I would like to report a situation: I have a model calculation in the beam (beam element) which rests on walls (plate element). In view of the results, everything is correct, as in the image below.

When calculating the reinforcement of the beam, the model does not include the actual supports.

The calculation of the reinforcement is correct? As you can see the actual constraints?
thanks

1. Generate meshes on the walls

2. Freeze them

3. Define auxiliary columns in such a way that their bottom nodes do not 'meet' with nodes of the meshes

4. Calculate model and export the beam to the RC Design module

5. Mark columns as supports
