RF-/PLATE-BUCKLING | Input

Product Feature

Initially, it is necessary to define material data, panel dimensions, and boundary conditions (hinged, built-in, unsupported, hinged-elastic). It is possible to transfer the data from RFEM/RSTAB. Then, boundary stresses can be either defined for each load case manually or imported from RFEM/RSTAB.

Stiffeners are modeled as spatially effective surface elements that are eccentrically connected to the plate. Therefore, it is not necessary to consider the stiffener eccentricities by effective widths. The bending, shear, strain, and St. Venant stiffness of stiffeners as well as the Bredt stiffness of closed stiffeners is determined automatically in a 3D model.
