First Steps with RFEM
QuestionCan I also apply user-defined loads in RX-TIMBER?
AnswerYes, it is possible. In the "Loads" input window of the add -on module, you can use the "Display Generated Loads or Define Additional Loads" button (see Figure 01). If you want to delete the automatically generated loads, consider the respective value as 0.0 in "1.6 Loads". Then you can fill the empty load cases manually.

The stresses in the cross‑section of the member are calculated in the so‑called stress points. These points are set at such locations in the cross‑section, at which the extreme values for the stresses due to the loading types can occur in the material.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
- Which Dlubal Software programs can I use to calculate and design timber structures?
- Can I also apply user-defined loads in RX-TIMBER?
- How can I change the language in the RX‑TIMBER add-on module?
- I design timber components. The deformations of load combinations deviate from the manual calculation exactly by the factor of the material partial safety factor. Why?
- How can I run the RX‑TIMBER Frame plugin? I did not find it in the Add-on Modules menu nor in Project Navigator - Data.
- I have a question about the results of the serviceability limit state design: How is the increment of the dead load by the factor 1.8 and the imposed load by 1.48 explained in the result combinations for the SLS design?
- Where can I adjust the effective length lef according to Table 6.1 of Eurocode 5 in the TIMBER Pro add-on module?
- Is it possible to display more values for the stress distribution over the layers in RF‑LAMINATE?
- I would expect the results from my load combination (CO) set to a linear analysis to equal the summation of the results from my load cases (LC) also set to a linear analysis. Why do the results not match?
- How can I design dowel-laminated timber (DLT) or nail-laminated timber (NLT) in RFEM?
