Is it also possible to manually enter the load for the punching shear design in RF‑PUNCH Pro?


Yes, it is possible in Window "1.5 Punching Nodes."

Figure 01 - User-defined punching load

For example, this can be used if the determination of the punching load by using the smoothed or unsmoothed distribution of shear forces in the control perimeter is negatively affected by singularities.
