General RFEM RSTAB

Is there a module for automatic creation of action combinations?

Answer

In addition to the manual definition of load and result combinations, RFEM and RSTAB provide the option for automatic creation of combinations according to international standards. For this, select the option "Create combinations automatically" in the "Edit Model - General Data" dialog box.

Load cases created in RFEM or RSTAB are imported, assigned to standard, and then used to generate the load or result combinations in compliance with the selected standard.

In most cases, it is not really necessary to import all generated load or result combinations. Therefore, you can reduce them automatically or manually before importing them. In this way, you can minimize the calculation time.
