It is correct that no corresponding load cases are displayed in Table 4.13 "Surfaces - Local Deformations".However, you can find them in Table 4.4 "Members - Local Deformations", for example. See Figure 01.If you want to see the corresponding load cases for the max. deformations of a RC on a certain surface, it is possible to integrate a member into this surface. In order that this member does not influence the surface stiffness, it is recommended, for example, to use a very small cross-section.If the member has been integrated or cross-linked correctly in the surface, the table shown in Figure 01 is obtained. Figure 02 shows the corresponding deformation in the surface component.Optionally, right-click the row containing the desired result (for example, max uz ) in Table 4.4. In the shortcut menu, you can now use the option "Generate CO Acc. Selected Row" which can be used to generate a CO that contains the load cases belonging to the selected value. See Figure 03.When having executed this command, you receive a CO from the RC with the corresponding load cases. See Figure 04 with the results of the generated CO and the max. deformations in the considered field.
AnswerThe easiest way to do this is with the function "Related Objects". This can be found in the menu under Edit -> Select (see picture).
Do I have to print the corresponding tables in the report? I just want to take pictures.
AnswerIf you want to print graphics in a log, the corresponding subitem must be active in the selection of the printout log in the "Global Selection" tab, see Figure 1. As a result, the tables are also displayed.
If only images are to be printed in the log, it is necessary to deactivate the tables in the tabs, see Figure 2.
In the RF‑CONCRETE Members (RFEM) and CONCRETE (RSTAB) add‑on modules, members are not selected in Window 1.1 'General Data' but in Window 1.6 'Reinforcement'. In this window, a 'reinforcement group' is preset by default, to which all the members are assigned (see the figure).
If you unselect the 'All' option, the relevant member numbers can be entered manually or defined graphically.
To get an immediate overview of how many objects you have selected, we have implemented a new function in RFEM and RSTAB: In the shortcut menu of the selected objects, you can also see the number of the various selected elements now.
Probably, the buttons [Selection Synchronization] and [Display Selected Objects] have been deactivated in the tables window. Turn them on again (see picture 1). Then, when you select an object whose table row is marked, it will be highlighted with colors in the graphic. The same applies vice versa: When you select an object in the graphic, the corresponding row will be displayed and highlighted in the table, too.
Objects that are clicked in the Data navigator are selected in the graphic as well (see picture 2).
