Reinforce pour objects using Rebar shape catalog
You can reinforce pour objects in pour views using Rebar shape catalog.
Rebar shape catalog is the only method to reinforce pour objects in pour views. If you want to use other reinforcement commands, such as Bar group , or reinforcement components, you need to reinforce single parts in part views. All reinforcement are visible both in part views and in pour views.
When you reinforce pour objects:
The reinforcement is attached to the reinforced part, not to the pour objectbuilding object that is formed of one or more cast-in-place concrete parts, or a part of a cast-in-place concrete part
The cast-in-place concrete parts are merged into one pour object if they have the same material grade and pour phase, and if they touch each other. Pour objects are visible in pour view.
The reinforcement geometry is defined in accordance with the pour object geometry even though the reinforcement is attached to a part. For example, pour breaks can limit the length of reinforcing bars.
In reports the reinforcement information is listed according to the part, not to the pour object.
Before you start, create concrete parts whose cast unit typeproperty of a concrete part in a cast unit that defines if the structure type of the part is precast or cast in place
is Cast in place. Tekla Structures automatically forms pour objects of them.
- Ensure that you are using a pour viewview that displays cast-in-place concrete parts merged into pour objects
The cast-in-place concrete parts are merged into one pour object if they have the same material grade and if they touch each other.
. If not, click Pour view on the Concrete tab.
By default, the pour objects are shown in pink.
- If needed, create pour breaks by selecting any of the Pour break commands on the Concrete tab:
- To insert a reinforcement to a pour object, on the Concrete tab click Rebar and select Rebar shape catalog.
The Rebar Shape Catalog dialog box opens.
- Select a shape from the tree view on the left and modify the properties, if needed.
- Click OK.
- In the model, place the mouse pointer over a face or an edge of a pour object.
- Based on the preview, select a placing for the reinforcement and click the left mouse button to create the reinforcement.
