Why is there only displayed the total reinforcement in the Results navigator under "Required Reinforcement", and not the top and bottom reinforcement separately?


When designing one or more members with a circular cross-section, As,top and As,bottom are no longer displayed: For such cross-sections, "top" and "bottom" cannot be defined; the "circular" reinforcement is created, see Figure 01.

Figure 01 - Required Reinforcement - Circular

Solution: Create a separate design case for the circular cross-sections (select "File → New Case" in the module menu) and design the corresponding members separately. In the other design case, delete the members with circular cross-sections. After the calculation, As,top and As,bottom will be displayed in the Results navigator, see Figure 02.
