Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

AnswerFor some parameters, there are the additional [Details] buttons available in Display Properties. Open a new dialog box where you can, for example, scale the distance or the size of the object to the dimensions of the entire model.
AnswerThe font size of Title and Max/Min Info can be set in Display Properties. You can use this feature by using the menu Options → Display Properties → Edit.
AnswerFirst, make sure that the increased size of the load arrows in the display properties is also set for the printout report. You can set a value between 3 to 8 for the arrow size. If there is no improvement in spite of changing the size to the maximum value and reloading the printout report, you should update your graphics and printer driver.
AnswerThe loads are always displayed with the relative limit settings.In this way, it is ensured that the loads on very small structures, but also on very large structures can still be displayed reasonably.You can individually adjust the relative limit settings by using the display properties.
In the attached video, the reduction of the minimum relative limit for the load value display allows for the user-defined form of the graphic.
AnswerYes, this is possible with the Configuration Manager.The display properties are a component of the currently active configuration. The active configuration is shown in thick font in the Configuration Manager (Options → Configuration Manager) (see Figure 01). You can easily export the changes to the display properties of this configuration to a file by using the two buttons (see Figure 01) and import them again to another PC.If you use RSTAB, you receive a configuration file with the extension ".rsconfig" during the export. For RFEM, you receive a ".rfconfig" file.
AnswerNo, it is not possible to set the display properties for several categories (for example For each category (forBut if you have set the display properties once for a configuration on a PC, you can simply transfer it to another PC via the Configuration Manager. For more information, see FAQ 2982 using the following link.
AnswerFor some parameters, additional [Details] buttons are available in the display properties. You open a new dialog box where z. For example, you can scale the distance or size of the object to the dimensions of the entire model.
Right-click one of the values and select 'Display Properties' in the shortcut menu to get directly to the required setting: Here you can make settings in both tabs 'Screen' and 'Printout Report', for example to set transparent or coloured display of the values or the background colour of the values.
In the second tab of the panel, increase the display factor of the 'reaction forces'. This should improve the display (see Figure 01).
As an alternative, you can adjust the display properties using the menu 'Options → Display Properties → Edit': change the size of the display in the 'Results → Support Reactions → Nodal Forces' category. If necessary, you can also adjust the 'relative limit settings' in the detail settings (see Figure 02).
If you only want to display the 'Max' or 'Min value' for the RC results, you can make the corresponding setting in the Results navigator (see Figure 03).
AnswerGenerally, this function represent a "record function". After activating this option, every change will be done for screen as wekk as for the printout report. This function does not synchronize the previously modified functions. It synchronizes the changes only.

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. ”
