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.
- Is it possible to apply the minimum bending moments according to DIN EN 1992‑1‑1 in RF‑PUNCH Pro?
- In RF‑PUNCH Pro, I get the message No. 58 saying that the surface load inside the critical perimeter cannot be determined for result combinations. Why is this message displayed? How can I avoid it?
- How can I create a curved or curved section?
- How are the signs to be interpreted for the release results of the line release and line hinges?
- Is it possible to manually specify a longitudinal reinforcement for the design in RF-PUNCH Pro?
- Can I simulate the cracked state of a concrete cross -section for a bending beam with the "Isotropic Nonlinear Elastic 1D" material model?
- Why is the deflection of the reinforced concrete floor sometimes greater when selecting a larger basic reinforcement?
- I have a question about message no.47 in the RFEM program. What is the exact meaning of the word integrate? What is the resulting effect?
If I do not specify any basic reinforcement in RF-CONCRETE Surfaces, I get the value X as additionally required reinforcement. If I enter this value X as the existing basic reinforcement, I correctly do not get any additional required reinforcement.
However, if I enter a lower value than the determined required total reinforcement as the basic reinforcement, the additionally required reinforcement is increased in such a way that the originally required reinforcement content is exceeded. Why?
- Why does the RF-CONCRETE Surfaces add-on module not increase the amount of reinforcement until the SLS designs have a design ratio of 1.0?
