How can I apply wind and snow loads on my model according to the standard?


In RFEM/RSTAB, there are various load generators available under "Tools → Generate Loads" that you can use to generate snow and wind loads according to ASCE, EN, DIN, and CTE (see Figure).

For models that do not comply with the preset standard concept, you can create load specification by using the regular loads (for example, member loads from surface loads).
