Why are the results from the RF-CONCRETE Columns calculation displayed sometimes only showing values of the column base, column head or column center on the individual columns?

Answer

In RF-/CONCRETE Columns, the column is designed as a 'Structural Component'.


When displaying the results 'Bending', 'Shear Force' and 'Bending - Fire Resistance', the maximum value of the design criterion is output as a single value at the governing location (x-location) of the respective design. For example, at the column base, column head, or in the center of the column.


If the result display 'Highest Design Criterion' is selected, the maximum value of all design criteria is displayed across the entire 'Structural Component' (column).
