Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Customer Support 24/7
In the model, the lines and nodes lying in the plane are not integrated in the surface in the surface properties. Also when selecting the surface using "Select → Related Objects," the border lines are only selected, not the lines within the surface.
In the case of the "Select in Plane" command with "Definition of Plane via 3 Nodes," the lines are displayed as integrated in the surface, but not after creating the FE mesh. I have set the tolerances for regenerating the model as necessary.
Objects like lines and nodes are automatically integrated in a surface by default, as soon as these objects have a static function (for example, supports, load reference). Objects that are not statically relevant are not automatically integrated in the surface.
The reason is as follows: the results are not averaged at integrated lines, thus often leading to a jump in the color distribution of the results values. At statically relevant lines, this is also correct. Many integrated lines, however, are so-called construction lines, and are particularly imported when importing a DFX file.
If you select the "Integrate unutilized objects in the surface" check box in the FE Mesh Settings dialog box (see Figure), all lines will be integrated in the surface.

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. ”
