Structural FEA Software RFEM 5 | Results

Structural Analysis & Engineering Software

The FEA program RFEM allows for quick and easy modeling, structural and dynamic calculation, as well as design of models with member, plate, wall, folded plate, shell, and solid elements.

Due to the modular software concept, you can connect the basic program RFEM with the corresponding add‑ons in order to meet your individual requirements.

Result Evaluation and Printout Report

Further Information

Helpful 3D Rendering in RFEM

“When extending the mosque in Mecca, it was especially helpful in RFEM to visualize the structure in 3D rendering and share the results with project partners from different cultural backgrounds.”


Project: Expansion of the Holy Mosque in Mecca, Saudi Arabia

Internal forces, deformations, and support forces are displayed in tables and graphically on the model. Filter criteria allow for targeted selection of results. All data is documented in a multilingual printout report. The content can be adjusted and saved as a template. Furthermore, you can export the printout report as a RTF or a PDF file as well as in VCmaster.

1

Color Representation of Internal Forces

Result tables display the available positive and negative internal forces in colors, including the relation to extreme values. The result tables of the design modules use color scales to represent respective design ratios. In this way, the governing locations are immediately apparent.

2

Result Diagrams

The result diagrams of members, surfaces, and supports are freely configurable: You can define smooth ranges with average values or, if necessary, display and hide the result distributions. This option ensures targeted evaluation of results. All diagrams can be added in the printout report.

3

Visualization of Results

The results on a rendered model are represented by a number of colors in order to easily detect deformations such as member rotation. You can freely define the colors and the range of values in the control panel. Deformations, surface stresses, and internal forces can be animated and saved as a video file.

4

Detailed Result Tables

The first result table displays a summarized overview providing the equilibrium of forces in the structural system and the maximum deformations. Information about the calculation process is included as well. You can filter the result tables by specific criteria such as extreme values or design locations.

5

Mass Print of Graphics

It is possible to print a model, loads, and results in a series. Graphics can be created on the basis of different directions to be specified. For example, you can print all internal forces as an isometric view with a single mouse‑click.

6

Printout Report Export in RTF or PDF File and in VCmaster

There are various languages available for the results included in a printout report: English, German, French, Spanish, Italian, Czech, Slovak, Hungarian, Polish, Dutch, Portuguese, Russian, and Chinese. You can individually create further languages.

It is possible to import additional texts as RTF files. Page numbering can be configured as well in order to use prefixes, for example. Furthermore, you can export the printout report as a RTF or PDF file as well as in VCmaster.

7

Printout Report Extent Management

The extent of a printout report can be individually adjusted by means of selection criteria. You can create printout templates based on already existing printouts and reuse them globally for all design projects.
