Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

AnswerThe limits cannot be modified in the mentioned add-on modules. However, you can create a new material with modified limits based on the desired material. Figure 1 shows the window of the material library. Select a suitable base material here and then click on "Create new material ...". In the following dialog you can assign the material a new name and change all parameters of the material.
This effect usually occurs in SHAPE-THIN cross-sections. When modeling the cross-sections, make sure that the input for heights and thickness of the elements is not reversed (see Figure 1).
AnswerThe cause lies less in the defined cross section, but rather in the material characteristics. The yield strengths and limiting stresses are stored there as a function of the component thickness. An unacceptability results when the thickness of a cross-sectional part is greater than the existing thickness range.
To fix this, you have the following options:
1) You can create another thickness range with the appropriate voltages in the mask 1.2 "Materials" module-internal
2) Alternatively, you can select a different material with suitable thickness ranges in the library of RSTAB / RFEM

Wind Simulation & Wind Load Generation
With the stand-alone program RWIND Simulation, wind flows around simple or complex structures can be simulated by means of a digital wind tunnel.
The generated wind loads acting on these objects can be imported to RFEM or RSTAB.
“Thank you for the valuable information.
I would like to pay a compliment to your support team. I am always impressed how quickly and professionally the questions are answered. I have used a lot of software with a support contract in the field of structural analysis, but your support is by far the best. ”
