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.

  1. Schematic representation of the components for distance calculation

    Selection of nodes along a line by means of the COM interface

    If you read out the results of a surface via the COM interface, you get a one-dimensional field with all results at the FE nodes or grid points. To get the results on the edge of a surface or along a line within the surfaces, you have to filter out the results in the area of the line. The following describes a function that can perform this task.

    Routes from BIM model to structural engineering and back

    The calculation of structures based on digital twins is increasingly becoming an everyday task in the engineering office. For if a digital building model already exists, you want to continue to use the information contained in it as seamlessly as possible. This places far-reaching requirements with regard to modeling and interfaces for BIM-compatible structural analysis software.

  3. Dialog Box 'Insert DXF Template'

    Cross-section modeling based on DXF files

    In SHAPE-THIN, you can import cross-section geometries that are available as outline or centroid layouts in DXF format and use them as a basis for modeling.

    The Benefits of BIM in Structural Analysis

    Building Information Modeling hits the headlines in building design. While some engineers only use BIM methods for planning, others deal with this topic for the first time or hardly have time for it in their daily working routine. However, one topic seems to be the most important in structural engineering: How can structural engineers benefit from BIM?

  5. Figure 01 - Importing a DXF File as Lines

    Importing a DXF File as Basis for the Modeling

    In RFEM and RSTAB, you can import DXF files via the import function. These DXF files can be used as the basis for modeling a structural system.

  6. Figure 01 - Creating a Parts List

    COM Interface in VBA | Creating a Parts List

    Parts lists give information about which and how many parts are necessary for creating a building. They are the basis for identifying the needs and purchasing the components. Parts lists can be created in the design modules such as RF-/STEEL EC3, RF-/TIMBER Pro and so on. Additionally, a customized parts list can be created with the RF-COM/RS-COM interface.

  7. Export of Amount of Reinforcement from RFEM to REVIT

    Opportunities and Challenges of Structural Engineers When Using BIM

    The bachelor thesis of Daniel Dlubal focuses on presenting and highlighting the chances, advantages and opportunities of BIM when performing structural analysis and design of buildings. The essential information of a structural analysis is shown and the data exchange between CAD and structural engineering software is explained in detail as well.
  8. Figure 01 - Template Explorer

    Using Templates in VCmaster

    By using an interface, it is possible to export the RFEM/RSTAB printout report to VCmaster and continue editing there. VCmaster is a word processing program for engineers.

    COM Interface in VBA | 5. Creating a Tool to Copy and Move Guidelines

    RF-COM/RS-COM is a programmable interface which allows the user to expand the main programmes RFEM and RSTAB by customized input macros or post‑processing programmes. In this article, a tool to copy and move selected guidelines in RFEM will be developed. It is possible to copy or move the guidelines also to another work plane. VBA in Excel will be used as programming environment.

    Interfaces and Relevant Features for BIM-Oriented Planning

    This article discusses the most common BIM interfaces. During the transition to the structural branch-specific model, adjustments are often necessary. The occurring tasks and tools for their successful and fast solution are presented.
