The effects due to snow load are described in the American standard ASCE/SEI 7-16 and in Eurocode 1, Parts 1 through 3. These standards are implemented in the new RFEM 6 program and the Snow Load Wizard, which serves to facilitate the application of snow loads. In addition to this, the most recent generation of the program allows the construction site to be specified on a digital map, thus allowing the snow load zone to be imported automatically. These data are, in turn, used by the Load Wizard to simulate the effects due to the snow load.
- Do you provide a free viewer to open the RFEM 6 or RSTAB 9 files?
- Is the import from Microsoft Excel still available in RFEM 6 and RSTAB 9?
- How can I generate imperfections on surfaces in RFEM 6 on the basis of the governing buckling mode?
- Is it possible to manually create page breaks in a printout report?
- Can I export a response spectrum from RFEM 6 and use it in RFEM 5, for example?
- I would like to connect my masonry wall to a reinforced concrete slab. What is the best way to create a line hinge?
- How can I carry out a system diagnostics in RFEM 6 / RSTAB 9 and send it to customer support?
- I would like to perform punching design of a floor slab. I have selected nodes for the design, but they are marked as invalid. Where did I make a mistake?
- Is it possible to adjust the layout (for example, the header) in the printout report in RFEM 6 / RSTAB 9?
Where can I find the display options for results?
In RFEM 5 and RSTAB 8, they could be found in the Display navigator.
RFEM 6 structural analysis software is the basis of a modular software system. The main RFEM 6 program is used to define structures, materials, and loads of planar and spatial structural systems consisting of plates, walls, shells, and members. The program also allows you to create combined structures as well as to model solid and contact elements.
