Program Corbel

The software "Corbel" verifies directly supported (corbels on columns) and indirectly supported (corbels on beams) corbels according to EN 1992-1-1.

User interface

The user interface consists of a main menu with toolbars in the upper part of the window, tree menu on the left and input/display part on the right side of the window. The main menu contains all tools and functions, which can be used during the work. The tree menu is used for the administration of individual project tasks as well as for switching between parts of an input. The work with the tree menu is described in the chapter "Tree menu". The tree menu can be alternated by the part "Data" of the main menu. Tools for documents printing are organized in the window "Print and export document", which can be opened using the printing icon in the toolbar "Files" or using the appropriate link in the part "File" of the main menu.

Two types of particular tasks ("Corbels") can be verified in the software:

Directly supported corbel

  • The detail where the load is directly transferred into the structure. Typical example is the corbel placed on the column. The detail is analysed as CCC joint.

Indirectly supported corbel

  • The detail that is hanging on the structure. Typical example is the corbel placed on the beam. The detail is analysed as CCT joint. The tensile stress in the joint is transferred by stirrups in beam.

These tasks can be added with the help of the button "Add" in the heading of the tree menu.

Main screen

Basic screen of the software contains general data of the project (identification details, design standard).

Frame "General project data" shows data, that can be input in the window "General project data". The window can be opened by using the button "Edit". The entered data can be used in heading and footing of documents.

The design standard including national annex can be changed in the part "Standard". These settings are placed in the window "Standard selection", that can be launched by the button "Edit".

Part "Calculation options" contains settings that may influence the analysis:

Maximal resistance limited according to formula 6.2.3(6.9) of standard

  • The possibility to limit the design value of the compressive resistance due to crushing of the compression struts

The program appearance may be changed in the window "Global settings" that is available in the part "Options" of the main menu.
