RIB: New structural analysis software for precast and pipeline construction
NEW RIB Software SOLUTIONS
STUTTGART, 30. January 2018. With the new program application for precast girders, the series of RIB software solutions with intuitive user guidance and economical dimensioning is continued. The new FERMO program allows direct access to the design of reinforced concrete and prestressed prestressed bed girders, optionally with in-situ concrete supplement for building and bridge construction.
Depending on requirements, both entry sockets can be extended by additional modules for verification of tilting stability and fatigue as well as for subsequent, single-stage or two-stage prestressing. Further extension options for building construction and bridge construction allow the corresponding extension to the full version. The configuration of the program environment, the functionality and the result output for preliminary dimensioning, short, long and detail lists ensure that the program always remains clear and efficient. FERMO will be available from the 2nd quarter of 2018.
In addition to the adaptations to the guideline DWA-A 127, version 18 of the ROHR program has been extended by the current extension for the design of flow floors. Liquid soils can be used advantageously in earthworks, civil engineering and road construction when it comes to filling pipe trenches in a self-compacting and time-saving manner and keeping settlement to a minimum.
In addition to the extension of the load and calculation approaches for temporarily flowable, self-compacting backfilling materials (ZFSV), new verifications for the design of the pipes were also introduced. This also includes the verification of the flowability and the segregation tendency of the flow soil as well as the verification of self-compaction and a possible re-excavation. Product Manager Stefan Kimmich: "Various manufacturers are now offering flowable backfill materials with BÜV quality monitoring certificates. It is to be expected that with the release of the new DWA-A 127, this new building material technology will continue to assert itself."
