RF-/TIMBER Pro | Design
The cross-section resistance design analyzes tension and compression along the grain, bending, bending and tension/compression as well as the strength in shear due to shear force with and without torsion. Designs proceed at the level of design stress values.
The design of structural components at risk of buckling or lateral buckling is performed according to the Equivalent Member Method and considers the systematic axial compression, bending with and without compressive force as well as bending and tension. Deflection of inner spans and cantilevers is determined in characteristic and quasi-permanent design situations.
Separate design cases allow for a flexible and stability analysis of members, sets of members, and loads. In the case of tapered members, the cut-to-grain angle is considered in the bending tension and bending compression area. If there is a ridge defined, the module performs the ridge design additionally.
