Load Generator

Glossary Term

Load generators are used to easily generate member, area and solid loads.

In addition to the standard-compliant determination of wind loads and snow loads according to EN, CTE, ASCE, and DIN, it is also possible to convert surface loads into member loads. Furthermore, free line loads and coating loads (for example, ice) as well as surface loads on openings can be converted into member loads. In addition, the member, surface and solid loads from motion (brake or acceleration forces et cetera) can be generated automatically.

Entering in RFEM and RSTAB

The load generators are accessible via 'Tools' → 'Generate Loads'.
