    • Belgium NBN EN 1993-1-5/NA:2011-03 (Belgium)
    • Cyprus CYS EN 1993-1-5/NA:2009-03 (Cyprus)
    •  CSN EN 1993-1-5/NA:2008-07 (Czech Republic)
    •  SFS EN 1993-1-5/NA:2006 (Finland)
    •  DIN EN 1993-1-5/NA:2010-12 (Germany)
    •  UNI EN 1993-1-5/NA:2011-02 (Italy)
    •  NEN EN 1993-1-5/NA:2011-04 (Netherlands)
    •  NS EN 1993-1-5/NA:2009-06 (Norway)
    In addition to the National Annexes listed above, you can also define a specific NA, applying user-defined limit values and parameters.
  • Import of all relevant internal forces from RFEM/RSTAB by selecting numbers of members and buckling panels with determination of governing boundary stresses
  • Summary of stresses in load cases with determination of governing load
  • Separate materials for stiffener and plate
  • Import of stiffeners from an extensive library (flat plate and bulb flat steel, angle, T-section, channel, and trapezoidal sheeting)
  • Determination of effective widths according to EN 1993-1-5 (Table 4.1 or 4.2) or DIN 18800, Part 3, Eq. (4)
  • Optional calculation of critical local buckling stresses by analytical formulas of annexes A.1, A.2, A.3 of EC 3 or by means of FEA calculation
  • Designs (stress, deformation, torsional buckling) of longitudinal and transverse stiffeners
  • Optional consideration of buckling effects according to DIN 18800, Part 3, Eq. (13)
  • Photo-realistic representation (3D rendering) of buckling panel including stiffeners, stress conditions, and buckling modes with animation
  • Documentation of all input data and results in a verifiable printout report
