Rebar lengths

I'm sharing this interesting technical support issue with our EdiLus users

QUESTION
I can't understand how to determine the total length of the reinforcement bars as shown in the attached image (img1.jpg). How do I proceed?

ANSWER
The length of the rebar as shown in the attached image (img2.jpg) is determined with the following individual lengths:
L1 = 230cm
L2 = 23cm
L3 = 31cm
________
Ltot = 284cm


L1: is the rebar length to the center of the column
L2: half the column width minus the reinforcement cover (25-2)
L3: rebar shaping equal to the column height minus the reinforcement cover multiplied by the squaring percentage (as configured in the beams reinforcement toolbox img3.jpg) 67%(50-2-2)
