Is it possible to carry out a design without additional reinforcement in RF-CONCRETE Surfaces?

Answer

Yes, it is possible.


You can do this by selecting the checkbox next to 'Use Required Reinforcement for Design of Serviceability' in the input dialog box '1.4 Reinforcement', 'Longitudinal Reinforcement' tab.


Thus, the module places the entire reinforcement required for the ultimate limit state design and/or serviceability limit state design in the reinforcement layout.

The results output 'Additional Reinforcement' is omitted after designing in the results windows in the add-on module as well as in the printout report.

The option "Use Required Reinforcement for Design of Serviceability" can be combined with the option 'Increase Required Longitudinal Reinforcement Automatically for Serviceability Limit State Design'.
