Why Dlubal Software?
With RF-FOUNDATION Pro, it is possible to determine settlements of single foundations and resulting spring stiffnesses of the nodal supports. These spring stiffnesses can be exported into the RFEM model and used for further analyses.
Until the program version of RFEM 5.06.1103, it was only possible to export the results on surfaces in the form of isolines into a DXF file. As of the program version 5.06.3039, it is now also possible to export the results in the Isobands display option.
RFEM and RSTAB provide the export interface (“File” → “Export”) to export model and load data as well as results to Excel or in a CSV file in one step. You can select the tables to be exported in the “Export of Tables” section. The “Only selected tables” option allows you to export only a specific selection of tables. Use the [Select Load Cases and Tables for Export] button to open the corresponding dialog box.
RF‑CONCRETE Surfaces performs the ultimate and the serviceability limit state design of slabs, plates, folded plates and shells. In RFEM, the reinforcement resulting from this design can be displayed graphically on the surfaces of the structure using isolines. For the reinforcement design, it may be useful to export the results as isoline distribution in a DXF file in order to open them in a CAD application as background layers.
RFEM and RSTAB provide numerous interfaces with other programs for data exchange. In the respective programs, different names are often used for the same materials and cross‑sections. Therefore, it is necessary to convert the material and cross‑section names in order to be recognized by the program after the data exchange.
In RFEM and RSTAB, it is possible to export the calculation results to an Excel document.
A PDF version of the printout report can be created in two ways. The most common way is to use a PDF printer that must be previously installed. The printer will be controlled like a real printer.
The cross-section library in RFEM 5 and RSTAB 8 offers you the option to save particular cross‑sections in a favorites group. You can then activate the groups in the cross‑section library. Thus, you can display only those cross‑sections in the library that you defined in the list.
