4.3 Starting the Calculation

You can start the calculation in every input window of RF-CONCRETE Surfaces by clicking the [Calculation] button.

RF-CONCRETE Surfaces searches for the results of the load cases, load combinations, and result combinations to be designed. If they cannot be found, the program starts the RFEM calculation to determine the design-relevant internal forces.

You can also start the calculation in the RFEM user interface: The To Calculate dialog box (menu Calculate → To Calculate) lists the design cases of the add-on modules such as load cases or load combinations.

Figure 4.9 To Calculate dialog box

If the design cases of RF-CONCRETE Surfaces are missing in the Not Calculated section, select All or Add-on Modules from the drop-down list below.

To transfer the selected RF-CONCRETE Surfaces cases to the list on the right, click . Then, click [OK] to start the calculation.

A design case can also be calculated directly by means of the drop-down list in the toolbar: Set the RF-CONCRETE Surfaces case, and then click the [Show Results] button.
