Concrete Planar Elements Properties - ACI

 

By default, each concrete element is calculated using the global concrete design assumptions, in conformity with the current standard. However, the reinforced concrete assumptions can be defined locally for each element using the options available in the properties window.

 

 

Accessing the Concrete Design Properties of the selected element

To display only the concrete design properties of the selected element(s), from the Properties filter drop-down list select Reinforced Concrete Properties.
