RF-/STEEL BS | Features

Product Feature

  • Design of tension, compression, bending, shear, and combined internal forces
  • Stability analysis of flexural buckling and lateral-torsional buckling
  • Automatic determination of critical buckling loads and critical buckling moments for general load applications and support conditions by means of a special FEA program (eigenvalue analysis) integrated in the module
  • Optional application of discrete lateral supports to beams
  • Automatic cross‑section classification
  • Deformation analysis (serviceability)
  • Cross‑section optimization
  • Wide range of cross-sections available, for example rolled I‑sections, C‑sections, rectangular hollow sections, angles, double angles (arrangement with flange on flange) and T‑sections Welded sections: I‑shaped (symmetrical and asymmetrical about major axis), channel sections (symmetrical about major axis), rectangular hollow sections (symmetrical and asymmetrical about major axis), angles, round pipes and round bars
  • Clearly arranged result tables
  • Detailed result documentation including references to design equations of the standard used
  • Various filter and sorting options of results including result lists by member, cross‑section, x‑location, or by load cases, load and result combinations
  • Result table of member slenderness and governing internal forces
  • Parts list with weight and solid specifications
  • Seamless integration in RFEM/RSTAB
  • Metric and imperial units
