Gerhard Rehm Results RFEM

For the results evaluation, I have created a section through surfaces of the structure. However, in the result diagram, this section is displayed longer than it is. What is the reason for this?


A section can run through a complete structure and display results on surfaces that are intersected. It is important to define which surfaces are intended for displaying results of the section. In Figure 01, a section was defined in such a way that all intersected surfaces (default setting) are displayed. In this case, both walls will be intersected and the results will be attached to the result diagram (see also Figure 02).

If you want to display the section only on certain surfaces, define the required surfaces in the 'Edit Section' dialog box (see Figure 03). Then, the section is displayed in the result diagram as requested (see Figure 04).
