Can I display the equivalent loads resulting from earthquakes directly?

Answer

The module 'RF- / DYNAM Pro - Equivalent Loads' is used to perform the multi-modal response spectrum analysis. The equivalent loads are determined explicitly and exported to the main program RFEM / RSTAB in load cases. Load cases are generated separately for each selected mode shape and excitation direction. Such a load case is illustrated in Figure 1 as an example, but you can display the loads in these exported load cases as usual. You can find a list of generated loads in the results tables of the Dynamic Load Cases, see Figure 2. Equivalent loads are created on each finite element node (or each inner node). If the number of generated loads is too large, the graphical display is deactivated. You can adjust this setting in the 'Details' of the RF- / DYNAM Pro add-on module as shown in Figure 3.
