Introduce the required values and the calculation is automatic. The torsion resistance of your section and the required reinforcement are calculated.
Torsion resistance verification
Explanation

Torsion is defined as the application of a twisting moment on the longitudinal axis of a prismatic piece. The following image shows the application of the strut and tie method to the torsion. This model will give us an idea of ​​the efforts/forces that appear in the concrete and what type of reinforcement will be needed.

Torsional moment (kN.m):
Normal force(kN)
(Compression +):
Fill in only for the calculation of the compression strut resistance and for the calculation of the shear-torsion interaction
Vertical shear force (Following h)(kN): Fill in only for the interaction Torsion-Shear
Longitudinal reinforcement (Only for the concrete shear resistance - Interaction torsion shear
Lower reinforcement (A1) (mm^2): Fill in only to calculate the interaction with the shear force, to calculae the concrete shear resistance
Capacity of the concrete struts calculation factors and the additional longitudinal required reinforcement
Cracked concrete reduction factor (V1) (The EC-2 recommended value is automatically proposed): State of stress in the compression chord coefficient (α cw) (EC-2 calculated coefficient, it is conservative to consider it equal to 1):
