Is it possible to design bidirectional ribbed plates, unidirectional ribbed plates, or hollow core slabs in RFEM?


Yes, it is also possible to use the RF‑CONCRETE Surfaces add-on module to design bidirectional ribbed plates, bidirectional ribbed plates, or hollow core slabs. The design is possible for the ultimate limit state.

The plates can be created as orthotropic surfaces in RFEM (see Figure 01).
