AnswerYes, the data is freely available. You can find the structures in the download section of this FAQ.
AnswerIf you are using members with the cross-sections that are not known by the interface, you should use the conversion file for the cross-sections. This mapping file can be easily filled with the names of the cross-sections. In the left column of the table, write the names of the cross-sections used in TEKLA, and in the right column, write the DLUBAL names or select them from the library.Please watch the attached video.Note:
In TEKLA, you have to have the right environment. In the video, Chinese cross-sections should be transferred, so the Chinese environment has to be used in TEKLA.
AnswerFirst, you should install the latest version of RFEM 5. The current versions are: RFEM 5.20Then, replace the RFEM64.exe.config with the file attached here in the FAQ. This file can be found after the standard installation of RFEM and in the following folder:C:\Program Files\Dlubal\RFEM 5.20Then, run DLInstaller. You can find this file under the following path:C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Dlubal\DLInstallerAfter restarting the programs, the import and export to Tekla should work again.
AnswerWhen creating a load combination, the calculation type "II. Order "default. For linear systems, however, which are statically indeterminate, the results for load cases, which are calculated by theory according to the first order, can therefore differ.

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.
