Create a tapered or spiral reinforcing bar group

Create a tapered or spiral reinforcing bar group

For rectangular concrete parts it is sufficient to pick two points to define the distribution area of the reinforcing bar groupgroup of reinforcing bars that are side by side and have identical properties, except the possible variation in bar lengths

. If the part shape is not rectangular, an alternative shape can be selected.

Use the Rebar group type list on the Group tab in the Reinforcing Bar Properties dialog box to select and modify the reinforcing group types.

  1. On the Concrete tab, hold down Shift and click:

    The Reinforcing Bar Properties dialog box opens.

  2. If needed, enter or modify the bar properties.
  3. On the Group tab, select a tapered or spiral option from the Bar group type list.
  4. Click OK.
  5. Select the part to reinforce.

    Tekla Structures attaches the bar group to the part.

  6. Pick points to define the shape of the bar at the first cross sectiongeometrical form of a part sectioned perpendicular to its axis

    .
  7. Click the middle mouse button to finish picking.
  8. For the second and subsequent cross sections, pick points to define the shape of the bar.
  9. Click the middle mouse button to finish picking.

    Tekla Structures creates the reinforcement.

Reinforcing bar group types

Option Description Example

Normal

Not tapered.

Pick two points to define the distribution area of the bar group.

 

Tapered

One bar dimension changes linearly in the group.

Tapered ridge

One bar dimension changes linearly in the group. The dimension is longest in the middle of the group.

Tapered curved

One bar dimension changes along a curve. The dimension is longest in the middle of the group.

 

Tapered N

One bar dimension changes linearly between N ridges. Enter the number of ridges in the Number of cross sections box.

Spiral

The reinforcing bars rise in a polygonal or circular shape along the longitudinal axis of the part.
