Why are the results in the RF-/STAGES add-on module not consistent with the corresponding load cases and combinations in the RFEM or RSTAB program?

Answer

There is no general answer to this problem. In the RF-/STAGES add-on module, however, there is a particularity regarding the structural system. Similar to some other add-on modules such as RF-/STEEL Warping Torsion, it is possible to consider the structural system detached from the main program. Thus, there are some advantages regarding the definition of structural states, etc. However, this possibility means that modifications in the main program RFEM or RSTAB are not updated automatically with these add-on modules. Such an update would inevitably lead to incorrect calculations and is therefore blocked.
