There is a slab model attached in zip-file.
I am wondering why the minimun reinforcement is 457mm2/mm where slab thickness is 220mm. Is there an error in the model or do I interpret the reinforcement results wrongly?It is important to have correct results for the required reinforcement beacause deflection has to be adjusted (in the attached model there is the basic case: reinforcement adjust only for cracking).
And an other question: Is it somehow possible to add reinforcement material A700HW in the reinforcement bar database? At the moment there is only A500HW in the database SFS-EN 1992-1-1.

Apparently the use of the provisions of the point 188.8.131.52 (3) of EC which limits bar spacing to 250 mm. As you decided on 12 mm bars it is 4*fi12 / m

This can be done by editing the selected reinforcement bar database as shown on the attached picture.
