Is it possible to reinforce a foundation with a pure reinforcing bar?

Answer

Yes, it is possible.


For this, open the "1.3 Materials" dialog box. Here you can deselect the "Available Reinforcing Steel Mats" and select the reinforcing bars that should be considered for the reinforcement of the foundation.


Alternatively, it is also possible to specify an alternative reinforcement concept for the foundation plate in dialog boxes 2.4 or 2.5 after the calculation performed previously, while this concept would not take into account the mat reinforcement, for example.


After you change the reinforcement concept in dialog boxes 2.4 and 2.5, it is necessary to calculate the result again. If you switch to another dialog box after modifying the reinforcement, a message appears saying that the recalculation of results is required.
