How can I access the RWIND Simulation program from RFEM, assuming that it is possible to transfer a 3D model created in RSTAB?

Answer

RWIND Simulation is exclusively compatible with RFEM due to CFD modeling which requires a finite element calculation. The model created in RSTAB can be opened in RFEM. The wind load parameters can be defined in the RFEM dialog Simulate and Generate Wind Loads.

Figure 01 - Submenu for Access to RWIND Simulation

At the bottom of the Wind load tab, it is possible to stay and automatically generate the loads for the corresponding load cases after the CFD calculation has been run in the background.

If you would rather perform the wind simulation in RWIND, click the button Open in in the Load cases tab of RWIND Simulation.
