Where can I see the stresses in RSTAB?


RSTAB is a pure framework program and only determines internal forces, deformations, and support reactions.

On the other hand, stresses are variable depending of the cross-section and are calculated on the stress points of a cross-section. This stress determination is performed in the RF-/STEEL add-on module by calculating the existing stresses and comparing them with the limit stresses.
