  1. Extending National Annexes of Eurocode 2

    Extending National Annexes of Eurocode 2

    The number of National Annexes to Eurocode 2 for the design of reinforced concrete cross‑sections has been extended in SHAPE‑MASSIVE 6.54. Therefore, the following NAs of EN 1992‑1‑1:2004 + AC:2010 are available.

  2. Creating Short Printout Report

    Creating Short Printout Report

    The cross-section properties software SHAPE‑THIN and SHAPE‑MASSIVE can be used to determine the properties of general thin‑walled or massive cross‑sections. These cross‑section properties are also available for further analyses in RFEM and RSTAB.

  3. Calculating Prestressed Hollow Core Slabs with RFEM 5 and RF-TENDON (Design)

    Calculating Prestressed Hollow Core Slabs

    Precast prestressed hollow core slabs consist of composite, uniaxially stressed non‑solid slabs with a width of about 1.20 m. These elements are prestressed with pre-tension in a precast concrete plant. The precasting is usually done with slipformers. Due to the lesser self‑weight of the non‑solid slab and the existing prestress, these precast prestressed hollow core slabs show a lesser deflection than loosly reinforced slabs made of solid concrete.
