Is the offset dimension or the anchoring length of the longitudinal reinforcement already considered in the reinforcement proposal?


In RF-CONCRETE Members (RFEM) or CONCRETE (RSTAB), the offset dimension is taken into account by default when determining the reinforcement proposal.

The difference between You can see the required reinforcement with and without offset dimension when you see the results in the result navigator:
- A s, -z (above)
- A s, + z (below)
- A s, -z (above), comp.
- A s, + z (below), comp.

In A s, -z (above), comp. and A s, + z (below), erf. the offset dimension is included.
See also picture 1.

For the reinforcement proposal in RF-CONCRETE Members or CONCRETE, the anchoring length for a "straight iron" is considered by default. The setting can be found in the input mask 1.6. See picture 2.

The anchoring length is from A s, -z (top), erf. and A s, + z (below), erf. determined. So the offset is also included here.
