Residential Building in Los Mochis, Sinaloa, Mexico
JCR Estructural designed this residential building located in the city of Los Mochis, in the state of Sinaloa, Mexico. The house is divided into two areas: the main one where the residential spaces are, and an independent area in the garden, for recreational use.

The structure consists of one-way concrete slabs supported by reinforced concrete columns and beams. Certain very high beams also serve as architectural elements. Likewise, several structural steel columns have been arranged that are aesthetically integrated with the exterior glass enclosures.
The largest beam has a span of 61.02 ft, supporting the slab of a terrace and generating in turn an open porch for access to the pool. This beam has a height of 61.02 in. and a width of 17.72 in. The masonry is designed structurally and the entire structure is founded on a nonlinear elastic support in the seismic zone. The model was designed with a dynamic analysis taking into account nonlinear behavior.
For the reinforced concrete design, RFEM in connection with the RF-CONCRETE add-on module was used. The design was carried out according to the American standard ACI. After the calculation, the CAD program Revit was used for further planning.

This article deals with rectilinear elements of which the cross-section is subjected to axial compressive force. The purpose of this article is to show how very many parameters defined in the Eurocodes for concrete column calculation are considered in the RFEM structural analysis software.
- I have a roof structure resting on a steel column that runs to the foundations. The column runs through a perimeter wall that supports the false ceiling. A considerable part of the load from the roof is transferred to the wall. I want the steel column to carry all the vertical loads from the roof. How can I do it?
- Are the models and presentations from Info Day 2018 freely available, and can you send them to me?
- In RF‑CONCRETE Surfaces, I obtain a high amount of reinforcement in relation to a lever arm that is almost zero. How is such a small lever arm of internal forces created?
- What is the meaning of the superposition according to the CQC rule in a dynamic analysis??
- When converting from the manual definition of reinforcement areas to the automatic arrangement of reinforcement according to Window 1.4, the result of the deformation calculation differs, although the basic reinforcement has not been modified. What is the reason for this change?
- Does the program check the lap length of the vertical stirrups of a block foundation with smooth bucket sides?
- Why do I get a discontinuous area in the distribution of internal forces? In the area of the supported line, the shear force VEd shows a jump, which does not seems to be plausible.
- Is there a possibility in RFEM to define a global polar grid with the origin lies in the global zero point, for example, and which applies to several surfaces?
- When comparing RF‑CONCRETE Columns with another design software, I get different results. How to explain the differences?
- Is it possible to perform design without an additional reinforcement in RF‑CONCRETE Surfaces?
