Question

Is it possible to use the add-on modules for RFEM to design concrete solids?

Answer

In RFEM, it is possible to design surfaces and members made of reinforced concrete.

Members are designed in the RF‑CONCRETE Members or RF‑CONCRETE Columns add-on module.
Surfaces are designed in the RF‑CONCRETE Surfaces add-on module (optionally with RF‑CONCRETE Deflect or RF‑CONCRETE NL).

The solids made of reinforced concrete cannot be designed in RFEM. There is currently no add-on module for designing the reinforced concrete of solids.

However, it is possible to create solids by using the "Concrete" material and determine the stresses within the solid, for example. Optionally, you can add a result beam into the solid, which is used to convert the results of the solid to member internal forces.

The result beam can be subsequently designed in RF‑CONCRETE Members or RF‑CONCRETE Columns.
