direction. An arrowhead symbolclose to the midpoint of each splitter indicates the direction and the left and right sides of the splitter. The arrow points from the start towards the end of the splitter.
Select how many bars can be modified in the same location:
|First affected bar||
Define which is the first bar to be modified, starting from the first end of the modifier.
Enter a positive number, or use the arrow buttons to change the number.
|Split type||Select Lapping or Cranking.|
Defines how far from the splitter the split is created.
Positive values move the split to the right side and negative values to the left side of the splitter.
These properties are available when Split type is Lapping.
|Lapping type||Select Standard lapping or Custom lapping.|
|Lap length||With custom lapping, enter the length of the lap splice.
With standard lapping, the lap length is read from the rebar_database.inp file.
Select the side of the lap splice from the splitter:
|Lap placement||Select whether the lapping bars are parallel to each other, or on top of each other.|
