The reinforced concrete cross-section capacity volume is calculated internally, taking into account the full interaction of axial force and moments. The user can display and manipulate capacity diagrams (sections of this volume). He/she can then export these diagrams in DXF, image files or excel tables for futher processing.
The user can add any number/shape of stirrups in the cross-section - optionally resist both torsion and shear, or fully adjusted according to the needs. The θ angle of the compression strut can be optionally derived through optimization. The member shear resistance can be increased through the use of bent-up longitudinal reinforcement.
Check of stresses in concrete fibers and reinforcement for short-term and long-term effects.
The designer can choose between two approaches for the check of cracking on any member. The first, considers concrete ineffective in tension. While the second, accounts for the stiffening effect of concrete while neglecting it's tensile strength, through the utilization of rotating fictitious cracks.
Deflection check of reinforced and prestressed concrete girders accounting for the effects of cracking, concrete aging (through modification of the modulus of elasticity), creep, and shrinkage.
All detailing provisions from the code are enforced. These include minimum and maximum reinforcement areas, spacing of longitudinal bars and stirrups, limit value of tendon stress and many others.
