The program verifies and checks iteratively prestressed beams or reinforced concrete beams, according to Eurocode 2 UNI EN 1992-1-1 : 2005 and Italian NTC2018.
Constantly updated to the newest Regulations
The verification is made in a serie of sections with constant step along the whole beam lenght + the first prestressed section + the most stressed section for bending + the last prestressed section.
The program will also verify the transitional phases: the draft, lifting, lifting / transport after a storage period
CALCULATION OF THE ELEMENTS IN VARIOUS CONFIGURATIONS (drawn close, centrals with infill elements, on the edge with infill elements)
CALCULATION OF CROSS-SECTION WITH CUTS OF WINGS HOLE AND DIFFERENT CAST IN PLACE HEIGHT (for double tees and floor beams)
Possibility to add LATERAL BOSS EXTRUDES FOR THE DIFFERENT PHASES(for double tees)
Simplified choice of the element to be calculated
Check of the load on wing (for wingspan)
Automatic calculation of the torsional component of the loads, with the possibility to edit the eccentricity (for asymmetric beams - shed)
Calculation of central beams and edge beams (with or without wind force) (for asymmetric beams - shed)
Automatic shear center (for asymmetric beams - shed)
Automatic geometrical characteristics
Asymmetrical Prestress verification with automatic calculation of torsion (for asymmetric beams - shed)
Automatic verification of support with and without the Gerber support, considering torsion too (for asymmetric beams - shed)
Calculation of the half beam (for double slope beams)
Superior peak flat (for double slope beams)
Asymmetric beams (for double slope beams)
The losses of tension are calculated in the centre of gravity of the strands contained in the lower 2/3 of the beam. The calculation at limit states is executed in an exact manner based on diagrams of breakage of the strands supplied by the manufacturer of the strands.
In each section the programs checks main traction and compression sigmas on the centre of gravity and shows the minimum distance where the stirrups should be placed. Superior and inferior reinforcement is always calculated, to absorb the tractions as requested from Regulations.
There is the possibility to calculate any section chosen from the user, with the control of main tau and sigma of traction on the whole height of the section.
Shear Verification in the not-prestressed section on support, following the method “variable strut inclination method
Display of Constraint reactions Rare and Ultimate left and right (also shown in the calculation report).

Handy starting menu
Settings of defaults data can fasten the inputs of the most used configurations of beams
For users that works for more companies, it is possible to save all the default data and the parameters depending on the Company in "Criterions", so that it is easier and fast to switch from a job to another without worring about all settings. For example., it is possible to save any number of lifting ans transportation schemas.
It is possible to switch from one section to another for the verification in a few seconds and immediately see if it is satisfied or not.
SCHEME OF THE BEAM: in every moment current section, cast in place if present, rebars, pre+post tensed strands and calculation results are displayed to always keep the situation under control.

There are pros and cons in both cases, the choice is very personal, but we recommend working on files.
If you work with file, you can save the file wherever you want, on the local PC or on the network (for example in the job order folder). When you create a new file of the project with the calculation program, you will have to manually select the text file of the section (created with the Geometries module) from the folder in which it was saved in. If you work on files it is good habit to make a backup of the project txt files in order not to lose the work you've done.
If you work with database you have all the beams (created with the Geometries program) and the projects (created with the calculation program) saved in the same file, whose management is automatic by the program and you don't have to worry about where you save it (you can see name and path of the file in the "Information" menu). The list could become very long. Anyway, you can do all the operations of saving multiple databases, using databases on the network, changing databases.
If you are working with a database you need to remember to make a backup of the mde / mdb files you used. The files must be saved in a folder on the PC where the user has all access privileges (modification and saving), we recommend C:\Users\Public\Public Documents\Eiseko Database (folder created by default with the installation of the program).
In the menu at the top right select "Data Input", "CompanyData"
Enter the desired data and press "Save".
In the menu at the top right select "Data input", "User data"
Enter the desired data and press "Save".
Yes, it is possible. It must be done BEFORE creating all the projects belonging to a specific job order.
From the main form, press “SETTINGS” and then “SET SEISMIC PARAMETERS”.
It will open then following window, in which it is possible to associate all the seismic data relating to the location of the selected job.
Each time a new project associated with the “Example” job is created, the program will automatically propose the data of the seismic parameters (they will obviously be modifiable).
NOTE: projects that already existed before these parameters are set will continue to use the previously saved data.
Nella finestra SETTAGGI della finestra iniziale si può impostare il tiro del banco trefoli.
Qua premere MODIFICA
Qua selezionare la scheda IMPOSTAZIONI TIRO
Quindi premere il pulsante arancione SETTAGGI DEFAULT
Il programma RTL dà un messaggio di errore se il tiro trefoli complessivo supera i limiti imposti in “Impostazioni Tiro”.
Se si hanno a disposizione i valori del prefabbricatore si possono impostare quelli, la quota di riferimento Q.R. è spiegata, basta premere il pulsante "Vedi immagine", in alto a destra, e si ottiene questa finestra descrittiva.
I prefabbricatori hanno il progetto delle testate di tiro dei loro banchi di casseri.
Le testate sono delle strutture vere e proprie in calcestruzzo od acciaio a cui vanno appoggiati i martinetti durante la tesatura e a cui vanno fissati i trefoli prima di effettuare il getto delle travi nei casseri. Le testate devono reggere il tiro complessivo fino all’atto del taglio o del rilascio dei trefoli.
Il progettista delle testate le ha dimensionate in funzione di un tiro massimo dei trefoli variabile in altezza riferito ad una quota che stabilisce lui, che in genere è il piede dei contrafforti.
Si riporta uno schema indicativo.
Se non si hanno i valori del prefabbricatore si possono impostare dei valori a caso sufficientemente alti, per esempio Dist. Da Q.R. = 200 cm e Tiro = 1000 ton.
Si procede con: Elimina tutto, si impostano i valori e poi si procede con Aggiungi, Elimina Riga.
Si riporta un esempio
Tutti i “dati di default”, in gruppo, possono essere memorizzati in diversi “CRITERI”: ad es, se un ingegnere lavora per più ditte, può memorizzare i dati di default validi per le diverse ditte in più criteri ciascuno con il nome della ditta. Prima di creare il nuovo progetto scegliere il Criterio della ditta per cui si realizza il progetto di calcolo. L’uso dei “Criteri” si dimostra particolarmente utile per gli schemi di sollevamento e trasporto che possono variare da una ditta all’altra.
Yes, it is possible from version 21.00.00. If you have a previous version just update the program from this site and then you will be able to select "Verify Existing" in the materials window.
