Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Customer Support 24/7
The lap length design is performed according to DIN EN 1992‑1‑1, Section 8.7.3 or Section 10.9.6.3 for block and bucket foundations with the profiled bucket surface.You can optionally deactivate the design by using the [Details ...] button.An example of the lap length calculation for a bucket foundation can be found in the RF‑/FOUNDATION Pro manual, which you can download using the following link, or open it directly in the add-on module by pressing the [F1] key.
AnswerWe want to give the user as much freedom as possible for controlling the designs in RF‑/FOUNDATION Pro. The relevant designs according to EN 1992‑1‑1 and EN 1997‑1 are activated by default when creating a new case.These can be partially deactivated. On the one hand, if the design is not required due to the structural specifics of the foundation. On the other hand, due to the testing or verification purposes.However, it should be noted that it is necessary to activate at least one Geotechnical design according to EN 1997‑1.

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.
