Can I apply a punching reinforcement in RF-FUND Pro to increase the penetration capacity of the foundation slab? Or is it in RF-FUND Pro possible to arrange a vertical Bügelbewehung?


No, in RF-FUND Pro it is not possible to arrange a punching reinforcement. The module first calculates the longitudinal reinforcement required for the bending measurement of the plate. From this longitudinal reinforcement of the Längsbewehrungsgrad is determined, which is recognized in the further for the determination of the punching resistance of the plate. If the punching verification is not fulfilled, you as a user on the reinforcement side can adapt the existing longitudinal reinforcement in the screens 2.4 or 2.5 in a user-defined manner and select another reinforcement proposal with a higher reinforcement content here. After a recalculation with the changed reinforcement, it is possible to check in the form 2.2 Substantive evidence whether the increase in the longitudinal reinforcement was expedient. If the enlargement of the longitudinal reinforcement in the foundation slab was not expedient, you still have the option of dimensioning with the add-on module RF-PUNCH. In RF-STANZ, punctiform punching on foundation plates can be investigated. Here, a punching shear reinforcement in the form of vertical or inclined iron can be applied.
