When starting PLATE-BUCKLING as a stand-alone program or as an add-on module within RFEM/RSTAB, the 'from RFEM' or 'from RSTAB' field remains grayed out.

Answer

If the add-on module PLATE-BUCKLING is not opened as a stand-alone version, but via RSTAB or RFEM, the panels (c/t parts of a member cross-section), as well as the respective load cases in PLATE-BUCKLING of the RSTAB or RFEM Models, can be loaded (see picture).

In case that no suitable cross-sections of PLATE-BUCKLING will be found in the model file of RFEM/RSTAB, the field for importing the buckling fields remains inactive.
