  1. Selecting the Definition Type for Concrete Stiffness Modification According to the ACI 318-14

    Concrete Stiffness Modification in RFEM According to ACI 318-14 and CSA A23.3-14

    In accordance with Sect. 6.6.3.1.1 and Sect. 10.14.1.2 out of the ACI 318-14 and CSA A23.3-14 respectively, RFEM effectively takes into consideration concrete member and surface stiffness reduction for various element types. Available selection types include cracked and uncracked walls, flat plates and slabs, beams, and columns. The multiplier factors available within the program are taken directly from Table 6.6.3.1.1(a) and Table 10.14.1.2.

  2. RF-CONCRETE Members - Longitudinal Reinforcement

    Reinforced Concrete Column Design per ACI 318-14 in RFEM

    Using RF-CONCRETE Members, concrete column design is possible according to ACI 318-14. Accurately designing concrete column shear and longitudinal reinforcement is important for safety considerations. The following article will confirm the reinforcement design in RF-CONCRETE Members using step-by-step analytical equations per the ACI 318-14 standard including required longitudinal steel reinforcement, gross cross-sectional area, and tie size/spacing.

  3. Figure 01 - Reinforced Concrete Section: Stress and Strain Diagram

    Reinforced Concrete Beam Design per ACI 318-14 in RFEM

    Using RF-CONCRETE Members, concrete beam design is possible according to ACI 318-14. Accurately designing concrete beam tension, compression, and shear reinforcement is important for safety considerations. The following article will confirm the reinforcement design in RF-CONCRETE Members using step-by-step analytical equations per the ACI 318-14 standard including moment strength, shear strength, and required reinforcement. The doubly reinforced concrete beam example analyzed includes shear reinforcement and will be designed under the ultimate limit state (ULS) design.
