Modeling | Loading RFEM RSTAB 5.xx 8.xx

I have generated a trapezoidal area load. When displaying the load separately, I can see only constant loads on members. What happened and 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 picture).

For more information about load correction, see RFEM/RSTAB manual, Chapter 11.8.1.

Key words
