Additional starter bars according to minimum reinforcement percentage: if selected, the minimum reinforcement area recommended in EN-1992-1-1 will be used to generate the column starter bars.

Additional starter bars according to imposed required area: if selected, the option Imposed reinforcement area becomes active.

Additional starter bars according to imposed diameters: if selected, the options Main starter bars diameter and Secondary starter bars diameter become active.

Imposed reinforcement area: defines the theoretical reinforcement area of the starter bars; the value is limited to 150 cm2.
