How do I influence the x-locations in the results tables for members?


The x-locations (distance of member division points) are defined by the member division. Additional member divisions can be defined in the dialog box or in Table 1.6 or 1.16.

Member divisions allow for a definition of points on members, on which the internal forces and deformations are displayed in the result tables and in the numerical printout. Member division has neither an influence on the determination of extreme values nor on the graphical result diagram (RFEM internally uses a finer division). Therefore, member divisions are not necessary in most cases.

Note: The member division for the graphical result diagram is controlled by the global calculation parameters.
