Eurocode C1 Factor for Lateral Torsional Buckling

Eurocode lateral torsional buckling capacity is calculated per equations in Annex F in the ENV 1993-1-1:1992. This calculation uses variables C1, C2 and C3. Since there is no generic formula in the Eurocode to calculate the moment gradient factor, C1, RISA will use the widely accepted López, Yong...

Eurocode Steel Design According to EN1993-1-1:2014 now Available

You can now set the L-Torque length for the EN1993-1-1:2014 code in RISA-3D and RISAFloor. In previous versions of the Eurocode, RISAFloor and RISA-3D used the full member length as the torque length when calculating torsional buckling. Now, per EN1993-1-1:2014 Section 13.3.2, we’ve added the...
