A foundation is usually created in RFEM using the subgrade reaction modulus method. The reason for this is the relatively easy and straightforward manageability. Also, no iterative calculations are necessary and the computing time is relatively small. The subgrade reaction means that, for example, a foundation plate is loaded flat elastically.
RFEM and RSTAB models can be saved as 3D glTF models (*.glb and *.glTF formats). View the models in 3D in detail with a 3D viewer from Google or Baylon. Take your VR glasses, such as Oculus, to "walk" through the structure.
- For the settlement calculation in the RF‑SOILIN add-on module, the specific weight gamma and gamma,sat are required for the soil. What do I need the value gamma,sat for, and how is it assumed in the calculation?
- Is there a way how to easily prevent RF‑SOILIN from recalculating the foundation every time the load in the governing load case is changed?
- Can I also use RF‑SOILIN to calculate foundation bodies at different foundation heights in a model?
- Why do I obtain such high contact stresses at the foundation edges of my floor slab?
- Why do I get the error message 10203 for a result beam when performing design with RF‑CONCRETE Members?
How can I retrospectively reduce the determined provided longitudinal reinforcement in RF‑CONCRETE Columns?
Is it possible to specify shrinkage effects as loads?
Which units are specified in the result display of the support reactions (kN or kN/m)? A note about this is missing in the graphic.
In the case that the support reactions are given in kN/m, for which distance does the value apply?
- Four surfaces have identical loads, but they show different negative moments at the support location. Is this an error?
- Where do I find the setting to specify the entered structural component as a "wall" or "slab"?
