How do you perform the fatigue design for reinforced concrete and prestressed concrete? I have found a result combination of the type fatigue, but cannot find the design in the add-on modules.

Answer

The design is currently not implemented in the RF-CONCRETE Modules. In RF-CONCRETE Members or Surfaces, you can determine the input parameters for the design, such as the reinforcing steel stress. The design itself currently has to be performed outside the program.

For prestressed concrete design, the program in the RF-TENDON Design add-on module implements the fatigue design according to EN 1992-1-1 6.8.5. For this purpose, use the result combination of the Type Fatigue.
