Wind Simulation & Wind Load Generation
With the stand-alone program RWIND Simulation, wind flows around simple or complex structures can be simulated by means of a digital wind tunnel.
The generated wind loads acting on these objects can be imported to RFEM or RSTAB.
When performing structural calculations, the derivation of forces from the roof to the foundations is one of the central tasks of the calculation in addition to the dimensioning of the cross-sections.
In SHAPE-THIN, you can import cross-section geometries that are available as contour or centroid layouts in DXF format and use them as a basis for modeling.
DIN EN 1998-1 with the National Annex DIN EN 1998-1/NA specifies how to determine seismic loads. The standard applies to structural engineering in seismic areas.
In RFEM and RSTAB, you can import DXF files via the import function. These DXF files can be used as the basis for modeling a structural system.
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.
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.
As of Version X.04.0024, there is an additional new feature in RF‑/FOUNDATION Pro: You can save the foundation dimensions for all five foundation types as foundation templates in a user-defined database and use them later in other models.
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. Furthermore, you can use these cross‑section lists for the optimization process in the design modules. For all cross‑sections in the list, the modules then perform the design for all concerned members with the provided internal forces, and then the programs display the cross‑section with the best possible design ratio.
