Knowledge Base Articles
The stresses in a solid can be evaluated in RFEM 5 relative to the global as well as to the local axis system. The local x- or y‑axis of the solid can be oriented parallel to the axes of a boundary surface, a line, a surface, or in the direction of a user‑defined coordinate system.
Buildings made of cross-laminated timber (CLT), glued-laminated timber and OSB panels modeled with the RFEM program
The model is constructed by means of parameters for geometry and loads and regenerates when the parameters are changed.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
- How can I model and design general bolted connections with the surface and solid elements in RFEM?
- Is it possible to model and statically calculate solids in RFEM?
- I would like to model a threaded rod as a 3D solid in RFEM. Is this possible?
- How can I create a section through a solid to evaluate the results at any location?
- 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?
- Which Dlubal programs do I need to calculate membrane and textile structures?
- Does a user-defined layer composition in RF-LAMINATE need to be shared separately with other users along with the RFEM model file or is this information stored directly in the RFEM file?
- For the direction of internal forces, I have four options under the "Grouped" selection box to smooth the internal forces. Which grouping should I choose here?
- I have modeled two nodes on a surface in RFEM. The results do not show the displacement at these two nodes. How can I obtain it?
- Which add-on modules and programs do I need for laminate and sandwich structures as well as cross-laminated timber (CLT)?
