Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Customer Support 24/7
If a cell closed on all sides is detected in the structural model, it can be used for the load application. However, if the desired load range is not completely enclosed by members, the cell is not recognized by the load generator.
The "Nodes on virtual lines" function allows you to define the corner nodes of the load area manually, and thus clearly define the cell area. The cell defined in this way can then be selected as usual by using the pick function of the individual cell nodes.
AnswerIt is possible to select the values from the table by entering "&refcell" with the syntax "$table number(cell description)." Figure 01 shows a member with a length of 4.20 m. The length is shown in Table "1.17 Members" in Cell L1. This value can be used in the list of parameters or in the formula editor. For this, use the following formula for the system shown in Figure 01: $1.17(L1)
It is not possible to read out cells from the result table because of the circular reference.
AnswerThis is entirely possible with our model generator. You can open it by using the menu bar "Tools → Generate Model - Members → Bracing in Cells." If the program recognizes a closed cell, it is possible to generate a bracing for it by assigning a member type and a cross-section.

Wind Simulation & Wind Load Generation
With the stand-alone program RWIND Simulation, wind flows around simple or complex structures can be simulated by means of a digital wind tunnel.
The generated wind loads acting on these objects can be imported to RFEM or RSTAB.
“Thank you for the valuable information.
I would like to pay a compliment to your support team. I am always impressed how quickly and professionally the questions are answered. I have used a lot of software with a support contract in the field of structural analysis, but your support is by far the best. ”
