Designing Surfaces Using Internal Forces Without Rib Component

Tips & Tricks

For the design of concrete surfaces, the rib component of the internal forces can be neglected for the ULS calculation and for the analytical method of SLS calculation, because this component is already considered in the member design. To this end, select the check box in the ‘Details’ dialog box. If no rib was defined, this function is not available.

This option allows you to avoid too high reinforcement ratios in the zone of ribs and thus to design more economically.
