Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Customer Support 24/7
AnswerPrevious program versions can be downloaded from the menu item 'Support and Training' of the Dlubal website (see the Figure). You can find the relevant link below this FAQ.
AnswerNo, this is unfortunately not possible.If you save the last position of your model in RFEM or RSTAB, it is done in the currently used version.However, you can also open the RFEM 5 files in RFEM 4 and the RSTAB 8 files in RSTAB 7. In this case, please pay attention to the notes in FAQ 004112 under the link below.
For this, use the "Open" command of the "File" menu in RSTAB 7.In the "Open" dialog box, the RSTAB 8 files are not visible immediately as the files for the program versions RSTAB 7 (and previous) are only displayed.In order to be able to see all files (including the RSTAB 8 files) in a specific directory or folder, you have to change the file type to "All Files" in the lower part of the dialog box. Then, you will also see the newer files for RSTAB 8 and can open them in RSTAB 7.Important: We do not guarantee compatibility when opening an RSTAB 8 file in RSTAB 7. Thus, the file or the model contained might be damaged. The module data and the results will also be deleted.The same procedure is also possible in RFEM 4.

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. ”
