General Settings









Safety factor x is a factor added to the design anchorage length.










Mandrel diameter for bent bars



- From library: select this option to use a diameter from the library. The mandrel diameter for each diameter will be the value defined for Bent-up Bending Diameter in the Reinforcement Diameters dialog


- From the list: enables the List of available diameters field where you can customize this list by introducing a certain diameter value in [mm] separated by a space.


- Calculated: selecting this option the drop-down list below will be grayed out.
