Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Customer Support 24/7
If you apply a moving load from the library of load models, you can specify there a "thickness of dispersal layer" and the "angle of dispersal" (see Figure 01). Based on these entries, RF-MOVE Surfaces determines the length and width of the rectangular surfaces and generates free surface loads.
Alternatively, if you have entered concentrated loads as moving loads, you can right-click the free concentrated load and convert it into a surface load by using the corresponding option in the shortcut menu (see Figure 02). There are also the parameters for controlling the load width.
Define several load cases to create a moving load. Each load case should correspond to a certain position of the moving load in the structure.
You can easily generate the load cases from the load positions on members in the add-on modules RF-MOVE (for RFEM) and RSMOVE (for RSTAB). Using RF-MOVE Surfaces, it is also possible to generate load cases from moving loads on surfaces in RFEM (see the figure).

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. ”
