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


Cover 300x404

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 L-Torque input for the Eurocode similar to how it is done in the AISC 13th/14th Editions. The input for L-Torque length is entered in the Members spreadsheet or the double-click dialog for the member.

The Detail Report shows the torque length separate from the other lengths for EN1993-1-1:2014.
