Splice FEA

Capacity of a typical splice used in steel trusses was modelled in RFEM and analyzed for tension. Complete splice assembly consisting of RHS steel tubes, steel plates, bolt and welds between SHS and the plates was modelled using shell elements.

RFEM Advantage:

 Easy to user interface and editing tools along with handy options for curved and planar surfaces.

 Seamless intersection of surfaces including weld.

 Trouble-free meshing of different sufaces including finer mesh generation in needed regions.

 On screen display of colored stress maps showing regions of yielding.
