Knowledge Base Articles
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.

Product Features Articles
RFEM and RSTAB models can be saved as 3D glTF models (*.glb and *.glTF formats). You can use a 3D viewer to view, rotate, etc. the models.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
- 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?
- How to model a cable net structure in using the RF-FORM-FINDING add-on module?
- I have version 5.24 and the calculation takes me longer than in previous versions for the same model. What is the reason for this?
- How is the support spring calculated for a wall?
- Is it possible to renumber cross-sections and materials in RFEM and RSTAB?
- What should be considered when using a failure of columns under tension in the RF‑/DYNAM Pro - Equivalent Loads add-on module?
- For a tapered member, I get the error message "Invalid (incompatible) arrangement ...". What can I do?
