Action Combination

Glossary Term

Action combinations represent an overview of the loads to be combined in conjunction with the selected design situation.

There are listed all loads and the respective partial safety factors and combination coefficients of them, which are required according to the selected standard. Based on this information, the load combinations to be designed are subsequently created.

In order to reduce the number of load combinations in RFEM and RSTAB, it is possible to deactivate the action combinations that are not needed.
