The design ratio of the cross-section check is different for the RF-/STEEL and RF-/STEEL EC3 add-on module. What is the reason?

Answer

Cross-sections assigned to class 1 or 2 are designed plastically by RF-/STEEL EC3 by default. In order to be able to compare the results with RF-/STEEL, please activate the elastic design of class 1 and 2 cross-sections (Figure 2) in the Details of RF-/STEEL EC3.

Please also check whether the partial safety factors γ for the resistances of the cross-sections are defined identically in both add-on modules (Figure 3 and 4).
