The program has been developed for verification of reinforced concrete cross-sections of any shape under action of combinations of forces and bending moments. The analysis is performed according to EN 1992-1-1 and EN 1992-2 (Eurocode 2). This product is based on former programs Concrete 3D, Concrete 2D and Concrete Plain. The installation contains also program Section.
The program works as a standalone application or as a designing module in programs FIN 3D and FIN 2D. In this mode, the structure is created in FIN programs, that calculate deformations and internal forces. These results are transferred into the program Concrete. This program performs the verification according to the given standard. Results and updated cross-sections are transferred back into FIN programs. Such mutual communication leads to efficient optimization of structure design.
The program Concrete works separately, however the work can be simplified when using it together with the following programs for structural analysis:
These programs can be also used for design of RC structures:
