Minimum reinforcement according to Swedish National Annex EKS 11

Q: According to EuroCode 2, the minimum reinforcement for walls is 2 per mille, but according to EKS11 (Paragraph 9.6.2. (1) Note 1), it is sufficient to use 1 per mille. Concrete column provides minimum reinforcement according to EC2. Is there a setting that you can change in the program for this?

A: Concrete Column uses EKS11 if selected. But if the calculations are performed according to the stiffness method then 2 per mille is used according to EN 1992-1-1 (5.22). This paragraph in EN 1992-1-1 will rule over any EKS11 paragraphs. There are no settings to override this.
