Concrete Column Design Module


Concrete Column Design Module

SuperCONCRETE-RCOL is a plug in design module for the design of reinforced concrete columns to BS8110. The structure is modelled using SuperSTRESS, once analysed you can seamlessly enter SuperCONCRETE-RCOL to carry out the column design.

Concrete Column Design Module

Standard design data can be applied to groups of columns and modified as per the requirements of your design. After designing you can view all selected bar layout and critical ones are highlighted. All of these options are laid out in the familiar SuperSUITE environment.

SuperCONCRETE RCOL forms part of the SuperCONCRETE package, which enables you to design columns, BEAMS and BASES with maximum efficiency.

During the design all relevant BS8110 Clauses are automatically checked. The detailed reporting facilities are fully cross-referenced with design clause references and there is an extensive choice of tabular and graphical output of results, with precise positions of maximum values identified.

After the design the SCX add on tool can be used to output your design directly to SuperCAD with all the column outlines and bars detailed.
