Is it possible to model line supports in RSTAB in order to For example, to simulate a linear foundation under a beam?


The Member Elastic Foundation feature allows elastic support of a member along its entire length.

This way, you can model foundation beams by considering soil properties, for example. If the elastic foundation is not effective in case of tensile or compressive stresses, it is possible to consider nonlinear effects in the calculation.
