FAQ 002785 EN-US

# For RSTAB/RFEM, I use cross-sections whose values are defined by direct input. How do I get the RF-/STEEL module to consider my cross-sections?

Create a user-defined cross-section (see Figure). In addition, you have to specify the stress points with all necessary values for this cross-section. Then, RFEM STEEL Members and STEEL Stresses can be calculated at these cross-section points in the add-on modules RF-STEEL.
