RFEM add-on module RF-CONCRETE NL | Nonlinear reinforced concrete calculation for the serviceability limit state
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.
- For line releases, I obtain the resultants in the horizontal direction, which I cannot understand.
- How is it possible to enter the values for skin friction and pile end resistance during displaying of bored piles when designing member elastic foundations in the program?
- How can I create a curved or arched section?
- How are the signs for the release results of a line release and line hinges interpreted?
- Is it possible to manually specify a longitudinal reinforcement for 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 the message No. 47 in RFEM. What is the exact meaning of the word "integrate"? What is the resulting effect?
- How can I view the depth of the concrete compression zone in RF‑/CONCRETE?
If I do not specify any basic reinforcement in RF‑CONCRETE Surfaces, I obtain the value X as an additionally required reinforcement. If I enter this value X as the provided 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?
