RF-/STAGES | Entering Construction Stages
After creating the entire structure in RFEM/RSTAB, the individual structural components as well as load cases and combinations are assigned to the corresponding construction stages. For each construction stage, you can modify for example release definitions of members and supports.
Thus, it is possible to model structural modifications, as they occur by successive grouting of bridge girders or by settling of columns. The RFEM/RSTAB load cases and combinations are assigned to "Permanent Loads" and "Temporary Loads".
The defined temporary loads are superimposed by permanent loads. In this way, it is possible to determine the maximum internal forces of different crane positions or to consider temporary mounting loads available only in one construction stage.
