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.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
- When calculating deformations in RF‑CONCRETE Members, I get jumps in the deformation diagram. Why?
- In connection with the analytical SLS calculation, I get implausibly large values for the crack width and deformation in the RF‑CONCRETE add-on modules. What is the cause and how can I fix the problem?
- Is it possible to adjust the initial values of the temperature courses entered for the fire resistance design? For example, I would like to adjust the initial value of the moisture content.
- Is it possible to take a user-defined national annex as a basis for concrete design?
- Regarding a nonlinear analysis of reinforced concrete, is there any feature in the program that increases the load until failure? Or is there any way how to describe the load increment until failure?
- Is it possible to use high-strength reinforcement or high-strength reinforcing steel in the RF‑CONCRETE add-on modules?
- Why is there only displayed the total reinforcement in the Results navigator under "Required Reinforcement", and not the top and bottom reinforcement separately?
- The module RF-CONCRETE Members is calculating a very high required reinforcement to fulfil the requirements of the SLS checks. Is there any way to avoid such high values for required reinforcement?
- I obtain different results when comparing the deformation analysis in the RF‑CONCRETE add-on modules and another calculation program. What could be the reason for this?
- Why do RF‑CONCRETE Members or CONCRETE determine a significantly higher provided reinforcement than the required reinforcement?
