3 Input Data

When you start the add-on module, a new window appears. On the left, a navigator that manages the available module windows is displayed. The drop-down list above the navigator contains the design cases (see chapter 8.1).

The design-relevant data is defined in several input windows. When you open RF-CONCRETE Members for the first time, the following parameters are imported automatically:

  • Load cases, load combinations, and result combinations
  • Materials
  • Members and sets of members
  • Cross-sections
  • Internal forces (in background, if calculated)

To select a window, click the corresponding entry in the navigator. To go to the previous or the next module window, use the buttons shown on the left. You can also use the function keys to select the next [F2] or previous [F3] window.

To save the entered data, click [OK]. You will exit RF-CONCRETE Members and return to the main program. To exit the add-on module without saving the data, click [Cancel].
