I have activated the minimum longitudinal reinforcement in RF-CONCRETE Members. Is this displayed in the graphical display of the required reinforcement at the top or bottom?

Answer

If the calculation of the longitudinal reinforcement according to the standard is activated, the required reinforcement content is taken into account when displaying the required reinforcement.


See the following graphic with the distribution of the required reinforcement without the minimum longitudinal reinforcement according to the standard:


And in comparison, the distribution of As,erf,-z(top) with the minimum longitudinal reinforcement according to the standard:


In the result window '2.4 Required Reinforcement by x-Location', you can see which reinforcement is required at each x-location of the designed member. If the minimum longitudinal reinforcement according to the standard becomes relevant, this is indicated by the message No. 26) or 27). 



At locations where the minimum longitudinal reinforcement is not critical, only the statically required longitudinal reinforcement is displayed. Messages No. 26) and 27) are missing in this case.
