Reduction of Loads Generated in RF-MOVE Surfaces Using RF-INFLUENCE
Tips & Tricks
For the reduction of loads generated in RF‑MOVE Surfaces, it is possible to consider influence surfaces of a selected point. The influence surfaces are determined by RF‑INFLUENCE. This procedure is useful in cases where only unfavorable acting loads should be considered. Depending on the unfavorable action, you should select the positive or negative direction.
In the example shown in the figure, there are loads to be generated on a system of two continuous panels, which cause negative deformation in the middle of the first panel. Considering this, RF‑MOVE Surfaces creates the loads only in the second panel along the selected line.
