Dynamic reinforcement solutions for columns can be applied to rectangular sections. The Column 1 stirrup-symmetric solution is used for the reinforcement of columns with no variation of diameter. In the properties window 2 elements are available: rectangular frames and vertical bars.
First, define the rectangular frame properties (steel grade, diameter, concrete cover, distribution spacing on the two areas, etc.), and then the vertical bar properties (steel grade, diameter - for this solution the diameter is the same for all vertical bars, concrete covers on bar extremities, hooks on edges, hook lengths, and also bar distribution on sides).
Launch the "Apply solution" command on the Advance Reinforcement Solutions toolbar.
In the dynamic reinforcement window, 6 types of reinforcing methods are available.
2. The parameters for Rectangular bar (A) and Straight bar (B) are defined.
3. After defining the parameters, a reinforcement drawing is created by selecting the command from the Advance Reinforcement toolbar.
To modify the parameters:
