I cannot graphically display a variable polygon load on a surface correctly. It is not clear which load is actually applied. Is there an optional display option for this?


There is an option for this in the Results navigator of RFEM 5.

After the calculation of a load case or a CO, you can switch to the Results navigator and select the result type "Load Distribution".

Thus, the load applied in the respective element can be displayed. This can also be used very well for a graphical documentation of the load and printed as a graphic in the report.
