I have a foundation that is supported by adjoining frost aprons (breaker bars) in one direction (X- or Y-direction). From the determination of internal forces in RFEM, I receive horizontal support forces in X- and X-direction. This is also correct. Due to the frost aprons, the foundations are supported in X-direction. Can I "switch off" or not consider a support reaction from RFEM for the foundation design in RF- / FOUNDATION Pro?

Answer

Yes, this is possible.

You can find the control in the design details of the respective design case in RF- / FOUNDATION Pro.

On the one hand, you can select the Support Load (Px, Py, Pz, Mx or My), which should not be taken into account in the design. On the other hand, you can also decide if forces or moments should only be deactivated for a certain direction or for all directions.

However, it is important that the deactivation of the support load is effective for all designs of the design case. If you want to deactivate the support load Px only for the design of sliding, but not for all other designs, you can control it with two design cases.
