T&T 006 | Loads - Generating Wind Loads
The video shows the automatic generation of wind loads using the load generator in RFEM. As an example, the wind load is determined for a three-dimensional steel hall according to Eurocode.
Wind loads can be automatically generated as member loads on the following structural components (optional with internal pressure für open buildings):
- Vertical walls
- Flat roofs
- Monopitch roofs
- Duopitch/Troughed roofs
- Vertical walls with roof
The following standards are available:
- 1991-1-4 (including National Annexes)
- DIN 1055-4
- CTE DB-SE-AE
- ASCE/SEI 7-16
- Which load direction should I selected for members and surfaces in the case of a wind load?
- Are the vertical wall surfaces determined when generating wind loads by using surface loads for an open building?
- What is the meaning of the "Consider only increasing loads" feature in the wind load generator?
- When generating the load, I would like the gable binders of a hall not to be loaded by the wind on the gable wall. Is this possible?
- For which countries can I use the wind load generator in RFEM / RSTAB?
- Why do some external pressure coefficients have a value of 0 when generating wind loads?
- Can I also generate a wind load on roof overhangs using the load generator?
- Which roof and ground plan shapes can be considered with the wind and snow load generators of RFEM/RSTAB?
- I would like to calculate and design "temporary structures." What do I need for this?
- I design a cross-section created in the SHAPE‑THIN program by using the RF‑STEEL EC3 add-on module, but the program shows the error message "ER006 Invalid type of c/t-part for cross-section of type General." What can I do?
