Calculates three-dimensional strut-and-tie models used by structural engineers for analysing
The program only uses the equilibrium conditions, thus it is not assuming elastic behaviour.
Fachwerk3D is the spatial version of the program �Fachwerk�. It addresses to structural engineers who are involved with analysing and designing reinforced concrete structures. It intends to simplify the application of discontinuous stress fields and strut-and-tie models.
The program calculates strut-and-tie models (truss models). It only uses the equilibrium conditions. Thus, unlike common programs, it is not assuming elastic behaviour.
If the system is statically indeterminate, the program calculates the forces of the members that are determinate anyway. You can assign forces to the remaining members.
If you assign more forces to members than needed to accomplish a statically determinate system, the program will indicate that the system is inconsistent (except equilibrium is fulfilled anyway).
