AnswerFor example, the standard EN 1990 + EN1991-2; Road bridges could be used (see picture 1). Alternatively, one could of course also determine the combinations by hand. Further information can be found i.a. in our manual.
AnswerPlease check the entry of loads in the '1.4 Loading' dialog box in the 'Characteristic Values' tab.A possible source of the error is that you have selected individual load cases for the design (that is, for example, self-weight, wind, and so on). Or these load cases are additionally set as 'Permanent'. See Figure 01.Now, the program applies both load cases for the design of the first core width.This is not correct. The design of the first core width only requires the application of the load from one permanent action.For the design of the second core width, the load from a 'permanent and variable combination' is used. It means that you need either a load combination (CO) or a result combination (RC) for this. The entry of a load case (only wind here) is also wrong, since the favourably acting vertical component of the loading is missing. Therefore, you get too large foundations or have to enter a high loading as a 'permanent load' to meet the design.So if you should create a CO for this situation, in which the 'permanent and variable actions' are together and apply these for the design in FOUNDATION Pro, pay attention to the assignment of this CO to a 'permanent + variable action'. See Figure 02.

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. ”
