Can I manually create load combinations in RFEM 5 or RSTAB 8?


If you want to create load combinations or result combinations manually, it is necessary to define them in General Data of the model first (see Figure 01). By deactivating the "Create combinations automatically" button, all load combinations have to be created manually.

Then, you can use the "Edit Load Cases and Combinations" dialog box to superimpose all load combinations, including the partial safety factors (see Figure 02). In the "Result Combinations" tab, you can then create a result envelope from these load combinations, if necessary.
