Can I export a critical perimeter from RF‑PUNCH Pro to an RFEM model?

Answer

Yes, you can. It is possible to export the critical perimeter from RF‑PUNCH Pro as a line to the RFEM model. This is possible for all punching forms (supports, wall ends and wall corners). The corresponding button can be found in the result window 2.1 'Punching Shear Design' (see figure).

In the RFEM model, you will then get a line, where you can create a 'section' for further analyses, for example. Please note that the line must be integrated into the FE mesh of the surface. The setting for this can be found in the general FE mesh settings.
