How to use Dlubal parameters in a Revit interface?

Answer

Dlubal parameters are the parameters in Revit that do not exist by default. They are only enabled after the activation ("Add Parameters" → "Start") in various dialog boxes. 
In this case, the information is specific to RFEM/RSTAB and can be stored in Revit. When exporting from Revit to Dlubal Software, you can export and convert this information from RFEM/RSTAB.

"Without Tension"
- to be found in the analytical wall properties
- corresponds to the "Without membrane tension" surface type stiffness

"Surface Support"
- to be found in the analytical slab or plate properties
- creates a surface support with the specified spring constants in RFEM

"Dlubal Name (Material)"
- can be found in the user-defined material parameters
- possible to directly assign the Dlubal material name (without using the conversion table)

"Dlubal Name (Cross-Section)"
- to be found in the model properties of columns or beams
- possible to directly assign the Dlubal cross-section name (without using the conversion table)

"Member Type Truss/Tension Member"
- to be found in the analytical beam or support properties
- corresponds to the Truss or Tension member type in RFEM/RSTAB
