The following toolbars are used when creating a dynamic reinforcement solution:

Reinforcement solutions apply only to the structural elements for which they are defined. Therefore, before creating a reinforcement solution, you should consider what type of elements you need to include.

Example: How to create a dynamic reinforcement solution for a column

• Select the desired column and use the "Define solution" command on the Advance Reinforcement Solutions toolbar.
• In the "Creation of a reinforcement drawing" window, select 4 views > Dynamic reinforcement: left, front, top, isometric view.
• Follow all the reinforcement drawing creation steps by clicking the Next button. At the end, Advance Concrete will display a range of views containing the reinforcement bar sketch points (definition points).

• The sketch points are automatically created according to the selected element geometry. These points are used as definition points for the reinforcement bars.
• It is possible to add more definition points if necessary, according to the required type of the reinforcement bars. To create additional points, use the Advance Sketch Designer toolbar.
• Start reinforcing the element using the Advance Reinforcement toolbar. The reinforcement bars are created through the sketch points.

• Create the rectangular bar in the top view by 2 diagonal points, for example E and A.

• Define a linear distribution on the column height by 2 points (G and H).

• Define the vertical bars by the G - H and A - B points.

• Create a linear distribution in the "Left elevation" view, defining each distribution through the E and G points.

• The solution is created and must be saved. Use the "Save solution" command on the Advance Reinforcement Solutions toolbar:
• After launching the command, a window containing a 3D view of the reinforcement solution is displayed.
• Click Next to go to the next window, which shows the structural elements included in the solution (in this case, the column).
• Go to the next window, where you can add the reinforcement solution parameters representing the reinforcement bar properties: diameter, steel grade, hooks, length and angle of the hook, cover, distribution type with numbers of bars, and distance between the bars.
• Click Next. The following window provides information about the available post processing actions.
• Choose finish and save the solution.
• The reinforcement solutions are saved as files in:

• To apply the saved solution: select a column and use the "Apply solution" command on the Advance Reinforcement Solutions toolbar:
• Select the previously saved solution in the displayed window:
• Click Next to access the window containing the reinforcement bar properties, which can be modified.
• Click Finish to apply the solution.
• To view the column reinforcement, create a reinforcement drawing:
