Wind Simulation & Wind Load Generation
With the stand -alone program RWIND Simulation, you can simulate wind flows around simple or complex structures by means of a digital wind tunnel.
The generated wind loads acting on these objects can be imported to RFEM or RSTAB.
In this article, the adequacy of a 2x4 dimension lumber subject to combined bi-axial bending and axial compression is verified using RF-/TIMBER AWC add-on module. The beam-column properties and loading are based on example E1.8 of AWC Structural Wood Design Examples 2015/2018.
The add-on modules for the design of member components according to national, European and international standards display design results in tables as well as graphically as a diagram on the framework.
Temporary structures such as scaffolding or props are versatile structures that can be adapted very well to different geometric conditions.
As an aid for structural calculations of planar components, RFEM provides the option to display the FE mesh quality. When you perform an internal check of the generated finite elements for defined criteria,
When modeling and designing glass panes in RF‑GLASS, you have two different options for the FE mesh settings.
For line supports, there is an option to graphically display the additional information for all directions.
In RFEM and RSTAB, there are various options to renumber the individual structural elements such as nodes, lines, members, surfaces or solids. There are two options available for the renumbering: singly and automatically.
To ensure a well‑arranged structure of data in tables, the load data is automatically organized in RFEM and RSTAB.
In order to apply loads that are variable over height and perimeter to rotationally symmetrical objects, there is the free variable load in RFEM.
In RFEM, you can create screw lines using the line of type “Trajectory”. For this, you need a center line / guide line about which the line can be modeled, as well as a start and end point. Then, you can create a line of type Trajectory between the start and end point, which initially appears as a straight line.
