In RAM Concrete, I assigned 0.5" as clear cover in Criteria->Beam design tab. However, after the design is run, the beam design results display that the assumed clr. cover = 1.5" for both bottom and side. Can anyone please explain why my defined clr. cover is being overridden?
I appreciate your assistance! Thank You!
We don't allow the user to specify cover less than code limits. See: https://communities.bentley.com/products/ram-staad/w/structural_analysis_and_design__wiki/9430/ram-concrete-beam-faq
