I would like to enter a reinforced concrete beam that is wider at the bottom side than at the upper side. Do I have to define two separate beams and couple them? Or is there a special type of cross-section?

Answer

As an alternative to the rectangular cross-section, there is also a "rotated unsymmetric floor beam," which can be created as a cross-section by using the cross-section library.

Subsequently, this cross-section can also be designed in RF‑CONCRETE Members or CONCRETE.
