6.4 Configuring the Panel

The reinforcement results can be graphically displayed as isobands or isolines. By default, a twelve-colored value spectrum between the minimum and maximum value is used. You can also adjust this value spectrum with regard to the definition of the reinforcement in order to prepare the graphical results for a reinforcement drawing, for example.

To adjust the panel, double-click one of the colors. Alternatively, you can use the button in the panel: In the subsequent Options dialog box, you can also click the button to access the dialog box for changing the ranges of colors and values.

In the Edit Isoband Value and Color Spectra dialog box, you can click the button again to open the Edit Value Spectrum with Reinforcement Definition dialog box.

Figure 6.11 Edit Isoband Value and Color Spectra and Edit Value Spectrum with Reinforcement Definition dialog boxes

This dialog box determines the reinforcement area per meter from the Diameter and the Distance of the rebars. In the Additional Rebars columns, you can assign additional rebar diameters and distances (see Figure 6.12). With them, you can set user-defined reinforcement specifications, which can be used for a reinforcement drawing.

Click [OK] to import the reinforcement areas resulting from the defined rebar diameters and distances into the Edit Isoband Value and Color Spectra dialog box.

In the panel, the diameters of the rebars with the related distances that are to be provided for the individual value ranges appear.
