Design of precast RSTAB and RFEM

It is no more possible to consider construction sites without precast components made of reinforced concrete being applied in various versions due to the many advantages they provide. Precast individual foundations, columns, beams, floor slabs and so on allow rapid assembly independent of the weather conditions, thus providing for short construction periods. Moreover, the accuracy of precast components is in the range of millimeters and it requires great effort to obtain the smooth surfaces using monolithically made structural components.

RSTAB and RFEM in combination with the respective...
