Modifying Provided Longitudinal Reinforcement

Helpful Questions & Answers

  • Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

How can I retrospectively reduce the determined provided longitudinal reinforcement in RF‑CONCRETE Columns?


The design of a column with RF‑CONCRETE Columns determines a provided reinforcement, among other things. This is displayed in Table 4.1 and illustrated in the graphics below and in the table on the right.

You can use the "Edit Reinforcement" button to change the reinforcement, if necessary. Click the button to open the "Edit Longitudinal Reinforcement" dialog box (see the image). It includes the table for the "Position of Reinforcement Bars." Here you can delete rows by selecting the row that contains the member to be removed and then clicking the button below.

If "Uniformly surrounding" is set for the reinforcement distribution, the longitudinal reinforcement can be increased or decreased by selecting the number of members in four steps.

Then, it is necessary to recalculate the design for the modified reinforcement arrangement in order to update the design ratio.

The described procedure is shown in the explanatory video.
