What is the best way to consider steel fiber concrete in the structural analysis software RFEM?

Answer

The "RF‑MAT NL" add-on module allows you to use the nonlinear material model "Isotropic Damage 2D/3D" in RFEM to define the stress-strain diagram for the steel fiber concrete. The internal forces and deformation can be determined in the subsequent nonlinear FE calculation.

The two links of the FAQ contain two interesting technical articles about the steel fiber concrete.
