Check of existing concrete structure

Is there a way to check an existing concrete structure to see if the reinforcement in it is sufficient? If so how do I do it? I have been trying to get the "Provided reinforcement" module to work, but I am not able to make much sense of it.

To do so you first need to generate existing reinforcement. You can define loads and then design a beam / column to have reinforcement distribution. Then you can edit it and run verification. You can also try to use the typical reinforcement option for generation of reinforcement instead.

How do I generate existing reinforcement for slabs? And I am currently on 2013 version of Robot (if there are differences in the procedure).

This is currently not possible however you may consider another approach. If you run calculations of reinforcement you can compare obtained values of required area of reinforcement with the existing reinforcement in given locations of the slab. This should give you the estimation of the situation.
