Adjusting Result Values for Surfaces
Tips & Tricks
For relatively large or relatively small surfaces, it can happen that the automatically created result values do not fit the model: In case of large surfaces, there can be too much result values, in case of small surfaces, too few.
The reason for this is that in RFEM the distance of the grid points is preset to 0.5 meters. This value can be changed in the "Grid" tab of the "Edit Surfaces" dialog box (see Figure 02). Thus, it is possible to change the number of grid points, or you can set the distance manually. Furthermore, the grid points can be displayed graphically before the calculation using the Display Navigator in order to better estimate the amount and the distance.
Basically, any result values can also be hidden. To do this, select the desired result values and then hide them using the context menu (see Figure 03). Filter settings are also possible using the shortcut menu.

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.
- How are the signs for the release results of a line release and line hinges interpreted?
- 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?
- In RF-/TIMBER AWC and RF-/TIMBER CSA, I receive the error that says torsion limit exceeded. How do I bypass this error message?
- I am trying to manually check the deformations from the CRANEWAY add-on module. However, I obtain great deviations. How to explain the differences?
- Can I consider a reduction of the stiffness according to the German regulation NCI NA.5.9 in TIMBER Pro?
- Why is the strength always reduced by the kmod value of 0.6 during the calculation in the RF‑LAMINATE add‑on module, although I have load combinations with variable loads?
- What should be considered when using a failure of columns under tension in the RF‑/DYNAM Pro – Equivalent Loads add-on module?
- Why is there no stability analysis displayed in the results despite the activation of the stability analysis in RF‑/STEEL EC3?
- How can I model and design a crane runway girder with Dlubal Software?
- I have selected all available members for design in RF-/TIMBER Pro. Why are tapered members not designed?
