Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Free rectangular loads have - compared with the ‘normal’ surface load - one disadvantage that the load graphically does not get a 'cover' and thus the load distribution is not clearly recognizable in the graphic printout.
It is possible to get by using Displaying Load Distribution in the Project Navigator - Results: This will make the 2D FE elements graphically colored, and the corresponding values will be output in the adjacent color panel.
The projection plane and the load direction are different parameters and independent of each other.
While the load direction represents the actual direction of the acting load, the projection plane, together with the corresponding coordinates of the load position, describes the plane from which the load's position is projected onto the surfaces subjected to the load.
In the "Edit Free Rectangular Load" dialog box, the graphic to the right is used for information purposes, see Figure 01.
AnswerA free rectangular load can be applied to a freely definable area of a surface. To draw a free rectangular load, select the menu Insert -> Load -> Free Rectangular loads can be inserted via the corresponding toolbar button or via the table.

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. ”
