# Is it possible to parameterize models and loads with RFEM and RSTAB?

If the projects or individual components of a model resemble each other, it is reasonable to parameterize the model or the components. It is also possible to use formulas for the individual 'parameters'. If a parameter in the respective formula is changed, the model is adjusted in the background.

There are diverse variables available for the parameters, such as cross-sections, loads, angles, lengths, surface thicknesses (see the figure).

Under Downloads below, you can find an example file with the parameterized model of a simple structure.
