RX-TIMBER Purlin | Design
The design analyzes tension and compression along the grain, bending, bending and tension or compression as well as shear due to shear force with and without torsion. The analyses are performed at the level of stress design values. For the design of structural components with a risk for buckling and lateral buckling, the program considers axial compression, bending with and without compressive force as well as bending and tension.
The deflection in the characteristic and quasi-permanent design situations is determined for inner spans and cantilevers. Separate design cases allow for a flexible analysis of specific actions as well as for individual stability analyses. You can define the design type to be performed in the Control Parameters window.
