Wind Simulation & Wind Load Generation
With the stand -alone program RWIND Simulation, you can simulate wind flows around simple or complex structures by means of a digital wind tunnel.
The generated wind loads acting on these objects can be imported to RFEM or RSTAB.
The add-on modules for the design of member components according to national, European and international standards display design results in tables as well as graphically as a diagram on the framework.
In RFEM, it is possible to display the resultant of a section or a release. This post explains which part of a cross-section area is referred to. The easiest way would be to apply the resultants to a section edge of the area. However, since a section may continue through several areas with different local coordinate systems, the determination by means of a section edge is not possible.
In RF-/FOUNDATION Pro, reinforcement drawings are displayed after designing the foundation, where you can record all necessary structures of the reinforcement steel.
The “4.0 Results - Summary” table displays the infinity norm at the end of the load case results. The norm is used to estimate the largest eigenvalue of a structure. The largest eigenvalue of a structure is estimated by the numerical analysis, as the accurate determination can be very time-consuming.
For checking purposes or for presentations, for example, there is an animation function in RFEM and RSTAB.
You can make various settings in order to achieve a clearly‑arranged display of the result values. For example, some users may not want the white background in text bubbles. You can adjust the background in “Display Properties” using the option Transparent and Background color.
By means of result combinations, it is possible to create, among others, the envelopes for internal forces and deformations. Thus, the user can quickly find the maxima and minima for the later design.
The results from RF‑CONCRETE Surfaces can be documented in tabular form in the printout report.
Sections are an excellent way to display and evaluate results clearly. In the section dialog boxes of RFEM and RSTAB, you can display several result types at the same time.
When designing many members in one design case, it is sometimes difficult to recognize the governing designs. To improve the overview and to display the relevant designs in a compact way, you can use the filter options under the result tables. These are included in all design modules of steel, aluminum and timber structures in RFEM and RSTAB.
