Do you have trouble with fulfilling stress limitation in quasi-permanent combination while designing your beam in IDEA StatiCa Beam? Use implemented calculation of non-linear creep and you will not have to worry about the check any more.

Nonlinear creep calculation is turned on by ticking the "Calculation of non-linear creep" checkbox in Settings of Construction stages menu.

How to turn on the calculation of non-linear creep

The checks when non-linear creep is considered does not require the limit of 45 % of characteristic compressive strength (fck) for quasi-permanent combination and allow us to make an economic design. See EN 1992-1-1 art. 7.2 (3).

The nonlinear creep is calculated according to the EN 1992-1-1 art. 3.1.4 (4).
