Displaying Generated Surface Loads on Frameworks

  • Knowledge Base

Tips & Tricks

In RFEM 5 and RSTAB 8, you can generate surface loads like wind and snow by means of the implemented load generator. On frameworks, these surface loads are also displayed as surface load in the graphic by default. To quickly and easily control the applied load or the load on each individual member, you can use the option for the separate display of loads. To do this, select the respective check box in the ‘Display’ navigator as shown in the picture.
