Why Dlubal Software?
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.
For a frame trussed from below, compression members are to be modelled perpendicular to the inclined beam. The member length and the intersection with the horizontal beam are defined.
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.
RFEM and RSTAB offer many display options in the Display navigator. They can differ greatly depending on their function. You often have to click several times for certain changes. If you want to optimize your work, you can create user‑defined views. In these views, you can save all specified settings. The following example illustrates this principle.
The content to be displayed in the loading and result tables can be managed in the global selection of the printout report (red).
Not all structural elements of a real building are included in a structural model. As an example, we can look at a pipe that runs along a steel girder frame.
User -defined visibilities facilitate program handling. Once created, any model groups can be quickly hidden or shown. This facilitates, among other things the analysis of the results in larger 3D structures but also the creation of the report. When changing the geometry, the existing visibilities may have to be updated.
In the calculation parameters, you can set the number of member divisions for result diagrams. The effect of this setting option is shown in the following figures.
When generating member loads via plane, the program internally generates cells. These cells significantly influence the created member loads.
RFEM 5 and RSTAB 8 allow you to quickly and easily model bracings.
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.
