When running PLATE‑BUCKLING as a stand‑alone program or as an add‑on module within RFEM/RSTAB, the "from RFEM" or "from RSTAB" button is grayed out.


If the PLATE‑BUCKLING add-on module is not opened as a stand-alone version, but via RFEM or RSTAB, it is possible to import the panels (c/t parts of a member cross-section) and the respective load cases of the RFEM or RSTAB model to PLATE‑BUCKLING (see the figure).

If there are no valid cross-sections of PLATE‑BUCKLING found in the model file of RFEM/RSTAB, the option for importing the buckling panels remains inactive.
