RFEM 5 provides the option to define a smoothing area in the "Results" → "New Smoothing Region" menu. You can choose between a rectangular, circular or elliptical shape. With this tool, you can, for example, ‘smear’ singularities due to nodal loads in a desired averaged region.
The number of degrees of freedom in a node is no longer a global calculation parameter in RFEM (6 degrees of freedom for each mesh node in 3D models, 7 degrees of freedom for the warping torsion analysis). Thus, each node is generally considered with a different number of degrees of freedom, which leads to a variable number of equations in the calculation.
This modification speeds up the calculation, especially for models where a significant reduction of the system could be achieved (e.g. trusses and membrane structures).
- What is the difference between the dongle drivers of CRANEWAY and RFEM or RSTAB?
- Can I keep the results from RWIND Simulation even if the FE mesh is deleted, even though I only adjust materials or support conditions?
- Why do I get large differences for the design of a longitudinally stiffened buckling panel in comparison with the German and Austrian National Annex?
- How can I create a curved or arched section?
- How can I change the colors of the selection and preselection?
- How are the signs for the release results of a line release and line hinges interpreted?
- After the calculation in the RF‑/DYNAM Pro - Equivalent Loads add-on module, the size of my file has increased significantly. The performance has worsened enormously. What could be the reason for this?
- Is it possible to make the generated member loads from area loads via plane to act eccentrically on the member cross-section?
- How is the rotational stiffness of a buckling stiffener determined in PLATE‑BUCKLING?
- Why are my imperfections displayed graphically in different ways and can I adjust the display?
