Why are the equivalent member designs grayed out in the Stability tab when the plastic designs are activated by means of the partial internal force process (RF- / STEEL Plasticity)?

Answer

Since the equivalent member designs of Eurocode 3 have different interactions than are the case for the designs according to the partial internal prescalcision method and a mixture of these different designs is not desired for reasons of clarity, RFEM deactivates the equivalent member designs when using the RF- / STEEL Plasticity add-on.
