Stress in reinforcement

Is there a way to find out the stress in reinforcement?


i.e. I've calculated theoretical and actual provided reinforcement for a reinforced concrete slab and need to check the bar diameter and spacing for crack control requirements (as a hand calculation).


The maximum crack width that I require is 0.2mm and as part of Eurocode checks for liquid retaining structures I need σ.s (the maximum stress in steel just before crack occurs)... is this something that can be found in the robot model?

Please use plain text.
