Is it possible to create load combinations manually in RSTAB 8 or RFEM 5?


If you want to create the load combinations or result combinations manually, you first have to define it in General Data of Model (see Figure 1). By deactivating the button "Create Combinations Automatically", all load combinations have to be created manually.

After that, you can use the dialog box "Edit Load Cases and Combinations" to superimpose all load combinations including the partial safety factors with each other (see Figure 2). In the "Result Combinations" tab, you can subsequently create a result envelope from these load combinations, if necessary.
