AnswerYes, you can also use the RF-CONCRETE Surfaces add-on module to design bidirectional ribbed plates, ribbed floors, or hollow core slabs. The design is possible for the ultimate limit state.
The plates can be created as orthotropic surfaces in RFEM (see Figure 01).
AnswerWhen dimensioning a foundation plate, the option to save foundation dimensions is inactive. Even if the results from the previous calculation are already saved and available. See Figure 01.After the first calculation in the "Rate" mode, however, you can import the dimensions of the foundation plate as "start values" for a new calculation by using the "Import Dimensions of Foundation Plate from Calculation" button. See Figure 02.Thus, the results from the first calculation are deleted and the program runs the calculation in the "Define dimensions" mode. Now, this mode also provides you the option to save the foundation dimensions in the database of foundation templates. See Figure 03.
AnswerIf you want to print graphics in a report, the corresponding subitem must be active in the selection of the printout report in the "Global Selection" tab, see Figure 1. As a result, the tables are also displayed.
If you only want to print pictures in the printout report, it is necessary to deactivate the tables in the tabs, see Figure 2.Afterwards, it is also possible to save report templates so that they can be used again in other positions. New templates can be defined in the printout report menu:Settings → Printout Report Template → New or New from Current Printout Report, Figure 3.

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. ”
