In RF-CONCRETE Members, I get an error message saying that the steel cross-section is not designable. What is the reason for this message?


Please only select the members with the reinforced concrete cross-section for the design in Window 1.6. If selecting members that are made of steel, for example, you will get the mentioned error message.

Figure 01 - Message No. 2379 - Invalid Material Data

If you select "All Members," the members with the steel reinforcement area are automatically removed from the design.
