Is there a setting option to only use reinforcing mats and no rebars for the design of foundation plates?

Answer

In Window 1.3 Materials, it is not possible to deactivate all reinforcing bars. At least one diameter must be selected here. However, you can determine the bending reinforcement required for the foundation plate with this specification in one of the first calculation steps. In the result window 2.3 Required Reinforcement, you can then see which bending reinforcement is to be provided for the foundation plate. Afterwards, you can specify a user-defined reinforcement in Window 2.4 Plate Reinforcement - Bottom. For this, click the Different Reinforcement Proposal... button. A new dialog box appears where you can specify that only mat reinforcement should be applied (no rebars). Click [OK] to confirm the change in this dialog box. If you click in the module navigator after this change, you receive a message indicating that the calculation must be performed again due to the change in the reinforcement. Confirm this by clicking [Yes]. Thus, the calculation will be performed again. After the recalculation, you can open Window 2.7 Steel Schedule. Here you can see that only reinforcing mats have been used.
