Free Webinar Information
This webinar shows you the questions asked about RFEM 6 and RSTAB 9, which have recently been answered by Dlubal's support team.
Date | Time
|1:57||How can I use guidelines to create a grid for a building?|
|7:47||I came across the "Area of load application" setting in the load wizard. How does this setting affect the magnitude of the load in my model?|
|12:47||Can I get the program to calculate the spring of a wall for a line support without modeling the wall at the same time?|
|15:40||How can I create multiple FE elements across the thickness of elongated, thin solids without having to create an extremely fine FE mesh?|
|20:30||How do I customize the appearance of objects in the background (Hidden Objects in Background)?|
|23:03||In the model space of RFEM 6, I can exaggerate the deformation according to a factor. How can I do the same in the graphic printout? Or rather, how can I adopt the same factor of the display from the model?|

The response spectrum analysis is one of the most frequently used design methods in the case of earthquakes. This method has many advantages, the most important being the simplification.
- How can I display the internal forces of a coupling member or rigid member in RFEM 6 / RSTAB 9?
- How can a member hinge be assigned to members graphically in RFEM 6 / RSTAB 9?
- When opening a model file, I get the warning message saying that "dangling pointers have been fixed." What does this message mean?
The structural analysis program RFEM 6 is the basis of a modular software system. The main program RFEM 6 is used to define structures, materials, and loads of planar and spatial structural systems consisting of plates, walls, shells, and members. The program can also design combined structures as well as solid and contact elements.
The structural frame & truss analysis and design program RSTAB 9 contains a similar range of functions as the FEA software RFEM, paying special attention to frames and trusses. Therefore, it is very easy to use and for many years, it has been the best choice for the structural analysis of beam structures consisting of steel, concrete, timber, aluminum, and other materials.
