RC Design - Provided reinforcement - RC element update support problem

Hi all,

 

I am experiencing a problem with RC element update in mentioned module. When I transfer sections from a structure, I assign supporting elements. After modification of the structure model i needed to update RC beams. I did this by right clicking on the beam and pressing "RC element update". After doing that all of the supports have changed to default. ARSA considers all joined elements as supports. Is there a way to avoid this?

 

Thanks in advance.

Show us the look of this beam on model or send us the file.

Sorry, my answer was too short.

"Need to be corrected" - I meant corrected in software.

For now you have to reimport such beam and redesign it in such case (with connected bars which should not be considered as supports for design elelment)
