How can I define a fixed stirrup spacing of 6 in and 12 in in CONCRETE?


You can find this setting in the "Ties and Stirrups" tab of Window 1.6 (see Figure 01): under the Defined stirrup spacing option, you can define user-defined distances, for example 6 in and 12 in. Proceed as follows:

  1. Click the [Defined Stirrup Spacing] button (see Figure 02).

  2. Click the [New] button in the "Defined Stirrup Spacing" dialog box.

  3. Enter the desired distance in the "New List of Allowable Stirrup Distances" dialog box (0.50 and 1.00 in the example). Then, assign a description to the list, for example 'Only 6 and 12 in' (see Figure 03).

  4. After clicking OK, your list of stirrup spacings is available for the design (see Figure 04).

For the design of stirrup reinforcement, CONCRETE only uses the allowable distances.
