Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

AnswerThe result display with result values on surfaces is very helpful for this.It is already preset that only extreme values are displayed. In addition, you can specify in the Results navigator whether the extreme values of the entire model, all surfaces or solids, or all local peak values should be displayed.
AnswerYes, you can define an area in the panel by clicking the button "options". Here you can define a customized area by moving the slider. In that case the areas with higher or lower stresses have no color.
AnswerThe detailed dimensioning details can be called up in the point of usability under the individual proofs. To do this, the line with the corresponding proof must be selected and then the info button pressed (see Figure 1). The design details can also be selected in the lower part of the dialog.
AnswerFor volumes, we do not provide any internal forces in the program. The conversion of the Spannnugnen in internal forces would be very complex, since not only mx, my and mz would be present, but also the parts of the drill, mxy, myz, mxz also lateral forces and normal forces. With volume one limits oneself usually on a direct voltage evaluation. If you still need internal forces, you have the option to apply the internal forces of the volume to a rod. For this purpose the result bar was implemented in the program.
AnswerYes, it works. To do this, in the Project Navigator - Show under "FE mesh" you have to activate the item "On surface results".
AnswerIn the Show Navigator, in the Results -> section Warehouse reactions you can activate the option "Draw in XY plane"
AnswerNo, this possibility does not exist. Node deformations are always output in relation to the global coordinate system, regardless of whether the structure input was done using a user-defined coordinate system.Optionally, the output of local bar or area deformation results may help as needed.
AnswerThis depends on the choice of model type. In this case a flat system was chosen. Thus, only for this level, the relevant results are displayed because they are reduced because of the limited coordinates and degrees of freedom. If, on the other hand, a 3D system is selected as the model type, all stresses and internal forces are displayed.
AnswerFor all designs performed in RF- / FOUNDATION Pro, the design details including all intermediate values are available for viewing and checking purposes.To view the intermediate results, use result window "2.2 Standard Design Cases." Select a design from the table above, for example "Fundamental value (EC 7, 6.5.2)". The details table changes in the lower part of the dialog box and shows all intermediate values for this design.For example, how the self-weight of the foundation plate is determined and applied for the corresponding design. Or how the cover ratio is considered in the design.The partial safety designs change depending on the design. This is also shown in the intermediate values.
AnswerThe panel that appears after the calculation has been performed has a filter for displaying certain elements. Occasionally, elements may be intentionally or unconsciously removed from the results display.
It is therefore recommended that elements in the result display are missing unexpectedly before checking the filter of the panel first (see figure).
