How is reinforcement calculated for slabs?

Reinforcement design in the Concrete menu is done using forces calculated with Baumann transformation method

Detailed information and theoretical background related to this method can be found in "2D Concrete design-EC2" (see Help menu in Scia Engineer > Contents > Concrete Design > Concrete slabs - EN) 

Design of reinfrocement in the Concrete menu can be different from the result calculated using the Design forces (mxD+, myD+, mxD-, myD-...) given in the Result menu of SCIA Engineer.

Design forces calculated in the Result menu are computed according to ENV.
