Colors for Compression and Tension

Helpful Questions & Answers

  • Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What is the reason for changing the colors for compression and tension in RFEM 6 and RSTAB 9 with respect to previous program versions? Since that time, compression has been red and tension has been blue.

Answer

The result colors of member components have been adjusted to the multicolor display of the surface results. The multicolor display is based on a color spectrum that runs from blue to red. Blue represents the minimum and red the maximum. Similarly, the two-color member result display now shows the negative values in blue and the positive values in red. When switching to the multicolored member result display, this logic also applies, and the small (negative) values remain in the lower blue segment of the spectrum while the large (positive) values are in the upper red segment of the spectrum.
