Wind Simulation & Wind Load Generation
With the stand -alone program RWIND Simulation, you can simulate wind flows around simple or complex structures by means of a digital wind tunnel.
The generated wind loads acting on these objects can be imported to RFEM or RSTAB.
An elastic foundation can be applied to a member. Thus, the influence of the soil is usually included in the modeling. Member elastic foundations can only be defined for the member type ‘Beam’.
For the quick generation of radial surface loads, the "Radial" load distribution dialog box is available in RFEM.
Parameterized entries provide the engineer with an efficiency-increasing tool. It allows for entering structural and loading data so that they depend on certain variables. These variables (for example, length, width, live load, etc.) are called parameters.
You can assign comments to each element in RFEM and RSTAB (structure element, load element etc.). This can help to improve the overview and documentation of structures, as the comments appear in the printout report and, for example, certain objects can be filtered and displayed using the "Select Special" function.
In RFEM, it is possible to modify stiffnesses for materials, cross -sections, members, load cases, and load combinations in many places. In order to consider these modifications when determining the natural frequencies, there are two options in RF-DYNAM Pro.
With RFEM, you can generate member, surface or solid loads resulting from movements. Thus, for example, braking or acceleration forces can be generated automatically from linear movements or from rotational movements on the system.
An elastic foundation can be applied to a member. The foundation is used to include the influence of soil in the modeling. Member elastic foundations can only be defined for the member type ‘Beam’.
When using interrupted welds between rail and flange, make sure that the applied weld length does not exceed the length of the rigid load application of the wheel load according to Equation 6.1 in .
As a quick tool for changing the structure geometry, the "Line Grid" option is available in the "Project Navigator-Data" under "Guide Objects".
In RFEM 5, the variable surface thicknesses can be displayed graphically as a color gradient.
