In addition to our technical support (e.g. via chat), you’ll find resources on our website that may help you with your design using Dlubal Software.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Customer Support 24/7
AnswerThe limits cannot be modified in ALUMINUM. However, you can create a new material with modified boundaries based on the required material. Figure 1 shows the window of the material library. Select a suitable base material here and then click on "Create new material ...". In the following dialog you can assign the material a new name and change all parameters of the material.
One or more stress points of the cross-section have a thickness that is not covered by the material properties. Therefore, the add-on modules cannot go back to the yield strength for the design and display the warning.
Please select another material that covers the thickness range, or change the thickness range of the existing material.
AnswerThe cause lies less in the defined cross section, but rather in the material characteristics. The yield strengths and limiting stresses are stored there as a function of the component thickness. An unacceptability results when the thickness of a cross-sectional part is greater than the existing thickness range.
To fix this, you have the following options:
1) You can create another thickness range with the appropriate voltages in the mask 1.2 "Materials" module-internal
2) Alternatively, you can select a different material with suitable thickness ranges in the library of RSTAB / RFEM

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.”
