Stirrups used for torsion or integrity reinforcement can be made up of two pieces of reinforcement. This option can be choosen by users.
To anchore shear and torsional reinforcement properly, it is automatically done a hook or bend at the end of the reinforcement.
Stirrups are anchored ends get through with 135- degree standard hooks around a longitudinal bar automatically.
