RF-TENDON | Input
After creating RFEM model including load cases (load case of prestress without loading) and load combinations, you can define tendons in the add-on module. The material library provides various types of prestressing steel that can be modified. In the dialog boxes you can specify particular data, for example the number of used strands, the side of prestressed steel, and the slippage size.
It is possible to define straight and parabolic tendons automatically as well as manually in the vertical or horizontal plane. The load cases and combinations are assigned to time structural stages. Furthermore, you can define the position of design locations.
