Separate Load Entry for Structure or Foundation Design

Tips & Tricks

In RF-/FOUNDATION Pro, the foundation design requires the definition of corresponding loading (load cases, load combinations, or result combinations) for the different design situations (STR, GEO, UPL, or EQU).

By default, the loads for designs are entered for the design situations (STR) and (GEO) in Window 1.4 Loading. This means that the same loads are used for these designs.

In RF‑/FOUNDATION Pro, it is also possible to change this setting, if necessary. For this, clear the ‘Apply the same loads for (STR) and (GEO)’ check box in the ‘Details’ dialog box. Thus, you adjust Window 1.4 Loading, so you can enter the loading separately for the designs of the structure and the foundation.
