Combination Scheme

Glossary Term

In a combination scheme, you can store load cases and their superposition conditions in order to reuse them for similar cases of applications.

Thus, it is possible to generate all load cases, load combinations and result combinations just by importing a combination scheme.

Entering in RFEM and RSTAB

You can create, save or import a combination scheme by using the menu 'Tools' → 'Combination Scheme'. If the load cases and load combinations have already been defined in the model, you can import them by using the 'Create New Combination Scheme' button. They can be freely modified or added in the corresponding window.
