I would like to perform punching shear design on a column with downstand beams as a wall corner or wall end. However, the module applies an internal column. Is it possible to adjust it?


RF-PUNCH Pro tries to automatically detect the correct geometry of the node of punching shear from the model input and to specify it correctly.

Depending on the entered data, it may be necessary to adjust the preset geometry. For example, because a column is recognized on a wall corner instead of punching shear design. You can change this in Window 1.5, so that the correct punching geometry can be selected, if necessary.
