Calculation RFEM RSTAB

RSTAB and RFEM offer the option to specify a loading factor.

Is this factor also considered in the load combinations or only used in the individual load cases?

Answer

The specified loading factor in the calculation parameters of a load case is always considered in the calculation, and thus also in load combinations and result combinations.

The same is true for the loading factor of a load combination. This factor also has an effect in the calculation.
