Changing Boundary Lines of a Surface
Tips & Tricks
If the geometry of a surface, for which you must remove some of the existing boundary lines, changes subsequently, you don't need to redefine the surface.
By double-clicking the relevant surface, you open the “Edit Surface” dialog box. You can use the pick function to select the boundary lines. If lines that are already in the list are selected again, they are removed from the list. This option allows you to save a lot of time, especially for geometrically complex surfaces with many boundary lines.

The material model Orthotropic Masonry 2D is an elastoplastic model that additionally allows softening of the material, which can be different in the local x- and y-direction of a surface. The material model is suitable for (unreinforced) masonry walls with in-plane loads.
- Is it possible to set user-defined values when viewing solid stress results?
- The calculation of my model results in unrealistically high stresses at many locations. What is the reason?
Is it possible to change the font size in the result diagrams window?
- Can I use surface releases to separate two overlapping surfaces?
- When should the punching load be determined with the (un)smoothed distribution of the shear forces at the critical perimeter?
- I would like to perform the punching shear design on a column with connected downstand beams as a wall corner or Perform wall end. However, the module applies an internal column. Is it possible to adjust it?
- I am getting the message that my material does not meet the requirements of the current standard. How can I correct this?
- Is it possible to design bidirectional ribbed plates, unidirectional ribbed plates, or hollow core slabs in RFEM?
- Why are the values of a column base, head or center on the individual columns only displayed partially for the results from the calculation in RF‑CONCRETE Columns?
- I am trying to manually check the deformations from the CRANEWAY add-on module. However, I obtain great deviations. How to explain the differences?
