CSI SAFE FINITE ELEMENT DESIGN INTERPRETATION

CSI SAFE FINITE ELEMENT DESIGN INTERPRETATION

(OP)
Hello Guys,

I'm finding it difficult interpreting the rebar intensity contour plots (direction 1 and 2) generated by CSI SAFE after finite element design of a slab. I'm getting intensities as high as 3500 mm2 per m at column joints. How does one provide reinforcement for a slab using the contour plots. I've attached some screenshots of the model for viewing(can provide more if needed). I designed the structure to BS8110. Any materials (PDFs, Videos, Links, Examples...) to help me understand the concept especially how to provide reinforcements from the contour plots would be greatly appreciated. I've already tried adding strips but the details generated for the slabs in the radial part of the structure is not concise. My plan is to get the reinforcement from the Finite Element Design and detail the slab with Tekla Structures because of the ease of modelling reinforcements in virtually any angle.

Thanks for your anticipated responses.
