Markus Baumgärtel Modeling | Loading RF-MOVE RFEM RSMOVE RSTAB

I would like to superimpose two moving loads: Moving Load 1 stays at position 0.0 m and Moving Load 2 runs once over the entire girder. Then, Moving Load 1 stays at 0.2 m and Moving Load 2 runs over the girder again. Is this possible?

Answer

These load positions can be generated in the RF-MOVE or RSMOVE add-on module: Model File under Downloads includes two cases of moving loads (Crane A and Crane B). There are 50 load cases resulting for the moving loads only.

The load cases are then combined automatically. In the "Actions" tab, you can specify the effect of the load cases to each other. For this, the load cases for Crane A are assigned to Group 1, the load cases for Crane B to Group 2. This means that all combinations of Crane A are mutually exclusive. The same applies to Crane B. However, the load cases of Crane A can be combined with the load cases of Crane B.

Further information on moving loads and the combination of actions can be found in our manuals.
