Why are the equivalent member designs grayed out in the Stability tab when activating the plastic designs by using the partial internal force method (RF‑/STEEL Plasticity)?

Answer

Since the equivalent member designs of Eurocode 3 have different interactions than in the case of the designs according to the partial internal forces method, and the combination of these different designs is not desired for clarity reasons, RFEM deactivates the equivalent member designs when using the RF‑/STEEL Plasticity add-on module.
