Using Averaged Internal Forces for Design
Tips & Tricks
RF-CONCRETE Surfaces for RFEM 5 allows you to use averaged internal forces for the design of concrete surfaces.
If you define an average region in parts of a surface in RFEM, the internal forces are shown as averaged in this region. These averaged internal forces are not automatically applied for the design in RF‑CONCRETE Surfaces.
To carry out a design with the averaged internal forces, open the “Details” dialog box of RF‑CONCRETE Surfaces, and then select the option indicated in the figure.
