Determining Effective Lengths in RFEM 6

The stability checks for the equivalent member design according to EN 1993-1-1, AISC 360, CSA S16, and other international standards require consideration of the design length (i.e., the effective length of the members). In RFEM 6, it is possible to determine the effective length manually by assigning nodal supports and effective length factors or, on the other hand, by importing it from the stability analysis.

Model Types in RFEM 6

Structures are three-dimensional in reality; however, they can be simplified and analyzed as 2D or 1D models. The model type has a crucial influence on how the structural components are stressed, and it should be defined prior to modeling and calculation. The model types available in RFEM 6 are shown in Image 1.

Seismic Analysis in RFEM 6

Seismic Analysis in RFEM 6 is possible by using the modal analysis and the response spectrum analysis add-ons. As a matter of fact, the general concept of the earthquake analysis in RFEM 6 is based on the creation of a load case for the modal analysis and the response spectrum analysis, respectively.
