  1. Line Load with Influence Width

    Line Load with Influence Width

    In addition to manually entering values, you can enter line loads in the ‘Member Load’ dialog box using the ‘Multilayer Composition’ function. It is a library which contains compositions of several layers for applying loads. You can freely specify the layer structure using the parameters of description, thickness, density or surface load and comment for each layer.

  2. Using Load from Multilayer Structure in RFEM 5 and RSTAB 8

    Using Load from Multilayer Structure

    In RFEM 5 and RSTAB 8, you can specify multilayer structures as loading. The figure shows an example of a floor structure. To this end, you need to define the individual layers including the thickness and density, and obtain the according surface load. The input is saved, thus allowing you to create a well‑structured library.
