  • Answer

    It is correct that no corresponding load cases are displayed in Table 4.13 "Surfaces - Local Deformations."

    However, you can find them in Table 4.4 "Members - Local Deformations," for example. See Figure 01.

    If you want to see the corresponding load cases for the max. deformations of a RC on an certain surface, it is possible to integrate a member into this surface. In order to prevent this member to influence the surface stiffness, it is recommended to use a very small cross-section, for example.

    If the member has been integrated or correctly in the surface, you obtain the table shown in Figure 01. Figure 02 shows the corresponding deformation in the surface component.

    Optionally, right-click the row in Table 4.4 that contains the desired result (for example, max uz). In the shortcut menu, the "Generate CO Acc. Selected Row" option is available, which you can use to generate a CO that contains the corresponding load cases for the selected value. See Figure 03.

    When using this command, you obtain a CO from a RC with the corresponding load cases. See Figure 04 with the results of the generated CO and the max. deformations in the considered area.

First Steps

First steps

We provide hints and tips to help you get started with the main programs RFEM and RSTAB.

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.

Your support is by far the best

“Thank you very much for the useful information.

I would like to pay a compliment to your support team. I am always impressed how quickly and professionally the questions are answered. In the industry of structural analysis, I use several software including service contract, but your support is by far the best.”
