## How do I divide a surface in RFEM?

RFEM provides two ways to divide surfaces:

1) Divide surface evenly

The requirements to split a surface evenly are that it has four sides and is convex; in other words, none of the four internal angles may be greater than 180°.
This function is accessed by right-clicking the surface and selecting "Split Surface". In the corresponding "Split Surface" dialog box, the number of divisions in each direction and the individual relative distances are entered (see Figure 1).

2) Divide the surface by means of integrated lines

If any lines are drawn within the surface plane, they may be used to divide the surface (see Figure 2). First you have to check, whether the division lines are integrated in the surface. This is normally the case due to the automatic object detection (see Figure 3). Afterwards, right-click on the surface and select "Divide Surface" to use the desired function (see Figure 4).
