The user-defined materials are available to all users. All users must have full access rights to the path of the user-defined material library.
The user-defined materials are saved in the Materials_User.dbd file. For the standard installation, the file is located in the C:\ProgramData\Dlubal\[Program] [Version]\General Data directory. You can also view the file path in the program options (see Figure 01).
AnswerIt is often the case that the selection of out-of-date materials may have an impact on the deformation of the beam. Please note that the material properties should always be taken from the respective standard. The material properties of the same material may differ depending on the standard and its National Annex.There was selected the same concrete for this example, but the concrete C35/45 | DIN 1045-1 has - compared with concrete C35/45 | DIN EN 1992-1-1 - a smaller modulus of elasticity (see Figure 1). Consequently, a larger deflection is created in the mid-span of the reinforced concrete beam, which is only loaded by its self-weight (see Figure 2).
You can right-click on the "Cross sections" entry in the Data Navigator. In the context menu that appears, you will find the command "Delete unassigned cross sections" with which the cross sections that are currently not used in the model (blue font) can be deleted with one click.
This procedure also works analogously for the materials, rod end joints, etc.

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. ”
