When calculating an RF-/JOINTS Steel - Column Base case, I get the message No. 48335 saying that the bending moment Mz exceeds 5% of the plastic moment resistance. What does it mean?

Answer

The analysis of a rigid column footing is performed according to EN 1993-1-8 in the RF-/JOINTS Steel - Column Base add-on module. The standard only provides for simple bending in the design format. The design can be performed for compression only, tension, simple bending, or a combination of bending and tension, or bending and compression. If the note is confirmed with 'Yes', the add-on module performs all designs neglecting the unsupported internal force Mz.
