Yes, that is possible.First, RF-STABILITY (or RSBUCK in RSTAB 8) can be used to determine the effective lengths for a particular structure and loading.They can then be imported in the 'Effective Lengths' of the RF-/TIMBER Pro dialog box.
I have modified cross-section properties or reduced stiffnesses of a members in RFEM/RSTAB. After a new calculation, the deformation of the structural system has adjusted itself to the new cross-section properties. However, this change is not taken into account when performing design in add-on modules.
In principle, the modified cross-section properties are not transferred into add-on modules, such as RF‑/STEEL or RF‑/STEEL EC3. They are only used for the calculation of internal forces.
In the add-on modules, stresses are calculated using the real cross-section dimensions, which cannot be modified. This would be difficult to implement as many designs require the element width or height and due to the modification, it is not known which parameter has been reduced exactly. This is important for the c/t-designs in RF‑/STEEL EC3, for example.

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.
Your support is by far the best
“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.”
