In the case of using the slow‑curing concrete (usually for thick components), you can reduce the calculated minimum reinforcement by a factor of 0.85 to apply the load due to restraint, according to EN 1992‑1‑1, Section 7.3.2.
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.
- When opening an RFEM file, the entries in RF‑CONCRETE Surfaces are lost. Is it possible?
- How can I change the colors of the graphical display of a reinforcement?
- In spite of having defined average regions, they are not considered in the design in RF‑CONCRETE Surfaces. What setting did I miss here?
- Is it possible in RF‑CONCRETE Surfaces to model a prefabricated slab or an element slab with different reinforcement layouts, for example, a reinforcement layer in a precast element and another reinforcement layer in the cast-in-place concrete extension?
Is it possible to specify shrinkage effects as loads?
Which units are specified in the result display of the support reactions (kN or kN/m)? A note about this is missing in the graphic.
In the case that the support reactions are given in kN/m, for which distance does the value apply?
- Where do I find the setting to specify the entered structural component as a "wall" or "slab"?
- The four plates, identically loaded, show different negative moments at the point of support. Is this a mistake?
- How is the static depth d calculated in the bending design of block foundations (calculation as equivalent beams)?
- Is it possible to set parameters for shrinkage and creep calculation in RF-CONCRETE Members?
