Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

AnswerFor some parameters, additional [Details] buttons are available in the Display Properties. It is necessary to open a new dialog box to scale e.g. the distance or size of the object to the dimensions of the entire model.
AnswerThe font size of the Title and Max/Min Info can be set in the Display Properties. To use this function, select Options → Display Properties → Edit in the menu.
AnswerFirst, make sure that the enlargement of the load arrows in the display properties is also set for the printout report. The arrow sizes can be set between the values 3 to 8. If no improvement is achieved despite changing to the maximum value and reloading the printout report, you should update the graphics driver and the printer driver.
AnswerThe loads are always displayed with the relative limit settings.In this way, it is ensured that the loads on very small structures, but also on very large structures can still be displayed reasonably.You can individually adjust the relative limit settings by using the display properties.
In the attached video, the reduction of the minimum relative limit for the load value display allows for the user-defined form of the graphic.
Yes, this is possible by means of the Configuration Manager.The display properties are a component of the currently active configuration. The active configuration is shown in thick font in the Configuration Manager (Options → Configuration Manager) (see Figure 01). You can easily export the display properties modifications of this configuration to a file by means of two buttons (see Figure 01) and import them again to another PC.If using the RSTAB, you receive a configuration file with the extension ".rsconfig" during the export. For RFEM, you receive a ".rfconfig" file.
AnswerNo, it is not possible to change the display properties for several categories (e.g. the text size for the load values of all load types) at once. This must be set individually for each category (e.g. load type).However, in case of having set the display properties once for a configuration on a PC, you can simply transfer it to another PC via the Configuration Manager. For this, see FAQ 2982 using the following link.
Right-click one of the values and select "Display Properties" in the shortcut menu to get directly to the required setting: Here you can make settings in both tabs "Screen" and "Printout Report," for example to set transparent or colored display of the values or the background color of the values.
In the second tab of the panel, increase the display factor of the "reaction forces." This should improve the display (see Figure 01).
As an alternative, you can adjust the display properties using the menu "Options → Display Properties → Edit": change the size of the display in the "Results → Support Reactions → Nodal Forces" category. If necessary, you can also adjust the "relative limit settings" in the detail settings (see Figure 02).
If you only want to display the "Max" or "Min value" for the RC results, you can make the corresponding setting in the Results navigator (see Figure 03).
AnswerGenerally, this function represent a "record function". After activating this option, every change will be done for screen as wekk as for the printout report. This function does not synchronize the previously modified functions. It synchronizes the changes only.
Right-click the load arrow and select "Increase Display Size" or "Reduce Display Size" in the shortcut menu.
For more detailed settings, use the display properties from the shortcut menu. For each load object, you can individually set the distance, size, color, etc.
Furthermore, the size of the load vectors depends on the limit settings, which are relative to the size of the entire model. These limits can be checked and, if necessary, modified by clicking the [Settings] button.

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 very much for the useful information.
I would like to pay a compliment to your support team. I am always impressed how quickly and professionally the questions are answered. In the industry of structural analysis, I use several software including service contract, but your support is by far the best.”
