Why are the results of the load cases,for example, the load case of dead load, not identical with the first construction stage in the RF‑/STAGES add-on module?

Answer

If there are the identical settings defined in the main program, the missing consideration of the material-related partial safety factor in the load case is often the reason (Figure 01).

In the RF‑/STAGES add-on module, all calculations are always carried out in consideration of the partial safety factor. If this is not considered, it must be set specifically for the material.
