Is it possible to display the results of the belonging internal forces for a maximum or minimum internal force in the case of a result combination as an envelope for the surface internal forces?

Answer

For members, the belonging internal forces are shown in addition to the maximum values and the minimum values in a result combination. Due to the large amount of data, the maximum and minimum values for each grid point are only displayed in the case of the surface internal forces. The belonging internal forces for the maximum value or the minimum value are not displayed.

Therefore, RFEM calculates all load cases, load combinations, and result combinations contained in the result combination for the results evaluation, and lists the maximum and minimum values accordingly. If you want to have the belonging internal forces for the result value of the result combination, it is necessary to search for the elements contained in the result combination and compare them with the corresponding value.

If the load case or load combination is found, the belonging internal forces are also displayed for each grid point of the surface.

For a faster evaluation, you can also use the COM interface.
