Realistic reinforcement layouts in Detail

This article is also available in:
Do you want to have nicer images of stirrups reinforcement in your report? You can have them now because we improved the 3D realistic layout. Hence, it is not just about images. The option of considering the stirrups' diameter in cover calculation has also been added.

Concrete cover improvement (for ACI and EN) – when the beam element is modelled, the concrete cover for longitudinal reinforcement can be calculated considering the biggest stirrups' diameter. The reinforcement layout is also closer to reality, and longitudinal rebars do not collide with stirrups.

This option can be turned ON or OFF in Settings.
