Wind Simulation & Wind Load Generation

RWIND Simulation Manuals

With the stand-alone program RWIND Simulation, you can simulate wind flow 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.

Items:

  • Activation of the Camera Fly Mode in RFEM

    Camera Fly Mode

    With the view option Camera Fly Mode, you can fly through your RFEM and RSTAB structure. Control the direction and speed of the flight with your keyboard. Additionally, you can save the flight through your structure as a video.

  • Export option "Update only materials, thicknesses and cross -sections

    Updating the Revit Model

    The direct interface with Revit allows you to update the Revit model according to the changes you have made in RFEM or RSTAB. Depending on the modification, the Revit objects may have to be regenerated (deleting the object and subsequent regeneration). The regeneration is performed on the basis of the RFEM/RSTAB model.

    If you want to avoid this regeneration, activate the option "Update only materials, thicknesses, and sections." In this case, only the properties of the objects will be adjusted. Changes different from those in material, surface thickness, and section are, however, not considered in this case.

  • Transfer of reinforcement from RFEM/RSTAB (top) to Revit (bottom)

    Bar Reinforcement Export to Revit

    The reinforcement proposal from RF-/CONCRETE Members can be exported to Revit. The rectangular and circular cross-sections are currently supported.

    The reinforcement bars can be modified retroactively in Revit.

  • Data exchange with Advance Steel via *.smlx files

    Data Exchange with Advance Steel Using *.smlx Files

    When exchanging data with Advance Steel using *.smlx files, the interface is automatically detected. This means that *.smlx files can be created even if no version of Advance Steel is installed.

  • Member type "Damper" in RFEM

    Member Type "Dashpot"

    The member type "Dashpot" can be used for time history analyses in RFEM/RSTAB with the add-on modules RF-/DYNAM Pro - Forced Vibrations and RF-/DYNAM Pro - Nonlinear Time History. This linear viscous damping element considers forces dependent on velocity.

    With regard to viscoelasticity, the member type "Dashpot" is similar to the Kelvin-Voigt model which consists of the damping element and an elastic spring (both connected in parallel).

  • Office 2007 Black Style

    Multilingual Program Operation

    000008

    RFEM

    RSTAB

    General

    It is possible to operate the program in the following languages: English, German, Chinese, Czech, Dutch, French, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish.

    The user‑interface design of RFEM/RSTAB can be customized.

    There are nine different styles of graphical user interface to choose from, for example: Office 2007 Blue, Silver, Aqua, or Black.

  • Combinatorics dialog box and Table 2.5 Load Combinations

    Automatic Generation of Combinations

    The "Edit Load Cases and Combinations" dialog box provides the option of the automatic generation of load and result combinations after selecting the corresponding combination expressions. In this clearly arranged dialog box, it is also possible to copy, add, or renumber load cases, for example.

    Furthermore, you can manage the load cases and combinations in Tables 2.1 – 2.6.

  • Navigator shortcut menu for creating a new surface

    Intuitive Graphical User-Interface

    A structure is created in the graphical user interface typical for CAD programs or by using tables. Right-clicking on graphical or navigator objects activates the shortcut menu, which facilitates creating or editing such objects. The user interface is operated intuitively. Therefore the model and loading objects can be created in a minimal amount of time.

  • Printing graphics as a series

    Mass Print

    There is a mass print function for the model data, loads, and results. It is possible to create graphics from different defined directions. For example, you can print all internal forces in an isometric view with a single mouse click.

  • Display of Object Colors According to Cross-Sections

    Display Properties

    It is possible to assign different colors to various objects of a structure in order to make the rendering display of the structure more clearly arranged.

    The following categories are available: Materials, Cross‑Sections, Member Types, Member Hinges, Surface Types - Geometry, Surface Types - Stiffness, Surface Thickness, Solid Types, Surface Sides, and User‑Defined Visibilities and Effective Length Factors.
