Is the statically undetermined part of internal forces considered due to prestressing force in RF‑TENDON?


Yes, it is considered. The resulting internal forces due to prestressing can also be displayed accordingly (see Figure 01).

Primary Forces: Statically determined part of the internal forces due to prestressing

Secondary Forces: Statically undetermined part of the internal forces due to prestressing

To display the individual parts, you have to create a new result class (RC) where the prestressing load case is only selected.
