First Steps with RFEM
How are surfaces defined correctly in the main window of RFEM with the layer composition? So far, I have only found the layer composition defined in the RF‑GLASS add‑on module.
In the case of the glass design using the RF-GLASS add-on module, the layer composition is defined in the add-on module (Window 1.2). The layer composition in the main window of RFEM is irrelevant in this case as the add-on module creates a temporary calculation model during the calculation. It is only important to define the Glass surface stiffness (see the figure).
The same applies to the support of the pane. This is also defined completely in RF‑GLASS.
On our website, you can find an interesting webinar about the "Design of Glass Structures in RFEM" using RF‑GLASS.
