# Reinforcement arrangement

Hi

Please find the attached files. As we can see there are 28 selected columns in the column design module. After calculations, I noticed three different arrangement of reinforcement (with the same number of bars and diameter). Practically, I should look at each column design and determine the 3 different reinforcement arrangements. Then plot a plan of the columns indicating the 3 different column reinforcement arrangements. Is there a way for ARSA to do that automatically.

I'm not sure if I understand you correctly. Do you have 3 groups of columns each with one (selected) reinforcement pattern or you want to have 3 different reinforcement pattern for the same column?

3 groups of columns each with one reinforcement pattern. The pattern (number of bars & orientation of reinforcement) is determined by ARSA.

In such case select the first group and export it. Assign the reinforcement pattern to selection of this columns and calculate reinforcement for this selection with the generation of drawings. Do the same for another groups.

Hi

Iwrote in the first post:

After calculations, I noticed three different arrangement of reinforcement (with the same number of bars and diameter). Practically, I should look at each column design and determine the 3 different reinforcement arrangements. Then plot a plan of the columns indicating the 3 different column reinforcement arrangements. Is there a way for ARSA to do that automatically.

This means I should look at 28 column design drawings and find out the 3 different reinforcement arrangements. Is there a way of determining these 3 different reinforcement arrangements without looking at the 28 column design drawings?

Robot creates exact reinforcement drawing for each of the column rather than 'genaral' reinforcement pattern drawings for columns e.g. with different sizes. What you can do is to influence the way reinforcement is generated. Your options include:

- grouping columns with the same geometry so that you have the same reinforcement generated for all of them

- setting the same reinforcement pattern e.g. shape of stirrup with the diamond shape switched off and such distance between main rebars that you have e.g. 4 bars at a side

- generate typical reinforcement that is the same for number of columns and run their verification
