Factorize / Optimize Provided Reinforcement

Helpful Questions & Answers

  • Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What is the meaning of the two terms "Factorize provided reinforcement" and "Optimize provided reinforcement" in the concrete design?

Answer

These are two different methods for calculating the required longitudinal reinforcement.


  • Factorize Provided Reinforcement

    The entire provided longitudinal reinforcement (compression and tension reinforcement) is equally scaled with a factor. This means that the reinforcement in the compression and tension zone has the same factor.

  • Optimize Provided Reinforcement

    The provided longitudinal reinforcement is divided into the upper and lower reinforcement (compression and tension reinforcement) and is scaled with different factors. This option allows you to only scale the required tension reinforcement accordingly, while any non-required reinforcement in the compression zone is set to zero.
