Concrete plate design results

RC shell design

You have defined the design parameters for the reinforced concrete section of a plate? In accordance with the standard you have chosen when entering the design parameters in DESIGN, in the results you will find:

  • Min. reinforcement top: This is the minimum reinforcement area to be positioned at the top (in accordance with the Z axis) along the indicated direction, with reference to the local reference system;
  • Min. reinforcement bottom: is the minimum reinforcement area to be positioned below (in accordance with the Z axis) in the indicated direction, with reference to the local reference system;
  • ULS reinforcement top: is the reinforcement area calculated for the ultimate limit state to be positioned at the top (in accordance with the Z axis) in the specified direction with reference to the local reference system;
  • ULS reinforcement bottom: This is the reinforcement area calculated for the ultimate limit state to be positioned below (in accordance with the Z axis) in the specified direction with reference to the local reference system;
  • Required reinforcement top: is the reinforcement area that must necessarily be positioned at the top of the section, along the chosen direction and with reference to the element’s local reference system. Enclose the minimum area and the area for the ultimate limit state in the same section.
  • Required reinforcement bottom: This is the reinforcement area that must necessarily be positioned at the bottom of the plate, along the direction indicated and with reference to the local system of the element. Enclose the minimum area and the area for the ultimate limit state in the same section.
  • Bending design error: Indicates an error in the reinforcement calculation in the indicated element.

Please note that the calculation algorithm used in WeStatiX optimizes the reinforcement taking into account the drill moments!
