ACI 318 for RFEM/RSTAB Module Extension
Extension of Reinforced Concrete Design Modules with Design According to ACI 318
ACI 318 for RFEM/RSTAB extends the range of standards for reinforced concrete design with the American standards ACI 318-11, ACI 318‑14, and ACI 318-19 for the following add‑on modules:
The material library already includes the American types of concrete and reinforcing steel available for design. However, you can always define other materials for the design according to ACI 318.
The units used for the reinforced concrete design according to ACI 318 are adjusted to the US customary system by default.
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.
- Which programs and add-on modules by Dlubal Software are available for reinforced concrete structures?
- How can I change the size of reinforcement bars from the American code (#3,#4, and so on) to millimeters in RF‑CONCRETE Members while using ACI?
- Is it possible to perform a calculation in RF‑CONCRETE Members or RF‑CONCRETE Columns with user-defined material (yield strength)?
- 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 whose origin lies, for example, in the global zero point 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?
