In RF-PUNCH Pro, you have different options to determine the punching loads on wall corners and wall ends on the basis of the RFEM surface internal forces.
Setting for automatic determination and consideration of the surface load within the critical perimeter
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.
I have installed Halfen HDB 13.60 on my PC. The version does not seem to be compatible with RF-PUNCH Pro anymore. The interface does not work. I am using version 5.26.02 of RFEM.
- Where in RF‑PUNCH Pro is the direction of the individual reinforcement layers displayed?
- What defines the dimensions "Length of Reinforcement" and "Width of Reinforcement" of the longitudinal reinforcement in RF‑PUNCH Pro? Is the anchorage length included?
- When should the punching load be determined with the (un)smoothed distribution of the shear forces at the critical perimeter?
- How can I graphically display the determined load increasing factors ß from the RF‑PUNCH Pro calculation?
- I would like to perform punching shear design on a column with downstand beams as a wall corner or wall end. However, the module applies an internal column. Is it possible to adjust it?
- 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?
- I have entered a line support with "Wall in Z," but I cannot select the wall end for the design in RF‑PUNCH Pro. Why?
