In RFEM, it is possible to modify stiffnesses for materials, cross -sections, members, load cases, and load combinations in many places.
The material model Orthotropic Masonry 2D is an elastoplastic model that additionally allows softening of the material, which can be different in the local x- and y-direction of a surface. The material model is suitable for (unreinforced) masonry walls with in-plane loads.
- What is the meaning of "Common Surfaces" in RF‑PUNCH Pro? Do I have to set anything here?
- The critical perimeter at the wall corner in my structure looks strange. What can be the reason?
- Can I design a reinforced concrete structure according to ÖNORM in RFEM?
- How can I display the results from RF‑PUNCH Pro exactly in the critical perimeter with a result value?
- Is it also possible to manually enter the load for the punching shear design in RF‑PUNCH Pro?
- Is it possible to apply the minimum bending moments according to DIN EN 1992‑1‑1 in RF‑PUNCH Pro?
- When should the punching load be determined with the (un)smoothed distribution of the shear forces at the critical perimeter?
- For wall ends and wall corners, no soil contact stresses are deducted in RF-PUNCH pro, even though the type "Foundation" has been set. It is also nowhere possible to define that the soil contact stresses should be deducted. Why is that?
- In RF‑PUNCH Pro, I get the message No. 58 saying that the surface load inside the critical perimeter cannot be determined for result combinations. Why is this message displayed? How can I avoid it?
- Is it also possible to apply a surface load inside the critical perimeter in RF‑PUNCH Pro?
