Is there a possibility to graphically check the selected effective widths when entering ribs in RFEM?


There are several ways to check the effective widths of ribs graphically.
Among other things, it can be done directly when entering a rib in RFEM, see Figure 01.

In the RF‑CONCRETE Members add‑on module, the cross-section graphic is displayed below Table 1.4 Ribs. The graphic shows the equivalent cross-section used for the design, see Figure 02.
The Reinforcement - Rendering option in Project Navigator – Results allows you to display the member, rebars, and stirrups in the RFEM work window, see Figure 03.
