Shear Force Reduction
For design supports, you can take into account a shear force reduction. This allows you to perform the shear design with the governing shear force at a distance of the beam height from the support edge.
Consideration of p-δ Second-Order Effects in RFEM 6 and RSTAB 9
- Why does the load wizard "Member Load from Area Load" give unnecessary concentrated loads?
- How do I define a member as a cantilever and not as supported at both ends for serviceability or deflection design?
- Where can find the option to hide the defined types (for example, design supports or effective lengths)?
The structural analysis program RFEM 6 is the basis of a modular software system. The main program RFEM 6 is used to define structures, materials, and loads of planar and spatial structural systems consisting of plates, walls, shells, and members. The program can also design combined structures as well as solid and contact elements.
The structural frame & truss analysis and design program RSTAB 9 contains a similar range of functions as the FEA software RFEM, paying special attention to frames and trusses. Therefore, it is very easy to use and for many years, it has been the best choice for the structural analysis of beam structures consisting of steel, concrete, timber, aluminum, and other materials.
