Concrete Design | Definition of Surface Reinforcement
The properties of the connection between a reinforced concrete slab and a masonry wall can be correctly considered in the modeling using a special line hinge that is available in RFEM 6. This article will show you how to define this type of hinge by using a practical example.
- Although all the member design checks have been fulfilled, I get the "Not Covered Reinforcement" result. What is the reason?
- How do I define a member as a cantilever and not as supported at both ends for serviceability or deflection design?
- Can I define a different bar size in the RFEM 6 Concrete Design add-on other than the default bar sizes available in the drop-down?
- Can the RFEM 6 Concrete Design add-on automatically design member and surface reinforcement?
- Why are the members not valid for the Concrete Design add-on?
The structural analysis program RFEM 6 is the basis of a modular software system. The main program RFEM 6 is used to define structures, materials, and loads of planar and spatial structural systems consisting of plates, walls, shells, and members. The program can also design combined structures as well as solid and contact elements.
The structural frame & truss analysis and design program RSTAB 9 contains a similar range of functions as the FEA software RFEM, paying special attention to frames and trusses. Therefore, it is very easy to use and for many years, it has been the best choice for the structural analysis of beam structures consisting of steel, concrete, timber, aluminum, and other materials.
In the Concrete Design add-on, various designs according to international standards are possible. You can design members, surfaces, and columns, as well as perform punching and deformation analyses.
