Member Division

Glossary Term

Member divisions allow for a definition of points on members, on which the internal forces and deformations are displayed in the result tables and in the numerical printout.

Member division has neither an influence on the determination of extreme values nor on the graphical result diagram. RFEM internally uses a finer division. Therefore, member divisions are not necessary in most cases.
