If you wanted to determine the center of a rectangle, it was previously necessary to construct a line from one corner point to the opposite one. By dividing this line, you obtain the centroid. In RFEM 5 and RSTAB 8, you now have the possibility to create a node between two points. Thus, it is sufficient to select the corner points, and then you can determine the distance in absolute or relative values.

- Normal stresses σx from axial force and bending
- Shear stresses τ from shear force and torsion
- Equivalent stresses σv with comparison to limit stress
- Stress ratios related to equivalent stresses
- Normal stress σx from unit normal force N
- Shear stress τ from unit shear forces Vy , Vz , Vu , Vv
- Normal stress σx from unit moments My , Mz Mu , Mv
How can I perform a stability/buckling analysis on a load-bearing structure?
- How can I additionally model welds for the connection of two surfaces with a contact solid?
- In connection with the calculation according to the large deformation analysis, I get significantly smaller deformations than for the calculation according to the linear static or second-order analysis. How is this possible?
- How can I deduce the axial stress and hoop stress of a circular container?
- How is it possible to consider the real cross-section geometry of member elements in RWIND Simulation?
- My aim is to mesh a circular hole plate in a mapped way. Is such a meshing possible in RFEM?
- Is it possible to use RFEM for modeling a channel that is distorted from a rectangular cross-section to a pipe cross-section?
- Is it possible to analyze the effects of an hermetically sealed object with RFEM?
- My model should be symmetrical, but the support reactions reflect an unsymmetrical loading or modeling. What can I do?
- I use rotated surfaces in my model. Now it takes a long time to open and edit the file. What can I do about it?
