Dimensioning - Concrete Cover
The "Dimensioning" frame allows for the design and verification of the reinforcement of the structure concrete cover. The upper part of the frame serves to choose whether the vertical or horizontal reinforcement and its location will be verified. The program then determines internal forces developed on the selected section.
The table in the bottom part of the frame serves to specify locations for the verification of the designed reinforcement depending on the input standard for dimensioning of reinforced concrete (the standard is specified in the "Materials and standards" tab). A cross section is loaded by the bending moment in a given point. An amount of the tensile reinforcement in the cross section is input. If the moment is negative, the designed reinforcement is placed at the structure front face and if it is negative, then at the structure back face.
Visualization of results can be adjusted in the frame "Drawing Settings".
