How does RF‑TENDON or RF‑TENDON Design consider the long-term losses due to creeping and shrinkage, relaxation of prestressing steel, and due to elastic deformation?


Long-term losses are considered directly before the design process in the external add-on module RF‑TENDON Design. In this case, the internal forces in the examined design sections are recalculated by applying the long-term losses. The detailed results and the individual loss components can be found under "Action Phase."
