Square section

 

For a Square section column, you can define the Rebar Cage from the Reinforcement dialog box, which has two main tabs:

 

 

1. Longitudinal Reinforcement:

 

 

 

 

Main Longitudinal Reinforcement for square section column

Secondary Longitudinal Reinforcement for square section column

Reinforcement – Main and Secondary Bars

 

Info Tooltip: Displays the number and diameter of the bars, as well as the reinforcement percentage coverage over the theoretical reinforcement.

Available configurations

 

Available configurations

 

 

- Steel binders: this configuration allows the intermediary reinforcement bars to be bound with either pins or stirrups.

- Multiple links: this configuration allows the use of multiple links and links, only 1 multiple links can be used in 1 direction.

 

Note: if the configuration is done using only pins and stirrups, it will be changed to Steel binders.

Distribution definition list

 

Distribution definition list

 

 

 

 

- Quantity: the distribution is based on quantity

- Quantity and length: the distribution is based on quantity and length

- Spacing: the distribution is based on spacing

- Spacing and length: the distribution is based on spacing and length

 

 

Note: when selecting a distribution type the user can change an available parameter and the module will compensate based on the changes.

Distribution list

 

Distribution list

 

 

 

 

 

- Custom: allow the user to manually define the transversal reinforcement package.

- 3 zones distribution: distributes the transversal reinforcement in 3 packages with a focus on the top and bottom zones.

- 2 zones distribution (to top): distributes the transversal reinforcement in 2 packages with a focus on the top zone.

- 2 zones distribution (to bottom): distributes the transversal reinforcement in 2 packages with a focus on the bottom zone.

- Uniform distribution: distributes the transversal reinforcement in 1 package evenly spacing.

 

 

 

 

Exceeding length list

 

Exceeding length list

 

 

- Both offsets: this will affect the distribution spacing of transversal reinforcement for both top and bottom zones.

- Bottom offset: this will affect the distribution spacing of transversal reinforcement for the bottom zone.

- Top offset: this will affect the distribution spacing of transversal reinforcement for the top zone.
