KB 001821 | Defining Rib Widths of Downstand Beams Using Example of Two-Span Beam
First Steps with RFEM
In order to correctly design a beam or T-beam in RFEM 6 and the add-on 'Concrete Design ', it is crucial to determine the' flange widths ' for the rib members. This article describes the input options for a two-span beam and the calculation of the flange dimensions according to EN 1992-1-1.

If you want to use a pure surface model, for example, when determining the internal forces and moments, but the structural component is still designed on the member model, you can take advantage of a result beam.
- Although all the member design checks have been fulfilled, I get the "Not Covered Reinforcement" result. What is the reason?
- Where can I find the graphical results of punching shear in the concrete design? Especially the distribution of shear forces at the critical perimeter or the punching loads.
- How can I connect surfaces to other surfaces or members in a hinged/semi-rigid way? What are Line Hinges and Line Releases?
