Hello Friends,I have to model RC Beam having Corrosion using ANSYS APDL for which I have to use Solid 65,Link 180 and Combin 39 elements

In case of COMBIN 39 element i have to define Load Slip Curve at bond interface between steel and concrete. For which the Force-Slip equation is given below,in this equation ‘l’ denotes the distance between adjacent COMBIN 39 elements..What does DISTANCE BETWEEN ADJACENT COMBIN 39 element actually mean,is it the distance between adjacent Re bars or anything else? Please help me with this
