Video: RWIND Simulation | Wind Flow on Laterally Open Structures According to DIN 1055-4


7 May 2021



Because EN 1991-1-4 does not address internal wind pressure for laterally open structures, it is recommended to apply the regulations according to the previous German DIN 1055-4.

This video demonstrates wind flow with simultaneous pressure and suction forces utilizing the "RWIND Simulation" program on four different building types.

Webinar recording: Timber Beam and Surface Structures | Part 1: Modeling, Load Input, Combinatorics


6 May 2021



In this webinar we show you how to use the structural analysis software RFEM for modeling beam and surface structures made of timber, entering loads, and combining load cases.

Combinations of Crane Loads: EN 1990 + EN 1991-3; Cranes


5 May 2021


Knowledge Base

The automatic creation of combinations in RFEM and RSTAB with the ‘EN 1990 + EN 1991‑3; Cranes’ option allows you to design crane runway beams as well as support loads on the rest of the structure.

Somnium - JKU Campus Observation Platform in Linz, Austria


4 May 2021


Customer Project

The Somnium is an accessible roof garden located on the TNF tower (Faculty of Engineering Natural Sciences Tower - TNF) of the Johannes Kepler University Linz (JKU).

The TNF tower was built in the 1970s and is the tallest building on the JKU campus with a height of 164 ft. The slender Somnium steel structure was built on the roof of the existing building. The new observation platform is spatially framed by a lattice framework and offers the best view over the university campus and the surrounding city area.

This free webinar shows how to utilize the structural analysis software RFEM to model timber beam and surface structures, enter loads, and combine load cases.

Video: Singularities on Nodal and Line Supports


3 May 2021



Due to the FE methodology, it often happens that stress concentrations arise at nodal and line supports. This video shows the possibilities for dealing with such singularity locations.

Calculation of the reinforcement of a tension member with RF-CONCRETE Members


30 April 2021


Knowledge Base

This article deals with determining the reinforcement for a beam subjected only to tension according to EN-1992-1-1.

Determining Variable Cross-Section Depth of Tapered Member Using 'Connect Lines or Members'


29 April 2021


Knowledge Base

In RFEM, if you want to insert a tapered member with intermediate nodes into an existing model, the question often arises how to quickly determine the individual cross-section depths of the tapered members. The "Connect Lines or Members" command comes in handy for this purpose.

Infotainment | Video: Effective Depth


28 April 2021



What is the effective depth? In short, this is the distance between the component edge of the compression side and the centroid of the tension reinforcement.

It is directly related to the bending design of a component because it defines the inner lever arm and therefore also the acting tensile and compressive forces.

Wind Simulation & Wind Load Generation

RWIND Simulation Manuals

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.
