BETONexpress - Frequently Asked Questions

 

Why, in retaining wall calculation (cantilever wall type B - B2) program neglects angle of shearing resistance between ground-wall (angle delta) which is set by user and calculates with 0 (no vertical component of soil pressure).
All the walls type B (large wall hill) are calculated with Rankins theory. Earth pressure on a vertical line at the end of the wall hill. In this case the friction on the wall face and wall slope are neglected. There is no vertical component of earth pressure on this line.
It is explained with drawing on section 15.1 of the program book.


How can I change the size of the text in the graphs ?
From the [Report Setup/Fonts,Paragraphs..] at the bottom you set the size of the text in the graphs.


The Printer Setup dialog does not show up
This is because the default printer of Windows, does not exist. Usually this happens in Windows XP and 2000 when the default printer is a Netware printer and you are not connected to the Netware or the printer is not ON. To solve the problem connect the printer or change the default Windows printer.


When I try to preview it shows a message ‘Printer error …’.
In order to preview the report there must be a valid printer in the system. Usually this happens in Windows XP and 2000 when the default printer is a Netware printer and you are not connected to the Netware or the printer is not ON. To solve the problem connect the printer or change the default Windows printer.


I cannot see right the mathematical symbols and other Greek characters in the report.
This is because your  Windows does not have the Greek character support installed. Depending on the Window installation the Greek mathematical symbols may or may not appear right. If you have Windows XP or 2000 you may add Greek language support in your Windows.  Go to [Settings/Control Panel/Regional and Language Options/Advanced].   Otherwise go to the menu Files/Greek character support and choose your language without support for mathematical symbols. Then the mathematical symbols will appear explicitly, as phi, alpha, beta etc.


How do I change the paragraphing in the report ?
From Report Setup/Various set the various indentations.


How can I manipulate the pagination in the report
From Report Setup/Various you can check to have a new page after the printing of a design object.


How can I change something in the report ?
Export the report to a rtf document. Enter the document with any word processor and do the wished changes.


I select a rebar diameter 12 mm but the program uses another
In order for the program to use the specified rebar diameter you have to check the box next to the specified diameter. Otherwise  the program selects a diameter, around the specified diameter, optimising the reinforcement.



In plates I select a reinforcing bar diameter 6 mm, but the program uses 8 mm
This is because the minimum reinforcement for slabs is set to 8 mm in the parameters for reinforcing concrete.  Click at Parameters/Reinforced Concrete and change the lower reinforcing bar limit.



In beams I select a reinforcing bar diameter 10 mm, but the program uses 12 mm
This is because the minimum reinforcement for beams is set to 12 mm in the parameters for reinforcing concrete.  Click at Parameters/Reinforced Concrete and change the lower reinforcing bar limit.


 In columns I select a reinforcing bar diameter 14 mm, but the program uses 16 mm
This is because the minimum reinforcement for columns is set to 16 mm in the parameters for reinforcing concrete.  Click at Parameters/Reinforced Concrete and change the lower reinforcing bar limit.


In footings I select a reinforcing bar diameter 10 mm, but the program uses 12 mm
This is because the minimum reinforcement for footings is set to 16 mm in the parameters for reinforcing concrete.  Click at Parameters/Reinforced Concrete and change the lower reinforcing bar limit.

 


In continuous slabs and beams I change the length Lo but the length of the spans does not change.
 You have to click at the button L= to reset the length in all the spans of the continuous slab or beam.
