The font size of the color scale can be changed in the "Graphic Printout" dialog box. This dialog box can be opened in the work window of RSTAB/RFEM or, alternatively, the printout report, as described below.
Option 1 - Graphic printout from the work window of RSTAB/RFEM
You can select the "Print graphic" option in the "File" menu. The "Graphic Printout" dialog box appears.
Option 2 - Graphic printout in the printout report
Select the graphic (s) you want to edit in the navigator. You can then select the "Settings" sub -item in the "Edit" menu. The "Graphic Printout" dialog box appears.
In the "Graphic Printout" window, you can find the "Text Factor" item in the "Size" tab of the "Color Scale" tab. (See figure.) There you can reduce or increase the scaling factor to reduce or increase the font size of the color scale.
If the model contains members with elastic foundations, the contact forces and contact moments are displayed numerically in Table 4.7.
To control the graphical display of results, select the Members check box in the Results navigator.
Yes, the load can be entered in RFEM as a surface load. In the Edit surface load dialog you can find the command Generate force from shrinkage ... As a result, the user can obtain internal forces from shrinkage.
It is not necessary to enter a load to take shrinkage into account in the assessment in RF-CONCRETE Surfaces. The RF-CONCRETE Surfaces add-on module automatically loads the shrinkage load itself.
Elements that lie completely or partially on top of each other can be found with the model check for overlapping elements. To open the model check, select Tools → Model Check → Overlapping Elements in the menu.
If the control detects overlapping elements, they are displayed in a dialog box sorted by groups. The current group is indicated by an arrow in the work window (Figure 1).
The element pairs can be exported to MS Excel or created as visibility. With the visibilities created in this way (Figure 2), the relevant elements can be found and deleted very quickly in the profile.
After creating a model with the model generator, it is not possible to adjust the model retroactively using the model generator.
However, the dialog entries of the model generator can be saved as a template and used again later. In this way, adjustments can be made to the imported template and thus the model can be recreated. Figure 1 shows how to save and Figure 2 how to import the generator data.
AnswerThe problem is in the differential smoothing of results. You now have interpolation set by plate, so the values are interpolated regardless of the adjacent plate.
AnswerThe information on 15 minutes for fire resistance can be switched on in the print log using the Edit/Select menu, where the Details chapter of RF-TIMBER Pro is switched on (because in the Details dialog the minute for fire is entered).
In RFEM, built-up sections called Castellated Beams are available in the cross-section library. They allow you to place openings in the web of sections such as W-shapes for example. The layout of the openings is parametric where the diameter and spacing can be adjusted. These cross-sections can further be designed in the RF-STEEL AISC add-on module.
You can then set separate cross-sections for the start and end of the member allowing you to create a tapered section.
AnswerParameters for shrinkage and creep can be found in Table 1.3 in the last column of the table Shrinkage/creep coefficients.
AnswerYou can influence the position of the imported model using the Edit Model dialog directly in RWIND Simulation.

Wind Simulation & Wind Load Generation
With the stand -alone program RWIND Simulation, you can simulate wind flows around simple or complex structures by means of a digital wind tunnel.
The generated wind loads acting on these objects can be imported to RFEM or RSTAB.
“Thank you very much for the useful information.
I would like to pay a compliment to your support team. I am always impressed how quickly and professionally the questions are answered. In the industry of structural analysis, I use several software including service contract, but your support is by far the best.”
