Reinforcement calculation plate Eurocode
The reinforcement calculation method of plates within XFEM4U is based on the 3-layer model.
The plate is divided into 3 layers based on nxx,nyy,nxy,mxx,myy,mxy,vx and vy. The top and bottom layer are used for the bending moment forces and the middle layer for normal forces.
See the output example below for all the details of the calculation.
