Edit Type of Reinforcement

The "Edit type of reinforcement" dialog window contains following items:

Short-term characteristic strength

  • the value cannot be adjusted (given by the manufacturer)

Reduction factors

  • the values of factors reducing a short-term tensile strength

Long-term design strength

Coefficient for slip resistance

  • coefficient of direct slip along reinforcement

Coefficients for pull out resistance

  • coefficient of interaction of soil and geo-reinforcement, and scale correction factor

Long-term strength reduction factor

  • the value of factor reducing the connection strength

Connection strength

  • connection strength is calculated according to: Rcon = Tult . CRcr / RFd

The "Default values" button at the bottom of the dialog window sets all coefficients to their original values.
