6.4 Configuring the Panel

The reinforcement results can be shown graphically as isobands or isolines. Twelve color zones are set by default for the value spectrum, covering a range between minimum and maximum value. You can adjust the value spectrum regarding also the definition of the reinforcement in order to prepare, for example, the graphical results for a reinforcement drawing.

To adjust the panel, double click one of the colors. You can also use the button in the panel: The Options dialog box opens, where you can click the button to access another dialog box for changing the ranges of colors and values.

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

Figure 6.11 Dialog boxes Edit Isoband Value and Color Scales and Edit Value Spectrum with Reinforcement Definition

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 further rebar diameters and distances (see Figure 6.12 ). Thus, you can set user-defined value spectra for the reinforcement, which can be used for a reinforcement drawing.

Figure 6.12 Dialog box Edit Value Spectrum with Reinforcement Definition with rebar diameters and distances

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

In the panel, you see the diameters of the rebars with the according distances that are to be provided for the individual value ranges.
