Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

AnswerIn the add-on module, the shear design is performed in the following sequence:1. VEd/VRd,c
3. VEd/VRd,pIn the course of VEd/VRd,max, the inclination of the concrete strut is determined, and in the course of VEd/VRd,s, the reinforcement amount is determined iteratively.If VEd/VRd,max is not fulfilled in the design process, the subsequent design of VEd/VRd,s is not performed and the design criterion VEd/VRd,c is displayed.
In the module, there are the options for reinforcement, which has to be taken into account for the shear resistance analysis. The shear force resistance VRd,c is affected by the applied longitudinal reinforcement. By using the options, you can specify which longitudinal reinforcement should be used to perform the check of shear resistance. The check of shear resistance can be performed by applying the following reinforcement:
- Calculated required reinforcement
- Maximum value from required or provided reinforcement
- Automatic increment of the longitudinal reinforcement so that the shear reinforcement is avoided
For example, if you select the second option and avoid the shear reinforcement with the basic reinforcement, then the basic reinforcement is selected and resulted as the required reinforcement.

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. ”
