Drop Panel Design for Reinforced Concrete Slabs

Helpful Questions & Answers

  • Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

How can I model a thickened area of my concrete slab in RFEM such as a drop panel?

Answer

Yes, this is possible and can be done by adding in an opening in the slab and then place a thicker slab within the opening. Then the column would connect to this thicker slab along with an average region and FE mesh refinement to eliminate singularities. This can be designed within the RF-CONCRETE Surfaces add-on module.


The punching shear design module RF‑PUNCH Pro does not have the ACI or CSA standards implemented so the solution above is an alternative to this.
