Reinforcement Pattern Type

The following three pattern types are available:

  • Radial
  • Rectangle
  • Custom

Radial Pattern

In the radial pattern, the bars are arranged in a circular pattern based on the following input parameters:

  • Number of Bars
  • Angle from X Axis - this is the angle of the first bar on the right side of the section. You'll notice as you increase the number of bars that the position of the right-most bar does not change.
  • Cover Depth or Distance From Center
    • Cover Depth - distance from the outside edge of the section
    • Distance from Center - distance from the center of the section

Note: It is up to the user to confirm that the cover requirements of their particular code are satisfied. RSPile does not check this.

Rectangular Pattern

In the rectangular pattern, the bars are arranged based on the following input parameters:

  • Peripheral bars - check the box to only include bars in the periphery (outside edge) of the pattern
  • Number of Bars in X
  • Number of Bars in Y
  • Min Cover Depth

If you have a reinforcement pattern that has specific depth and length within the pile, this is specified in the Edit Pile Type dialog.
