Where can you change the deformation factor k def (EN 1995-1-1) or the creep coefficient φ (SIA 265) for the long-term deformations for automatic load combinatorics.


Since the fractions from creep are considered directly for the serviceability limit state design on the load combina- ride side, the service class and thus the deformation factor must also be defined in RFEM or RSTAB, independent of the design module. This is already done in the general data (see Figure 1), but you can also open the combination expressions directly (see Figure 2).
