Model to Download
Question: I get a message saying that my material does not meet the requirements of the current standard. How can I correct it?
Answer: Generally, you can create and use your own materials.
However, when entering data into the material library, you should ensure that they can also be used in the add-on modules. The specific weight has an impact on the design and on the formulas available there.
If you set the specific weight to 0 when creating a user-defined material, this material cannot be designed in the add-on module.
The specific weight of the material created should be adjusted in the material library, for example, for lightweight concrete only. If you do not want to consider the specific weight and thus the dead load as loads, you can set this to 0 in the "Edit Material" dialog box.
The material model Orthotropic Masonry 2D is an elastoplastic model that additionally allows softening of the material, which can be different in the local x- and y-direction of a surface. The material model is suitable for (unreinforced) masonry walls with in-plane loads.

- How can I view the depth of the concrete compression zone in RF‑/CONCRETE?
- How do you define the descriptions of various reinforcement results,such as the required reinforcement?
- How can I display the vertical deformation of a column in state II? I cannot find this setting for the serviceability limit state design.
- For the design of a ring beam, I usually have Mz moments, which causes the formation of the compression and tension zone on the right and left of the cross-section. However, the reinforcement in CONCRETE is arranged at the top and bottom of the cross-section. How can I set the reinforcement to be arranged on the right and left?
- When calculating deformations in RF‑CONCRETE Members, I see inconsistencies in the deflection diagram. Why?
- In connection with the analytical SLS calculation, I get implausibly large values for the crack width and deformation in the RF‑CONCRETE add-on modules. What is the cause and how can I fix the problem?
- Is it possible to adjust the initial values of the temperature courses entered for the fire resistance design? For example, I would like to adjust the initial value of the moisture content.
- Is it possible to take a user-defined national annex as a basis for concrete design?
- Regarding a nonlinear analysis of reinforced concrete, is there any feature in the program that increases the load until failure? Or is there any way how to describe the load increment until failure?
