In RF-CONCRETE Members, I get an error message saying that the reinforcement area cannot be designed. What is the reason for this message?


Please select only members with a reinforced concrete cross-section in the input dialog box 1.6 for the design. If selecting members made of steel (e.g.), you will get the corresponding error message.

Figure 01 - Message No. 2379 - Invalid Material Data

In case you select 'All Members', the members with a steel reinforcement area are automatically removed from the design.
