Can I have the surplus loads directly reported as a result of earthquakes?

Answer

The module 'RF- / DYNAM Pro - Substitute Loads' performs the multi-modal response spectral method. The equivalent loads are determined explicitly and exported into load cases in the main program RFEM / RSTAB. Load cases are created separately for each selected eigenform and excitation direction. Such a load case is illustrated by way of example in Fig. 1. You can display the loads in these exported load cases as usual. A list of the generated loads can be found in the result tables of the dynamic load cases, see Figure 2. Substitute loads are generated at each finite element node (or each inner node). If the number of generated loads is too large, the graph will be disabled. You can adjust this setting in the 'Details' of the RF / DYNAM Pro modules as shown in Figure 3.
