• ### Some nodes lie outside a plane. What is the easiest way to shift it to the desired plane?

New FAQ 003047 EN-US Modeling | Structure RFEM RSTAB

For planes that lie perpendicular to the global coordinate system, it is relatively easy, since a coordinate of all points in the plane must be identical. However, if the plane is a general plane of space, you have to create a user-defined coordinate system and then move the node in the user-defined coordinate system.

However, the fastest option is the "Project" function (see Video). This allows nodes that lie outside of the target plane to be quickly moved into them.
• ### I measured a wall with RF-BETON surfaces. On the outside and inside I get the same amount of reinforcement [cm² / m]. Do I have to insert A s, top + A s, below ? Or just one value (either above or below)?

In RF-CONCRETE Surfaces, the "top" or "bottom" position is controlled by the orientation of the area's local coordinate system.

This means for a wall that As, below or As, above can either be the reinforcement on the outside or inside depending on the orientation of the local z-axis.

Both values must be taken into account for the reinforcement planning.
So the sum of A s, below + A s, above .
• ### By default, the crane in the KRANBAHN module extends beyond the ends of the carrier. How can I stop this?

FAQ 002432 EN-US Add-on Modules CRANEWAY

To determine the maximum support forces, it is often necessary for the crane to be able to travel beyond the beam to be designed. This ensures that z. For example, in the case of an asymmetrical load distribution, each wheel really passes over the critical location of the beam.

However, if support buffers are available to prevent the crane from moving out at the left and / or right end, you can enter the distances b L and b R in both input fields. This also reduces the number of generated load combinations.

An eccentric arrangement of the buffers can, if necessary, be described in a dialog box via the [Details] button (see Figure).
