RF-PUNCH Pro | Input
After opening the module, the materials and surface thicknesses defined in RFEM are preset. The designed nodes are recognized automatically. However, you can modify them manually.
It is possible to consider openings of the relevant area at risk of punching shear. The openings can be transferred from RFEM or specified in RF‑PUNCH Pro so there is no effect on the stiffnesses of the RFEM model.
Parameters of the longitudinal reinforcement cover the number and direction of layers as well as the concrete cover separately defined by surface for the top and the bottom side of a slab. The next input window allows you to define all additional details for nodes of punching shear. In addition, it is possible to set punching load, load increment factor β, and the existing longitudinal reinforcement.
To facilitate orientation, a slab is always displayed with the corresponding node of punching shear. Furthermore, you can open the design program by HALFEN, the German producer of shear rails. All RFEM data can be transferred into this program for easy and effective further processing.
