My model includes several columns with different cross-sections. How can I assign the reinforcement of the column with the maximum loading to the columns with the same cross-section?

Answer

In principle, RF‑/CONCRETE Columns designs the statically required reinforcement for a buckling analysis and generates a reinforcement proposal on this basis.

As an alternative to this procedure, it is also possible to specify a certain minimum reinforcement ratio before starting the calculation. You can enter this data iin Window "1.4 Reinforcement" in the tab for the selected National Annex of EN 1992‑1‑1 (for example, DIN EN 1992‑1‑1).

A new reinforcement concept is defined on the basis of the entries specified here and used to perform the designs.
