AnswerIn the printout report selection, you can add the intermediate results of the add-on module in the Reinforcement tab.
The result display of intermediate values is generally linked to the member division property. Also, member loads defined in sections in RFEM generate further intermediate results. For example, if a member load defined in sections is distributed from the member start to the member end, the intermediate results are obtained at the member end nodes.
The "Design Details" button is only available or can be selected if the required reinforcement has been selected from the ultimate limit state (ULS).As soon as the governing reinforcement consisting of ULS and SLS or only the SLS is shown in the result tables, the "Design Details" button is grayed out.You can select the design details for the serviceability limit state in Table 3.1 - Table 3.3.
AnswerIn the result tables of the add-on module, you can find all intermediate values for each wind direction, face and sector. This feature is also available in the long version of the printout report, though it can significantly increase the size of the report.
AnswerIf the result values are displayed in red, it is a kind of an error message.The defined depth z is not sufficient. The standard specifies that the depth must be calculated up to the value where sigma_Z ≦ 0.2*sigma_r. In the graphic, 0.2*sigma_r is displayed as a gray line, sigma_Z as red.The layer structure should have such a depth that both lines intersect each other.In Figure 01, the two lines do not intersect, so the values are displayed in red, and it is necessary to define the sufficient depth.
AnswerFor all designs performed in RF‑/FOUNDATION Pro, you can view and check the design details including all intermediate values.To view the intermediate results, open the result window '2.2 Governing Design Criteria'. Here, select the design type from the upper table, for example, 'Ground failure (EC 7, 6.5.2)'. A detailed table appears in the lower part of the dialog box and shows all intermediate values for this design.So you can see how the self-weight of the foundation plate is determined and applied to the respective design, for example. Or how the earth covering is considered in the design.Partial factors change depending on the design. This is also apparent from the intermediate values.

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. ”
