Hello,

I have a suggestion, the option of modelling a different number of longitudinal steel bars in the columns. Some buildings have columns with different number of bars in the joint columns-beams and it would be easy to have the capacity of model it in the the building modeller of seismostruct.

Dear psi_14,

In the current version, you may use the "Different Integration Sections" option available in the Element Classes, or you may subdivide the element to assign the sections with the proper reinforcement.
