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

Clear arrangement is a great advantage of RFEM 6. In your result tables, it is shown in color whether the internal forces are positive or negative, and what is the relation to the extreme values. Also in the graphic, you can recognize the positive or negative internal forces due to different colors. These colors can be changed, if necessary.


Result Diagrams

Customize the display of your data to your individual preferences. The result diagrams of members, surfaces (RFEM), and supports are freely configurable. You can define smooth ranges with average values or, if necessary, display and hide the result distributions. This ensures targeted evaluation of your results. Furthermore, you can easily add all diagrams to the printout report.


Visualization of Results

Also on the rendered model, you see your results in a clear color display. Thus, you can exactly recognize the rotation of a member or the stress distribution in a surface, for example. If you want to set the colors and value ranges, you can easily do so 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 arranged 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. Moreover, you also get the information about the calculation process. You can filter the result tables by specific criteria, such as extreme values or design locations, in order to obtain a better overview.


Multi Print of Graphics

Use the mass print function for your model data, loads, and results. You can create graphics from different directions that you define. For example, you can print all internal forces as an isometric view with just a single mouse click.


Multilingual Report Output

Of course, RFEM 6 also offers extensive language settings for our customers from all over the world. Various languages are available for the results in your printout report: English, German, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, Czech, Polish, Russian, and Chinese. You can create further language versions individually.
You can easily import additional texts. Configure the page numbering to use prefixes, for example. Furthermore, you can 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 the selection criteria. Simply create printout templates from the existing projects. You can reuse them across your projects.
