5.3 Required Reinforcement by Point

Figure 5.5 Window 2.3 Required Reinforcement By Point

This results window lists the maximum reinforcement areas for all FE nodes or grid points of each surface. The columns are explained in chapter 5.1.

In addition to the longitudinal and shear reinforcements, the table displays design-relevant values of the actions and resistances. For EN 1992-1-1, these are the following:

Table 5.1 Output values in window 2.3 for EN 1992-1-1
Symbol Meaning

n1,-z (top)

Axial or membrane force for designing the reinforcement in the first reinforcement direction at the surface's top side

n2,-z (top)

Axial or membrane force for designing the reinforcement in the second reinforcement direction at the surface's top side

n1,+z(bottom)

Like n1,-z(top), but for surface bottom

n2,+z(bottom)

Like n2,-z(top), but for surface bottom

m1,-z(top)
m2,-z(top)

Only for model type 2D - XY (uZXY): moment for designing the reinforcement in the first or second reinforcement direction at the surface's top side

m1,-z(bottom)
m2,-z(bottom)

Like m1,-z(top) / m2,-z(top), but for surface bottom

VEd

Design value of applied shear force

VRd,c

Shear force resistance without shear reinforcement

VRd,max

Shear force resistance of concrete compression strut

VRd,s

Shear force resistance of shear reinforcement

Theta

Inclination angle of concrete compression strut

The search function that you can access with the button shown on the left allows you to quickly find FE nodes or grid points (see Figure 6.7).
