Programs for Concrete Structures

Helpful Questions & Answers

  • Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Which programs and add-ons are suitable for concrete structures?

Answer

Both RFEM and RSTAB provide the solution. There is a design add-on available for the European and international standards that can facilitate your daily work in structural concrete design.

Main Programs RFEM and RSTAB

The main programs RFEM and RSTAB are used to define the model with its properties and actions. For concrete structures, RFEM is clearly the first choice: In addition to spatial frame and truss structures, you can also model plate, wall, and shell structures here.

Available Standards

  • EN 1992 (Eurocode 2)
  • ACI 318 (US standard)
  • CSA A23.3 (Canadian standard)
  • SP 63.13330 (Russian standard)

Add-on for Concrete Structures

The Concrete Design add-on allows you to perform the ultimate and serviceability limit state design checks according to the standards listed above. The stability analysis according to the equivalent member method (nominal curvature method) can be carried out for rectangular or circular cross-sections. The design add-on also covers the punching shear design checks for the surfaces with nodal, line, and surface supports.

The scope of functions of the add-on includes the design check for limiting the deflection of reinforced concrete components. The analytical deformation analysis takes into account the different cross-section states "uncracked" and "cracked" (state I / state II).
