Extended Display of Strains in RFEM
Display extended strains of members, surfaces and solids (e.g. important principal strains, equivalent total strains, etc.) in the Project Navigator - Results in RFEM as well as in Table 4.0.
For example, you can display governing plastic strains when performing the plastic design of connections with surface elements.
Designing rigid end plate connections is difficult for four-row connection geometries and multi-axis bending stresses because there are no official design methods.
Depending on stiffness, mass, and damping, structures react differently to wind action.
- How can I model and design general bolted connections with the surface and solid elements in RFEM?
- How can I model a coupling of superimposed surfaces that only borders on one line?
- Why is no support force displayed even though I have bedded the member?
Is it possible to change the font size of dimensions?
- I would like to apply only to a part of the surface a rectangular load. How to do it?
Which units are specified in the result display of the support reactions (kN or kN/m)? A note about this is missing in the graphic.
In the case that the support reactions are given in kN/m, for which distance does the value apply?
- I design a cross-section created in the SHAPE‑THIN program by using the RF‑STEEL EC3 add-on module, but the program shows the error message "ER006 Invalid type of c/t-part for cross-section of type General." What can I do?
- I would like to calculate a multi-span beam. Is it possible to automatically apply imposed loads by span (for the design of the largest supporting moment and moment in the span)?
Is it possible to specify shrinkage effects as loads?
How the shear deformation of a member can be taken into account?
