Modeling a Pipe Surface
Tips & Tricks
Especially in plant engineering but also when analyzing details of structural systems, it may become necessary to analyze pipe cross‑sections as surface models. For this purpose, RFEM offers the option to automatically create pipe cross‑sections by means of a line.
This option allows you to define and create at the relevant line a surface of the “pipe” type by means of the material, the thickness of the surface, and the radius.
