For a Schöck Isokorb ® , the tension forces are conducted through the insulating layer by means of stainless steel and the compressive forces are conducted through the insulating layer by means of high-strength fine concrete reinforced with micro-steel fiber reinforced concrete with PE-HD plastic jacket. Depending on the selected type, moments and / or shear forces can be transferred. This limited force transmission must be taken into account in the structural analysis.
The technical information according to EC 2 for the Isokorb ® contains an FEM directive describing the modeling.
Basically, the modeling in RFEM can be accomplished with line hinges or line releases between the respective surface elements. We distinguish between the following:
- Line hinge
The line hinge should be on the outside (balcony). However, you can not consider nonlinearities with a line hinge.
- Line release
It is possible to enter nonlinearities. Thus, it is possible to consider the spring failure of Isokorbes ® .
The detailed procedure for entering a Schöck Isokorbes ® including model files is described in a technical article of our Knowledge Base, which you can find in the links below. Furthermore, you will find a webinar about the Isokorb ® modeling of a balcony slab.
