Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

AnswerThe critical load factor specifies the factor by which you can increase a load until the system fails. If it is smaller than one, a calculation according to the second-order analysis is usually unstable because the system is already stressed by the critical load. This factor is also taken into account in standardization. For example, Eurocode 3 specifies that a calculation according to the second-order analysis is no longer necessary from a critical load factor of 10.The critical load factor can be determined by the RSBUCK module or RF-STABILITY.

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. ”
