Longitudinal Reinforcement

 

The Longitudinal Reinforcement item opens a dialog box that provides information about the longitudinal reinforcement bar's general parameters such as:

 

- spacing

- anchorage length amplification

- hook angle and lengths

- mandrel diameters for bent bars.

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.
