[NODE/ELEMENT]     Will the program automatically take into account the oblique slabs’ principal axis while giving the reinforcement?

A: Will the program automatically take into account the oblique slabs’ principal axis while giving the reinforcement?

From the main menu select Node/Element > Mesh >Define Sub-Domain.
When generating a mesh, the entire mesh area is the Domain and the mesh elements that partition the mesh are the Sub-Domains. A Sub-Domain can be defined automatically when a mesh is generated or can be defined directly from the Define Sub-Domain dialog box. Sub-Domains are automatically assigned numerical names when created (1, 2, 3).

The direction of reinforcement for an oblique slab could as well be defined using this meshed slab feature. These created sub-domains, have an option to enter the angle of the major axis rebar and the minor axis rebar.


Added options to give the basic rebar size and spacing is available as well, which is later considered for design
