Is it possible to design concrete solids with the add-on modules for RFEM?


In RFEM, you can design surfaces and members of reinforced concrete.

Members are designed in the add-on module RF-CONCRETE Members or RF-CONCRETE Columns.
Surfaces are designed in the RF-CONCRETE Surfaces add-on module (optionally with RF-CONCRETE Deflect or RF-CONCRETE NL).

Reinforced concrete solids can not be designed in RFEM. There is currently no add-on module for the reinforced concrete design of solids.

However, you can create solids with the material "Concrete" and select For example, you can determine the stresses within the solid. Optionally, you can insert a result beam into the solid that is used to convert the results of the solid into member internal forces.

The result beam can subsequently be designed in RF-CONCRETE Members or RF-CONCRETE Columns.
