Considering Roof Overhangs for Automatic Load Generation

Tips & Tricks

RFEM 5 and RSTAB 8 now allow you to consider the roof overhang in the automatic generation of loads. To do this, use the load generator to define the corner nodes of the roof geometry including the distances of the roof. In the left part of the picture, however, the load application is done without roof overhang. With this option, it is also very easy to specify the loads for a roof overhang on the gable side.
