How is the static effective height calculated in RF-BETON surfaces?


The static effective height is calculated according to the setting of the reference in Table 1.4 - Reinforcement arrangement over the edge or the axis dimension of the reinforcement. In addition, only the minimum height of the top or bottom is always used for one direction. For example, for a surface 180 mm thick, a concrete cover of 30 mm and a diameter of the bars of 10 mm (basic reinforcement), the static effective height is either 150 mm (reference to edge) or 145 mm (reference to axial dimension).
