Modeling | Loading RFEM RSTAB 5.xx 8.xx

I have generated a trapezoidal area load. When displaying the load separately, I can only see constant loads on members. How can I change that?

Answer

The reason is that the 'Correction of Generated Loads' is inactive and thus, only intermediate values are determined. To change that, select the 'According to moment equilibrium of total loads and generated member loads' option in detail settings of the load generator (see Figure).

You can find more information about the load correction in Chapter 11.8.1 of the RFEM or RSTAB manual.
