Result Evaluation and Printout Report

Helpful 3D Rendering in RFEM

“When extending the mosque in Mecca, it was especially helpful in RFEM to visualize the structure in 3D rendering and share the results with project partners from different cultural backgrounds.”

Project: Expansion of the Holy Mosque in Mecca, Saudi Arabia

Your results and data are clearly displayed and easily accesible stored in RFEM. Internal forces, deformations, and support forces are displayed to you in tables and graphically on the model. You can specifically select your results using different filter criteria. All data is also documented in a multilingual printout report, the content of which you can easily adapt and save as a template. Furthermore, you can easily add graphics, texts, MathML formulas, and PDF documents to the report.


Color Representation of Internal Forces

Clarity is a great advantage of RFEM 6. In your result tables, it is shown in color whether there are positive or negative internal forces and which relation exists to the extreme values. You can also see the positive or negative internal forces in the graphic by means of the different colors. These colors can be changed, if necessary.


Result Diagrams

Adapt the presentation of your data to your individual preferences. The result diagrams of members, surfaces (RFEM), and supports are freely configurable. You can define smoothing areas with average values or show or hide result diagrams as required. This ensures the targeted evaluation of your results. In addition, all diagrams can be easily transferred to the printout report.


Visualization of Results

You can also see your results in a clear color representation on the rendered model. In this way, you can, for example, precisely identify the twisting of a member or the stress distribution in a surface. If you want to set colors and value ranges, this is easily possible in the control panel.


Result Display via Clipping Plane

This feature also contributes to the clearly-arranged display of your results. Clipping planes are intersecting planes that you can place freely throughout the model. The zone in front of or behind the plane is consequently hidden in the display. This way, you can clearly and simply show the results in an intersection or a solid, for example.

Detailed Result Tables

With clearly structured tables, you can always keep an eye on your results. The first result table displays a summarized overview providing the equilibrium of forces in the structural system and the maximum deformations. You will also receive information about the calculation process itself. You can filter the other result tables according to certain criteria such as extreme values or output points for a better overview.


Multi Print of Graphics

Easily print your model, loads, and results as a series. You can create the graphics from different directions, which you define yourself. For example, you can print all internal forces as an isometric view with just one click.


Multilingual Report Output

Of course, RFEM 6 also offers extensive language settings for our customers from all over the world. The output in your printout report can be done in different languages: German, English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, Czech, Polish, Russian and Chinese. You can create other languages yourself.
You can easily import additional texts. Configure the page numbering, for example, to use prefixes. You can also export the report as a PDF file.


Management of Printout Report Scope

Decide for yourself how extensive your printout should be and adjust it individually using selection criteria. Simply create print templates from existing projects. You can reuse these across projects.
