Is it possible to use high-strength reinforcement or high-strength reinforcing steel in the RF‑CONCRETE add-on modules?

Answer

Yes, it is possible to select the high-strength steel SAS 670 for nonlinear design in RF‑CONCRETE Members. In this way, you can perform stability analysis for columns, among other things.

The steel can be selected in the Materials section of the add-on module (see Figure 01). Since DIN EN 1992‑1‑1 only allows fyk = 500 N/mm² by default, this limit must be adjusted when using SAS 670.

In General Data, you can create a user-defined National Annex where the maximum value of yield strength is increased to fyk ≥ 670 N/mm² in Point 3.2 (see Figure 02).
