Question

Can I define a beam with a specific reinforcement in RFEM and then obtain design of this reinforcement with the utilization?

Answer

Yes, this is possible by using RFEM and the add-on modules RF‑CONCRETE Members and RF‑CONCRETE NL. For RSTAB, the CONCRETE add-on module is required.

In the design modules of RFEM or RSTAB, you can define "Provided Basic Reinforcement" and perform a nonlinear calculation in the ultimate limit state for this reinforcement.

As a result, you obtain the utilization ratio from the nonlinear calculation assuming the provided longitudinal reinforcement.

Note:
The nonlinear calculation is already included in the CONCRETE add-on module for RSTAB. In RFEM, the RF‑CONCRETE NL add-on module is required.
