Is it possible to perform a design for a timber-concrete composite profile?

Answer

Unfortunately, it is not possible.

However, it is possible to design at least the downstand beams of a timber-concrete composite profile with the RF-/TIMBER Pro add-on module. To do this, the concrete flange in the material database must be defined as a new material in the material group 'Timber'.

In addition to the design of the downstand beam, this option also allows you to get the stresses across the cross-section at each point. This FAQ explains the output of stresses.

Even if this does not completely deal with the design of a timber-concrete composite profile, the user has at least information about the existing stresses and can carry out the design with it.
