First Steps with RFEM
Is it possible to perform automatic live load reduction in RFEM or RSTAB per the ASCE, IBC, or NBCC?
Live load reduction is not considered automatically in RFEM. RFEM and RSTAB are general FEA and framework programs. The program does not understand what is a floor element vs wall element. Only a general plate element is defined. It is not possible for the program to determine the area of a floor for live load reduction.
