Imposed Nodal Deformation
The imposed deformation can be defined for each of the six degrees of freedom, but only in the direction in which the node has a support.
Imposed displacements have a positive effect if pointing in the direction of the positive axes of the respective coordinate axis system. Positive imposed rotations act right-handed about the corresponding positive axis of the nodal support.
Entering in RFEM and RSTAB
Imposed nodal deformations can be entered and defined using the menu 'Insert' → 'Loads' → 'Imposed Nodal Deformations' or using the Data navigator.
