Displaying Generated Surface Loads on Frameworks
Tips & Tricks
In RFEM 5 and RSTAB 8, you can generate surface loads like wind and snow by means of the implemented load generator. On frameworks, these surface loads are also displayed as surface load in the graphic by default.
To quickly and easily control the applied load or the load on each individual member, you can use the option for the separate display of loads. To do this, select the respective check box in the “Display” navigator as shown in the picture.

- How can I use the COM interface to B. delete all nodes or members in a model?
- Is it possible to keep the results from RWIND Simulation when deleting the FE mesh if I only adjust materials or support conditions?
- How can I change the colors of the selection and preselection?
- Is it possible to make the generated member loads from area loads via plane to act eccentrically on the member cross-section?
- After the calculation in the RF‑/DYNAM Pro - Equivalent Loads add-on module, the size of my file has increased significantly. The performance has worsened enormously. What could be the reason for this?
- Why are my imperfections displayed graphically in different ways and can I adjust the display?
- What happens with the programs and add-on modules in the case of the timeout of a network license? And how can I increase the timeout?
- Why is it not possible to select a load case for design in the RF‑/STEEL add-on module, although it is defined in RFEM/RSTAB?
- Does the load generation also work for curved members?
- What are the possible effects of renumbering elements on the printout report and the add-on modules?
