RF-CONCRETE Deflect | Input
The deformation analysis with RF-CONCRETE Deflect can be activated in the settings for the analytical serviceability limit state design in the RF-CONCRETE Surfaces module. You can also specify here the settings for long-term effects (creep and shrinkage) and for tension stiffening between concrete cracks. The creep coefficient and shrinkage strain are calculated using the specified input parameters or defined individually.
You can specify the deformation limit value individually for each surface or for an entire surface group. The allowable limit value is defined by the maximum deformation. In addition, you should determine whether the design applies to a deformed or non-deformed system.
