means of the RF-/STEEL EC3 add-on module according to EN 1993-1-1. The global stability failure will be excluded due to sufficient stabilizing measures.
The cross-section class of a two-span beam will be designed in the following. In addition, the necessary cross-section designs will be performed. The global stability failure will be excluded due to sufficient stabilizing measures.
Printout reports created in RFEM and RSTAB can be transferred to VCmaster using a direct interface and further processed there. VCmaster (formerly BauText) is a word processing program for engineers. Calculations, drawings, photos and documents from various sources can be easily compiled, managed and used again with VCmaster.
The 3D PDF functionality allows you to display three-dimensional models from RFEM or RSTAB in a 3D PDF.
In the case of a post-critical failure, a substantial change in the geometry of a structure occurs. After reaching the instability of the equilibrium, a stable, strong position is reached again. The post-critical analysis requires an experimental approach. It is necessary to manually load the structure in increments step by step.
The ‘Page and Sheet Numbering’ dialog box allows you to add a prefix to the numbering of the pages and sheets. It can be an abbreviation which specifies by chapter all model data in the numbering, for example with ‘MO’.
By clicking ‘Options’ → ‘Display Properties’ → ‘Edit’, you can change and save display settings for printout reports and your screen. For example, you can set individual colours for cross‑sections.
The ‘Measure’ function available in the ‘Tools’ menu allows you to measure distances and angles.
The layout of a printout report can be adjusted by changing fonts, font colors, page margins, and table shading.
