Wind Simulation & Wind Load Generation

With the stand-alone program RWIND Simulation, wind flows around simple or complex structures can be simulated by means of a digital wind tunnel.

The generated wind loads acting on these objects can be imported to RFEM or RSTAB.

  • Activation of the Camera Fly Mode in RFEM

    Camera Fly Mode

    With the view option Camera Fly Mode, you can fly through your RFEM and RSTAB structure. Control the direction and speed of the flight with your keyboard. Additionally, you can save the flight through your structure as a video.

  • Material Model Orthotropic Masonry 2D

    Material Model Orthotropic Masonry 2D

    The material model Orthotropic Masonry 2D is an elastoplastic model that additionally allows softening of the material, which can be different in the local x- and y-direction of a surface. The material model is suitable for (unreinforced) masonry walls with in-plane loads.

  • Effective Cross-Section of a Cold-Formed Z-Section in SHAPE-THIN 9

    SHAPE-THIN | Cold-Formed Sections

    SHAPE-THIN determines the effective cross-sections according to EN 1993-1-3 and EN 1993-1-5 for cold-formed sections. You can optionally check the geometric conditions for the applicability of the standard specified in EN 1993‑1‑3, Section 5.2.

    The effects of local plate buckling are considered according to the method of reduced widths and the possible buckling of stiffeners (instability) is considered for stiffened sections according to EN 1993-1-3, Section 5.5.

    As an option, you can perform an iterative calculation to optimize the effective cross-section.

    You can display the effective cross-sections graphically.

    Read more about designing cold-formed sections with SHAPE-THIN and RF-/STEEL Cold-Formed Sections in this technical article: Design of a Thin-Walled, Cold-Formed C-Section According to EN 1993-1-3.

  • Activating Designs for Cold-Formed Sections in RF-/STEEL EC3

    RF-/STEEL Cold-Formed Sections | Input

    New

    001405

    General

    Since RF-/STEEL Cold-Formed Sections is fully integrated in RF-/STEEL EC3, the data is entered in the same way as for the usual design in this module. It is only necessary to select the design option for cold-formed cross-sections in the Details dialog box.

  • Design Results for a Cold-Formed Top-Hat Section in RF-/STEEL EC3

    RF-/STEEL Cold-Formed Sections | Results

    New

    001406

    General

    The design results are displayed in RF-/STEEL EC3 in the usual way.

    Among other results, the corresponding result windows include the effective cross-section properties due to axial force N, bending moment My, bending moment Mz, internal forces, and design summary.
