Hi

 

Please find the attached file. How can I change reinforcement ratio? I receiver an error message in column design module indicating that reinforcement is less than 1%.

Please use plain text.

You can e.g. try to set smaller spacing among reinforcement bars.

Hi Artur

 

Why the reinforcement ratio is in a dialogue box in the case we can't modify it (put another value)? instead the programmer can put a reinforcement ratio implicitly in a setting. The same thing with reinforcement weight (kg/m3)

I think you confuse the optimization with restrictions imposed on reinforcement distribution. that prevents generation of larger amount of reinforcement.

You missed the file. For the reinforcement pattern there situation I described is valid for both beams and columns.
