First Steps with RFEM
Is it possible to convert area loads into member loads in RFEM/RSTAB?
RFEM/RSTAB also allows you to generate member loads from area loads automatically.
You can do it i.a. using planes or cells. Go to the 'Tools' menu, point to 'Generate Loads' and select 'From Area Loads on Members via Plane' or 'From Area Loads on Members via Cells'.
Depending on the selected command, you have to define a plane by entering nodes, or you select the cells in the graphic. Find more information on the Help menu that you also can access with the F1 key.
