Glossary Term

Solids are spatial bodies which are defined by surfaces on all sides.

Additional properties can be assigned to the solid such as homogeneous, isotropic or orthotropic materials, properties of an ideal gas or contact properties between two surfaces.

Entering in RFEM

Solids can be entered and defined by using the menu 'Insert' → 'Model Data' → 'Solids' or the Data Navigator. Select the surrounding surfaces and define the solid type in the dialog box.
