How are surfaces defined correctly in the main window of RFEM with the layer structure? So far, I have only found the layer structure defined in the RF-GLASS add-on module.


When designing glass with the RF-GLASS add-on module, the layer structure is defined in the add-on module (window 1.2). The layer structure in the main window of RFEM is irrelevant here, because the add-on module creates a temporary calculation model during the calculation. It is only important that the surface stiffness of the glass is set (see Figure).

The same applies to the support of the pulley. It is also defined completely in RF-GLASS.

You can find an interesting webinar about RF-GLASS on the topic "Design of Glass Structures in RFEM" on our website.
