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


Unfortunately, this is not possible with our software.

However, you can design at least the downstand beams of a timber-concrete composite cross-section using the RF‑/TIMBER Pro add-on module. To do this, the concrete flange in the material library must be defined as a new material in the "Timber" material group.

In addition to the design of the downstand beam, this option also allows you to obtain the stresses at each point of the cross-section. The following FAQ explains the result display of stresses.

Even if this does not completely deal with the design of a timber-concrete composite cross-section, the user has at least the information about the existing stresses that can be used to perform the design.
