How can I display the internal forces in the global coordinate system and not in the main reference of the section?


The RSTAB and RFEM software have two axes for asymmetric, open or arbitrary sections. After the calculation, the results for the main axes are displayed. The user may, however, specify the desired base coordinate system for displaying the vectors. Just check one of the two box options between 'Main Axes' or 'Member Axes' in the Project Navigator - Results.
