RF-/TIMBER SANS | 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 and 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 flexible analysis of the selected members, sets of members, and actions as well as for the individual stability analysis. Parameters relevant for design such as load duration in case of fire, member slendernesses, and limit deflection can be freely adjusted.
