ACI 318 for RFEM/RSTAB Module Extension
Extension of Reinforced Concrete Design Modules with Design According to ACI 318
ACI 318 for RFEM/RSTAB extends the range of standards for reinforced concrete design with the American standards ACI 318-11, ACI 318‑14, and ACI 318-19 for the following add‑on modules:
The material library already includes the American types of concrete and reinforcing steel available for design. However, you can always define other materials for the design according to ACI 318.
The units used for the reinforced concrete design according to ACI 318 are adjusted to the US customary system by default.
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.
- Which programs and add-on modules by Dlubal Software are available for reinforced concrete structures?
- How can I change the size of reinforcement bars from the American code (#3,#4, and so on) to millimeters in RF‑CONCRETE Members while using ACI?
- Is it possible to perform a calculation in RF‑CONCRETE Members or RF‑CONCRETE Columns with user-defined material (yield strength)?
- How can I create a curved or curved section?
- How are the signs to be interpreted for the release results of the line release and line hinges?
- Is it possible to manually specify a longitudinal reinforcement for the design in RF-PUNCH Pro?
- Can I simulate the cracked state of a concrete cross -section for a bending beam with the "Isotropic Nonlinear Elastic 1D" material model?
- Why is the deflection of the reinforced concrete floor sometimes greater when selecting a larger basic reinforcement?
- I have a question about message no.47 in the RFEM program. What is the exact meaning of the word integrate? What is the resulting effect?
If I do not specify any basic reinforcement in RF-CONCRETE Surfaces, I get the value X as additionally required reinforcement. If I enter this value X as the existing basic reinforcement, I correctly do not get any additional required reinforcement.
However, if I enter a lower value than the determined required total reinforcement as the basic reinforcement, the additionally required reinforcement is increased in such a way that the originally required reinforcement content is exceeded. Why?
