Where can I activate the reduction of shear forces or moments on a support in RF‑CONCRETE Members?


You can find the setting in Window 1.5 Support.

Figure 01 - Window 1.5 Supports with Options for Reduction of Moments and Shear Forces

Here, you can enter the support width and type, and specify whether to carry out the moment redistribution, or the reduction of moments or shear forces.

Depending on the standard selected in Window 1.1, there are different options available. The option applies to RF‑CONCRETE Members (RFEM 5) and CONCRETE (RSTAB 8).
