RF-/TIMBER SANS | Input
After opening the add‑on module, it is necessary to select the members/sets of members, load cases, load or result combinations for the ultimate limit state, serviceability limit state and fire resistance design. The materials from RFEM/RSTAB are preset and can be adjusted in RF‑/TIMBER SANS. Material properties listed in the respective standard are included in the material library.
When checking the cross‑sections, you can specify whether to consider the cross‑section selected in RFEM/RSTAB or a modified cross‑section in the design. After the cross‑section check, you can define the load duration classes (LDC), moisture conditions and timber protection.
The deformation analysis requires the reference lengths of the relevant members and sets of members. Furthermore, you can define a specific direction of deflection, precamber and beam type.
For fire resistance design, it is possible to define charring sides by member or set of members.
