Reinforcement mesh array in area (89)

Reinforcement mesh array in area (89)

Creates reinforcement meshes for an entire concrete part, or for a defined polygonal area.

Parts created

Reinforcement meshes.

Use for

Situation

Description

Array of overlapping rectangular meshes.

Array of meshes in a polygonal area that you define. Meshes clipped to fit the defined area.

Before you start

  • Create the concrete part.

  • Set the work planeplane that the user has chosen in a model and that is currently active for working on in a model view

    Newly created, copied, or moved model objects comply with the work plane. For example, shifting the work plane to follow a sloped plane makes it easier to model sloped structures.

    parallel to the plane where you want to create the meshreinforcement that represents a mesh of steel bars in two perpendicular directions

    In Tekla Structures, the reinforcement mesh bars in one direction are called main bars and reinforcement mesh bars perpendicular to them are called crossing bars.

    array:

    • to the entire part, pick the starting point of the mesh

    • to a selected area, pick points to define the polygonal shape of the mesh

  2. Click the middle mouse button to create the reinforcement mesh array.
