Displaying Normal and Shear Stresses

  • Knowledge Base

Tips & Tricks

In RFEM version 5.04.xx, there is a new feature of a sophisticated graphical display of normal and shear stresses on members. It is only available for the licensed RF‑STEEL add‑on module.

Similarly to a surface model, this feature allows you to easily visualize the tension and compression areas as well as the exceeding stresses for further evaluation and design.
