This connection can transfer much bigger shear force than similar connection having cable loops instead of loops made of reinforcing barreinforcement that represents a steel bar used to reinforce a concrete structure
The steel bars are usually ribbed and they are used to increase the tensile strength of concrete.
On the construction site vertical reinforcing bars are placed within the loops before casting concrete between the elements.
1. Purpose and description
This extension connects two precast concrete wallplate that represents a structure such as a wall or roof panel
In Tekla Structures, a panel is created by picking two or more points.
In cast-in-place concrete the term wall refers to a concept similar to panel.
elements. This connection can be used for example in stair case where the wall elements are used to stiffen the whole building against wind loads. Note that angle between walls must be 90 degrees.
2. Using Wall Panel Corner Connection
The connection can be created from Component catalogcatalog that contains all system components and custom components, and the macros and applications
The term component catalog is used in Tekla Structures until version 21.1.
. The connection name is “Wall Panel Corner Connection”.
After starting the connection:
- Select the primary wall part in the model.
- Select the secondary wall part in the model.
|Fit Primary Wall||Select Yes, if the walls are connected in a corner. Select No, if the secondary wall is connected on the side of a longer wall that continues through the connection|
