KB 001819 | Deflection Analysis of Member Elements
First Steps with RFEM
Make sure your structures remain serviceable! For this, the deformations must not exceed certain limit values. Here is an example of how you can check the deflection of members using the design add-ons.

When calculating regular structures, data input is often not complicated but time-consuming. Input automation can save valuable time. The task described in the present article is to consider the stories of a house as single construction stages. Data is entered using a C# program so that the user does not have to enter the elements of the individual floors manually.
