How can I design a reinforced concrete cross-section in SHAPE?


The reinforced concrete design in SHAPE-THIN has to be activated in the general data. As soon as the design is active, it is possible to set the design accordingly in a separate tab (Figure 01).

There are three types for the design:

Strain-Stress Diagram (Example 01):
An available design ratio is determined by specifying the internal forces

Existing Safety (Example 02):
The state of fracture (ratio = 100%) and; in relation to it; determines a certainty.

Design (Example 03):
By specifying a maximum and minimum diameter or a minimum and a maximum reinforcement, it is possible to increase the reinforcement within the design.

Irrespective of which of the three methods is used, you have to specify the position of the reinforcement and an acting internal force (Figure 02).
