RSA – not only for civil engineers!!

As we all know „Autodesk Robot Structural Analysis” is a powerful and very useful tool of civil engineers. Thanks to his tools and very intuitive interface even a beginner can use it. But as I will present RSA can be useful not only for civil engineer.

Thanks to possibilities of checking and studying stresses, and others important results, RSA can be use also in other domain of engineering.

An example from live.

Calculation of steel beam which is a part of whole crane system.

Presented beam is a part of hole crane structure,  it is not a typical civil engineering element. On the top plate, we have two moving loads. Loads are representing wheels of main crane part.

Thanks to possibility of study stresses in element we are able to check if adopted solution of beam is correct. If shape of element behave correctly at a given load. By using „Maps of stresses” , in a very easy way we are able to see whether the boundaries of stresses are not exceeded.

Not only stresses in element can be study. RSA is giving to us a possibility of checking displacements. Results which are very important in structures, where all tolerances should be quite small.

By selecting the worse position of forces,  we can see in what way our beam is behaving. How big is displacement.

By checking the displacement, we will know if  tolerances are within acceptable limits.

On that small example we see that „Robot Structural Analysis„, can be use with great success in others engineering domains.
