Why are the values of a column base, head or center on the individual columns only displayed partially for the results from the calculation in RF‑CONCRETE Columns?

Answer

In RF-/CONCRETE Columns, a column is designed as a "structural component."


When displaying the results "Bending," "Shear Force," and "Bending - Fire Resistance," the resulting maximum value of the design criterion is displayed 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 you select the "Highest Design Criterion" result display option, the maximum value of all design criteria is displayed across the entire "structural component" (column).
