Hi all

We are using Sofistik Reinforcement Detailing 2019 and recently we found a frustrating issue:
When we make stirrups and hook-bars with hooks and use Method A for calculating the length, the Sofistik_Bar_Length parameter is not calculated correctly.

In the example below we have square stirrup with A=330mm, B=330mm and Hooks approx=125mm. The bar length should be around 1570mm, but Sofistik_bar_legnth is calculated as 1810mm. Obviously it doubles the hooks.

It is the same with the hook bars as shown in the attachments.

The length is calculated by Sofistik correctly when using Method B, but the contractors we work with are used to lengths based on outside dimensions. This issue leads to wrong Bar Bending Schedules and quantities which is unacceptable.

Any help with the above issue will be appreciated and thanks in advance.

Any updates on the issue above?

We found out that Sofistik doubles the hooks length for each shape code, not only for stirrups.
I.e. for all bars that have hooks attached, the Sofistik_Bar_Length parameter is wrong if Method A is used.
