- Color Scale
In the case of a multicoloured result display, the first tab displays the colour scale with the assigned value ranges. There is a colour scale with eleven colours by default, which covers the range between the extreme values at equal intervals.
The second tab controls the scaling factors for the graphic display. There are the text boxes for scaling deformations, member and surface diagrams, sections, reaction forces and trajectories, that are available depending on the current result graphic.
This tab controls the result display with respect to the selected surfaces, members, or solids. The selection field under the buttons specifies which one of the three object categories is possible for the result diagrams. The numbers of the relevant members, surfaces or solids must be entered in the 'Show diagrams for' text box.
- Surface Thicknesses
Surface thicknesses can be visualized on the model with various colours: if you activate the corresponding check box in the Display navigator under 'Model' → 'Surfaces' → 'Color Scale of Thicknesses in Panel', this additional panel appears with the respective colour assignment of the individual surfaces.
Entering in RFEM and RSTAB
The panel can be shown or hidden by using the menu 'View' → 'Control Panel' or the corresponding button.
Besides the standardized gamma method, you can display the semi-rigid composite beams also as a framework model.
Depending on stiffness, mass, and damping, structures react differently to wind action.
Which units are specified in the result display of the support reactions (kN or kN/m)? A note about this is missing in the graphic.
In the case that the support reactions are given in kN/m, for which distance does the value apply?
- I design a cross-section created in the SHAPE‑THIN program by using the RF‑STEEL EC3 add-on module, but the program shows the error message "ER006 Invalid type of c/t-part for cross-section of type General." What can I do?
- How can I consider a sway bracing in CRANEWAY?
- Where do I find the setting to specify the entered structural component as a "wall" or "slab"?
- How can I model a timber-concrete composite floor?
- How can I consider a column/support settlement in the model?
- How is the static depth d calculated in the bending design of block foundations (calculation as equivalent beams)?
- Is it possible to quickly generate a truss girder with RFEM and RSTAB?
- Can the properties, such as B. the cross -section or the surface thickness as well as the material of a surface of an existing element for a new element?
I created a very simple model to check the manual calculation. I can't get to the expected results. Could you give me an advice please?
