Is it also possible to specify a certain basic reinforcement in RF‑/CONCRETE Columns and use it for the buckling or fire resistance design?

Answer

In principle, RF‑/CONCRETE Columns designs the statically required reinforcement for a buckling analysis and generates a reinforcement concept on this basis.

This reinforcement concept can be used to perform the fire resistance design, for example.

As an alternative to this procedure, you can also specify a certain minimum reinforcement content before starting the calculation. You can enter the data for this in Window "1.4 Reinforcement," in the tab for the respective National Annex for EN 1992‑1‑1 (for example, DIN EN 1992‑1‑1).

A new reinforcement concept is defined on the basis of the entries specified here, and used to perform the designs.
