RF-FORM-FINDING | Input

Product Feature

The form-finding function can be activated in the General Data dialog box, tab Options. Prestress (or geometrical requirements for members) can be defined in the parameters for surfaces and members. The form‑finding process is performed by calculation of an RF‑FORM‑FINDING case.

Steps of the working sequence:

  • Creation of a model in RFEM (surfaces, beams, cables, supports, material definition, etc.)
  • Setting of required prestress for membranes and force or length/sag for members
  • Optional consideration of other loads for the form-finding process in special form‑finding load cases (self‑weight, pressure, steel node weight, etc.)
  • Setting of loads and load combinations for further structural analyses
