Garage Pétry à ROOST
In Roost, Luxembourg, a new building complex is being built that relates to cars. Up to six car dealerships, a parking area, and a paint shop will be built on the site. The construction project was divided into two planning phases. The first phase includes three multi-story car dealerships. They have the same supporting structure.

Dimensions of the car dealership
Schatz Engineering, a customer of Dlubal Software, was responsible for the structural and design engineering of the building complex. RSTAB was used for structural design, and Tekla Structures for the design engineering.
The three structurally identical car dealerships have the external dimensions (L x W x H) of about 121 ft x 92 ft x 43 ft.
The supporting structure consists of precast columns with molded foundations. Precast concrete supports are placed on column corbels. The walls were designed as concrete hollow walls. The floors and ceilings are made of precast concrete slabs. The roof structure and the façade substructure were designed as a steel structure.
BIM Planning with RSTAB and Tekla Structures
The project planning was carried out in Tekla Structures. The Tekla model was transferred to RSTAB using the direct interface. After performing the structural analysis, beam dimensions were updated in the Tekla model.
Tekla Structures was also used to create formwork and reinforcement drawings for the precast concrete elements, garage design, schemes, and NC data for the steel structure, among other things.

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.
- In RF‑CONCRETE Surfaces, I obtain a high amount of reinforcement in relation to a lever arm that is almost zero. How is such a small lever arm of internal forces created?
- How can I display membrane stresses in the results of RF‑STEEL Surfaces?
- What is the meaning of the superposition according to the CQC rule in a dynamic analysis??
- How is the automatic creation of c/t-parts carried out?
- When converting from the manual definition of reinforcement areas to the automatic arrangement of reinforcement according to Window 1.4, the result of the deformation calculation differs, although the basic reinforcement has not been modified. What is the reason for this change?
- I design a set of members by using the equivalent member method in RF‑/STEEL EC3, but the calculation fails. The system is unstable, delivering the message "Non-designable - ER055) Zero value of the critical moment on the segment."What could be the reason?
- Does the program check the lap length of the vertical stirrups of a block foundation with smooth bucket sides?
- Why do I get a discontinuous area in the distribution of internal forces? In the area of the supported line, the shear force VEd shows a jump, which does not seems to be plausible.
- Is there a possibility in RFEM to define a global polar grid whose origin lies, for example, in the global zero point and which applies to several surfaces?
- When comparing RF‑CONCRETE Columns with another design software, I get different results. How to explain the differences?
