Can the RFEM 6 Concrete Design add-on automatically design member and surface reinforcement?


In the current state of RFEM 6, the user must manually define the shear and longitudinal reinforcement for both members and surfaces. This is considered the "Provided Reinforcement" within the Concrete Design add-on. The add-on calculation will then determine the "Required Reinforcement" needed from the analysis and further output the "Not Covered Reinforcement". The user must manually apply additional reinforcement if the "Required Reinforcement" is not met. 

It is planned for the future to have an automatic design of the member and surface reinforcement rather than only the manual input option.
