RX-TIMBER Frame | Input
There are various options available for frame modeling. Graphical representations facilitate the geometry input. Modifications are updated automatically. Basic dimensions as well as geometrical data are entered in tables. During the input, the program checks the conditions required for the beam creation (for example lamellas forming a curve) according to the defined standard. The most important geometry parameters are updated and displayed.
You can select the relevant timber grade of the material from the material library. All material grades for glulam, hardwood, poplar and softwood timber specified in EN 1995-1-1 are available. Furthermore, it is possible to generate a strength class with user-defined material properties and thus extend the library. Permanent loads (for example roof structure) can also be entered using the comprehensive and extendable material library.
Generators integrated in RX-TIMBER Frame allow for comfortable generation of various wind and snow load cases. By clicking the information buttons, the map of wind and snow zones for the relevant country is displayed. The corresponding zone can be selected with a double-click. Load cases can be checked graphically. However, it is possible to enter load specifications manually. According to the generated loads, the program automatically creates combinations for the ultimate and serviceability limit state as well as for fire resistance design in the background. The generated combinations can be considered or adjusted by user-defined specifications.
