Graphical Representation of RF-/TIMBER SANS Design Results in RFEM | 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.

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 compression force as well as bending and tension. Deflection of inner spans and cantilevers is compared with the maximum allowable deflection.

Separate design cases allow a flexible analysis for selected members, sets of members, and actions, as well as for the individual stability analyses. such as stability analysis, load duration in case of fire, member slendernesses, and limit deflection can be adjusted as desired.
