LIMIT 2015 Codes und Normen

LIMIT enables different types of structural strength assessments according to numerous design codes and guidelines.

Currently the following procedures are available:

LIMIT FKM Guideline

FKM-Guideline

The FKM-guideline describes analytical static and fatigue strength assessments procedures of components made of steel, casted iron and aluminum. Base material can be investigated as well as welded structures.

»
LIMIT Eurocode 3 und 9

Eurocode 3 / Eurocode 9

The Eurocodes 3 and 9 (shortform EC) are standardized codes for the design of steel and aluminum structures.

»
LIMIT Normen 13001

DIN 15018

DIN 15018 is well known as „Kranbaunorm“ and has officially been replaced by the EN 13001.

»
LIMIT DVS1612

DVS 1612 / 1608

The DVS guidelines are published by the German Welding Society (Deutscher Verband für Schweißen) and deal with welded structures in railway applications.

»
LIMIT DangVan

DangVan

The Dang Van criterion is used for fatigue analysis of structures under cyclical multi axial stress states.

»
LIMIT Benutzerdefiniert

User-defined / S-N-diagrams

LIMIT users can define their own material behaviour via S-N-diagrams.
