Transverse Reinforcement in Column

How can I model diamond transverse reinforcement (as in the link) in SeismoStruct ?

Dear Subedi Naresh,

If you assign 3 stirrup legs along your section's height and width, the section will have the same confinement factor with the requested section. In the case you want to execute shear capacity checks, then you may calculate the tranverse reinforcement area per direction for the requested section(for the diamond transverse reinforcement you should calculate its projection to the direction under consideration) and assign the equivalent one by modifying the stirrups' bar size and spacing.
