2.4.5 Reinforcement Rules
For plates, the reinforcement rules presented in chapter 2.3.7 apply.
In RF-CONCRETE Surfaces, user-defined specifications can be set in window 1.4 Reinforcement. The following tabs are relevant:
If there are different specifications for the minimum shear reinforcement in the two tabs, the more unfavorable specification applies.
The user-defined reinforcement specifications can be found in the design details.
The reinforcement to be used is shown for the Bottom surface (+z) and the Top surface (-z) in separate entries. The individual reinforcements in each direction indicate whether the reinforcement to be used is the statically required reinforcement or the minimum longitudinal reinforcement.
