Round column reinforcement (82)

Round column reinforcement (82)

Round column reinforcement (82) creates reinforcement for a concrete column that has a round cross sectiongeometrical form of a part sectioned perpendicular to its axis

.

Objects created

  • Longitudinal main bars (6)

  • Stirrups

  • Column end reinforcement

Use for

Situation Description

Round concrete column with main bars bent outside the column. Continuous spiral stirrup.

Round concrete column with straight main bars protruding from the column, or entirely inside the column. Separate stirrups. Top of the column is reinforced.

Limitations

Do not use for rectangular columns.

Selection order

  1. Select the main part(1) part that exists in a building object and that determines the position number for the assembly or cast unit and the direction of assembly or cast unit drawings

    (1) Main part can be an assembly main part or a cast unit main part.

    (2) input part that the user selects first when creating a component

    (2) Connections and details always have a component main part.

    (column).

    The component is created automatically when the part is selected.

Main bars tab

Use the Main bars tab to control the length of the vertical and horizontal extensions of the main bars at the top and bottom of the column, the thickness of the concrete cover over stirrups, and the cranking of the main bars.

Main bar properties

Option Description
Number of bars Number of main bars.
Rotation Rotation of main bars.
Grade Strength of the steel used in the reinforcing bars.
Size Diameter of the main bars.
Bending radius Bending radius of the main bars.
Class

Use Class to group reinforcement.

For example, you can display reinforcement of different classes in different colors.

Name

Name for the main bars.

Tekla Structures uses the name in drawings and reports.

Prefix Prefix for the part position number.
Start number Start number for the part position number.

Cranking

You can create cranked reinforcing bars at the top of the column. Enter the horizontal distance dimensions for the bars.

Stirrups tab

Use the Stirrups tab to control the thickness of the concrete cover over the stirrups at the top and bottom of the column, spacing and number of stirrups or laps in each stirrup group, stirrup types and stirrup shapes.

Stirrup dimensions

  1. Thickness of the concrete cover over the stirrups at the top and the bottom of the column. The default cover thickness is 50 mm.

    Group 1 is the top stirrup group, 5 is the bottom stirrup group. Group 3 is always created.

  2. Spacing of stirrups in each stirrup group.

  3. Number of stirrups in each stirrup group.

  4. Select how the stirrups are distributed.

    • Exact space, flexible at ends : Tekla Structures uses exactly the spacing value you specify, and evens out the stirrup distribution at the column ends.

    • Target space : Tekla Structures creates the stirrups at even spacings and tries to use the spacing value you specify.

Stirrup types

Option Description

Separate stirrups

Single, continuous spiral stirrup

Separate spiral stirrups

Single, continuous stirrup

Stirrup shape

Select the shape of the stirrup from the list.

Stirrup overlap

Select the angle or the length of stirrup overlap. The option is not active if you have created spiral stirrups.

The overlapping angle can be of maximum 180 degrees.

The overlapping length can be in millimeters or inches.

Stirrup attributes tab

Use the Stirrup attributes tab to control the grade, size, classpart property that groups parts according to identifiers given by the user

The identifiers of classes are usually numbers. Classes can be used for defining the color of parts in the model, for example. Class does not influence the numbering of model objects.

, name, and numberingprocess of assigning position numbers to parts, cast units, assemblies, or reinforcement

In Tekla Structures, the position numbers assigned in the numbering are shown in marks and templates, for example.

Advanced (main bars) tab

Use the Advanced (main bars) tab to control the main bar extensions separately for each bar in Round column reinforcement (82).

In Bar index , enter the bar number for which to define the extension. Define the size, the distance from the column edge and the length of each extension.

Select whether the main bars are tapered or moved according to the upper surface, if the top of the column is skewed.
