When defining the effective slab width of floor beams, RFEM provides the predefined widths, which are determined with 1/6 and 1/8 of the member length.
To cover the required transverse reinforcement, RF‑CONCRETE Members and CONCRETE determine the most cost-efficient transverse reinforcement as a reinforcement proposal in accordance with the predefined stirrup diameter.

When defining the effective slab width of T-beams, RFEM provides the predefined widths, which are determined with 1/6 and 1/8 of the member length. The background to these two factors is explained in detail.
The material model Orthotropic Masonry 2D is an elastoplastic model that additionally allows softening of the material, which can be different in the local x- and y-direction of a surface. The material model is suitable for (unreinforced) masonry walls with in-plane loads.
