  1. Result Interpretation of Smooth Ranges of Result Diagrams

    When evaluating results in smooth state, it is possible to display the average and sum values. This option is also available for parts of a line, a section, and so on. By importing the graphic into the printout report, you can document these values in the structural analysis.

  2. Generating LC from RC

    A result combination (RC) combines results from the selected load cases (LC), load combinations (CO), and result combinations according to a preset combination syntax. Since a particular result may show an extreme value, depending on the combination at various locations of the structure, the RC displays the maximum and the minimum value for each result type.

  3. Optimized Design Display

    RF-/STEEL EC3 performs the classification, cross‑section designs, serviceability limit state designs and fire resistance designs of members. For each design, the program shows a result table with the relevant values and classification numbers including information regarding the respective standard clause. In order to easily identify the conjunction of various standards, there is a final design equation including all terms at the end of the table.

  4. Value Groups

    RFEM provides the option to display up to three result values of the surface results in each group. Under “Groups” in the results navigator, there are four groups already preset.

  5. Displaying Result Values

    It is possible to document the results of RF‑CONCRETE Surfaces graphically in the printout report. For this, the setting of “Values on Surfaces” is often selected in the Results navigator of RF‑CONCRETE Surfaces. There is a text bubble including a result value displayed. Depending on the settings in the Results navigator, it can be displayed either on the surface grid points or manually defined points, or in FE mesh points.

  6. Total Displacement of Result Combinations

    Total Displacement of Result Combinations

    By means of result combinations, it is possible to create, among others, the envelopes for internal forces and deformations. Thus, the user finds swiftly the maximum and the minimum internal forces for later analysis. However, you should pay special attention to a display of the global deformation ‘u’.

  7. Result Tables from RF-CONCRETE Surfaces

    Result Tables from RF-CONCRETE Surfaces

    The results from RF‑CONCRETE Surfaces can be documented in tabular form in the printout report.

  8. Exporting Results of Selected Objects

    In RFEM and RSTAB, it is possible to export the calculation results to an Excel document.

  9. Improved Result Window

    In RF‑/FOUNDATION Pro, you now have the option to design a foundation at one or several nodes of the model. If you selected several nodes for the design of the foundation, the governing design criteria for all load cases are shown in the “2.2 Governing Design Criteria” result window.

  10. Displaying Specific Results

    In RF‑/FOUNDATION Pro, you can carry out the design of a foundation at one or more nodes of the structure.
