Is there a setting option with which I can only use mesh reinforcement and no reinforcing bars when dimensioning base plates?

Answer

In the mask 1.3 Materials it is not possible to deactivate all rebars. At least one diameter must be selected here. However, in a first calculation run you can first of all determine the bending reinforcement required for the foundation plate with this specification. From the result mask 2.3 Required reinforcement , you can then find out which bending reinforcement is to be provided for the foundation slab. Afterwards, you can specify a custom reinforcement in the screen 2.4 Lower Plate Reinforcement. To do this, click on the button Other Reinforcement Suggestion ... This will open a new dialog in which you can specify that only mesh reinforcement should be used (no bars). Confirm the change in this dialog with [OK]. If you make a 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 with [Yes]. This will perform the calculation again. After the recalculation, you can switch to the screen 2.7 Steel list . Here you will see that only reinforcement mats have been used.
