Graphical Representation of RF-/TIMBER SANS Design Results in RFEM | 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 a cross-section selected in RFEM/RSTAB, or a modified cross-section. Then, you can define the load duration classes, the moisture service conditions, and timber treatment.

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 the beam type.

For fire resistance design, you can define the charring sides of a member or set of members.
