The frame "Stage settings" allows to input settings valid for a given construction stage.
The frame allows to introduce bounds on the tensile and gradient damage. These values allow to verify the building damage in the frame "Damages". The program offers a default pre-setting (default setting for masonry buildings) and a user-defined setting - here, it is possible to define arbitrary criteria recommended by standards or gained from practical experience for arbitrary types of buildings.
The boundary values must be defined either in a descending or ascending order, respectively. Should you need to define fewer regions than specified in the program, it is possible to characterize certain boundaries by the same value.
