The "Material"allows for the selection of material parameters for concrete and longitudinal steel reinforcements.
Two options are available when selecting the material type:
- The "Catalog" button opens the "Material catalog" dialog window (for concrete or steel reinforcements), the list of materials then serves to select the desired material.
- The "Own" button opens the "Concrete" dialog window (for concrete) or the "Reinforcing steel bars" dialog window (for longitudinal steel reinforcements), which allows for manual specification of material parameters.
The catalogs content depends on the selection of standard for the design of concrete structures set in the "" tab. The input field in the upper part of the frame serves to specify the abutment unit weight.
