Gerhard Rehm Modeling | Loading RFEM RSTAB

Which roof and ground plan shapes can be considered with the wind and snow load generators of RFEM/RSTAB?


The load generators create a rectangular building shape. The following roof shapes are available for the roof geometry:

  • Flat roof
  • Monopitch roof
  • Duopitch roof

In the case of different building or roof shapes, you can apply the loads manually using the tool 'Generate Loads → From Area Load on Members via Plane'. The load value must be determined manually.
