About the pour type property

You can use the Pour type property to describe pour objects.

When you create or copy a cast-in-place concretecast unit type where the concrete is formed, poured, and cured in its final position

part, Tekla Structures automatically creates a pour objectbuilding object that is formed of one or more cast-in-place concrete parts, or parts of cast-in-place concrete parts

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.

of it. By default, Tekla Structures uses the part name as the Pour type property of the pour object. The default pour typeproperty of a pour object that uses a cast-in-place part name or a manually given value to describe the pour object

By default, the part name is used for pour type. The part name used is the name of the part with the largest volume in the pour object.

is enclosed in square brackets [ ] and it will be automatically updated if you change the part name. If you modify the pour type, the brackets are automatically removed, the modified pour type you enter replaces the default value, and the pour type no longer automatically changes by the part name.

Merging pour objects

When pour objects with default pour types in square brackets [ ] are merged to a larger pour object, the default pour type of the new pour object is the name of the part with the largest volume in the new pour object.

  1. Pour type = [SLABplate that represents a concrete structure

    In Tekla Structures, a slab is created by picking three or more points.

    Slab may be part of a floor, for example.

    ]
  2. Pour type = [BEAM]
  3. Pour type = [SLAB]

Splitting pour objects with pour breaks

When you create a pour breakbuilding object used to split a pour object into smaller pour objects

and split a pour object into smaller pour objects, the smaller pour objects inherit their properties from the original pour object.

When a pour object with the default pour type in square brackets [ ] is split, each new pour object also receives a default pour type by the part name, that is, the name of the part with the largest volume in the new pour object.

  1. Pour type = [SLAB]
  2. Pour type = [SLAB]
  3. Pour type = [BEAM]

If you have modified the pour type of the original pour object and the pour type is no longer in square brackets [ ], the modified pour type value is used also for the new pour objects.
