Reinforced concrete column for arbitrary cross-section and prestressing incl.  RTbestT


  • Design of reinforced concrete according to DIN, EN according to national annexes for DE, AT, SK/CZ and UK
  • Analysis according to linear and nonlinear deformation theories, considering effective stiffnesses in the cracked state
  • Biaxial bending with normal force and shear
  • Standard cross section for rectangular, U-, H-, circular- and ring-shaped sections
  • Option fire design with consideration of thermal strains for reinforced concrete columns
  • Option for haunched, polygonal cross-sections, centric prestressing and user-defined material characteristics
  • graphical design environment for cross-section editing with DXF interface
  • Automatic generation of load combinations
  • Consideration of different erecting stages
  • Reinforcement grading, easy to create reinforcement drawing
  • Predeformation affine to the buckled shape or in a skewed shape
  • Taking creep deformations into account
  • Rigid or elastic supports
  • Simple and clear evaluation of results

Benefits of BEST EXPERT

BEST EXPERT is a powerful structural engineering application and in particular provides the following advantages:

  • clearly arranged and efficient working surface for short processing times
  • fully graphic-oriented input with optimum control of all modifications
  • fast familiarisation with an online support and manual
  • simple calculation and design of arbitrary systems with free option for storeys, supports and loads
  • high-quality calculation module for the processing of very slender, highly utilised columns
  • clear result graphics with preview and preselection
  • foundation loads can be transferred to the programme FUNDA
  • the input can alternatively be made via a dialogue

BEST EXPERT is an extraordinarily powerful structural engineering application for an economic calculation and design of arbitrary column systems. Even demanding engineering tasks within this field of application can be solved with this programme.
