Preloaded Bolts for Steel Joints
In the Steel Joints add-on, you have this option to consider the preloaded bolts in the calculation of all components.
You can easily activate the prestress using the check box in the bolt parameters, and it has an impact on the stress-strain analysis as well as the stiffness analysis.
The three types of moment frames (Ordinary, Intermediate, Special) are available in the Steel Design add-on of RFEM 6. The seismic design result according to AISC 341-16 is categorized into two sections: member requirements and connection requirements.
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.
With the RFEM Steel Joints add-on, you can analyze steel connections using an FE model.
