How do I get the largest column load in my RFEM 3D model?


The following points should be taken into account so that the calculated internal forces can be used for the design:
The model should reflect the real structure as accurately as possible. For this purpose, materials, surface thicknesses, cross-sectional dimensions, joint definitions, support conditions, etc. must be defined correctly.
The loads must be defined and applied in accordance with standards. The combinatorics can be automatically adopted by RFEM.
For internal forces of result combinations, attention must be paid to the evaluation of the correct max / min values. The maximum compressive force in a column corresponds to the minimum normal force (min N).
