Product Feature

Before the calculation starts, you should check the input data using the program function. Then, the CONCRETE add‑on module searches the results of relevant load cases, load as well as result combinations. If these cannot be found, RSTAB starts the calculation to determine the required internal forces.

Considering the selected design standard, the required reinforcement areas of the longitudinal and the shear reinforcement as well as the corresponding intermediate results are calculated. If the longitudinal reinforcement determined by the ultimate limit state design is not sufficient for the design of the maximum crack width, it is possible to increase the reinforcement automatically until the defined limit value is reached.

The design of potentially unstable structural components is possible using a nonlinear calculation. According to a respective standard, there are different approaches available.

The fire resistance design is performed according to a simplified calculation method in compliance with EN 1992‑1‑2, 4.2. The module uses the zone method mentioned in Annex B2. Furthermore, you can consider the thermal strains in longitudinal direction and the thermal precamber additionally arising from asymmetrical effects of fire.
