Wall panel reinforcement / Double wall edge and opening reinforcement

Wall panel reinforcement / Double wall edge and opening reinforcement

Wall Panel Reinforcement is used for detailing single precast 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.

panels. It includes the reinforcement for the panel edges, around the openings, a meshreinforcement that represents a mesh of steel bars in two perpendicular directions

In Tekla Structures, the reinforcement mesh bars in one direction are called main bars and reinforcement mesh bars perpendicular to them are called crossing bars.

for the whole panel and additional bars, for example, with a wall shoe connection. Double wall edge and opening reinforcement is used for detailing double walls by connecting two panels to each other. It includes the reinforcement for the panel edges and around the openings.

Object created

  • Reinforcement
  • Stirrups
  • Mesh (for single panels)

Use for

Situation Description

Wall panel reinforcement with openings and reinforcement in the panel edges and around openings.

Double wall with opening and reinforcement around the opening.

Ring reinforcement goes around both shells.

All reinforcing bars that connect the shells (U-bars and stirrups) are attached to the shell that is selected at creation.

Ring, beam and column reinforcing bars are attached to the selected shell that has been the input.

Selection order

  1. Select the concrete part to reinforce.

    The reinforcement is created automatically.

Picture tab

Use the Picture tab to select how the corners of a wall panel are reinforced.

Option Description

Corner reinforcement

Select how the corners are reinforced and the bar is offset on both sides of the corner.

Minimum breaking distance

Cuts smaller than this value are ignored and the reinforcing bars are not cut.

Rebar count

Creates a single layer of reinforcement.

Creates two layers of reinforcement.

Cover thickness

Distance from the edge of the wall panel to the side of the outermost bar.

Door minimal height

Cuts greater than this value are considered as door openings and the additional reinforcing bars that are needed, for example, in shoe connections are not created.

This option is available in Wall panel reinforcement.

Create stirrups priority

Select whether horizontal or vertical reinforcing bars are on top.

Minimum edge length

The edge stirrups are not created if the dimension is less than the defined minimum value.

Reinforcement tab

Use the Reinforcement tab to create the reinforcing bars around the wall panel edges.

Option Description

Wall panel edge reinforcement type

Creates normal reinforcement.

Creates U reinforcement.

Mesh

Select whether a mesh is created for the whole panel.

If a mesh is created, you can define the mesh properties, or use custom settings.

You can use the Mesh Bars component to create the mesh.

This option is available in Wall panel reinforcement.

Create edge reinforcement

Select whether reinforcement is created at the edges.

If you select Yes , define the horizontal and vertical reinforcing bar properties.

This option is available in Double wall edge and opening reinforcement.

Horizontal reinforcing bars

Define the horizontal reinforcing bar properties for the wall panel edges.

Note that horizontal bars have three sets of properties, depending on the length of the bar.

For example, if the length of the main bar is less than 3000, it uses the options on the left, if in between 3000 and 6000, the middle options and if greater than 6000, the options on the right.

Vertical reinforcing bars

Define the vertical reinforcing bar properties for the wall panel edges.

Note that vertical bars have two sets of properties, depending on the length of the bar.

U Reinforcement

Define the U reinforcing bar properties.

Each side of the wall panel has a separate set of U reinforcing bar properties.

Opening tab

Use the Opening tab to create the reinforcing bars around the wall panel opening.

Option Description

Opening reinforcement type

Can be set for all four opening edges.

Creates normal reinforcement.

Creates U reinforcement.

Horizontal reinforcing bars

Define the horizontal reinforcing bar properties.

Note that horizontal bars have separate sets of properties for the top and the bottom bars.

Vertical reinforcing bars

Define the vertical reinforcing bar properties.

U Reinforcement

Define the U reinforcing bar properties.

Each side of the opening has a separate set of U reinforcing bar properties.

Diagonals tab

Use the Diagonals tab to create diagonal reinforcing bars at the corners of the openings.

Option Description

Create diagonals

Select whether diagonal reinforcing bars are created or not.

Diagonals count

Number of diagonal reinforcing bars.

Size

Select the diameter of a bar.

Grade

Define the strength of the steel used in the bars.

Bending radius

Define the bar bending radius.

L1 and L2

L1 + L2: Length of the diagonal reinforcing bars.

C

Distance between the diagonal reinforcing bar and the corner of the opening.

Column tab

Use the Column tab to a create column reinforcement.

Option Description

Column reinforcement

Column reinforcement is as high as the part.

Column reinforcement does not reach higher than the top edge of opening.

Column reinforcement is approximately the L value higher than opening edge.

Column reinforcement is approximately the L value lower than the opening edge.

Column reinforcement properties

Select whether column reinforcing bars are created or not.
  • Minimum column height H : cuts and openings smaller than the minimum value are not taken into account in the column creation.
  • Maximum column width B : if the width between two openings or cuts or edges is greater than the maximum value, then the column reinforcement is not created.
  • Column height offset L1 : distance between the column reinforcement end and the opening edge.
  • Column height offset L2 : same as L1 but for the bottom part of column reinforcement.

Main reinforcing bars

Define the main reinforcing bar properties.

Note that main bars have three sets of properties, depending on the width of the column.

Stirrup type

Select the stirrup type.

Reinforcing stirrups

Define the stirrup properties.

Note that stirrups have three sets of properties, depending on the width of the column.

Beam tab

Use the Beam tab to create a beam reinforcement on top of the opening.

Option Description

Beam reinforcement properties

Select whether beam reinforcing bars are created or not.
  • Maximum beam height Hmax : distance from the top edge of the wall to the top edge of the opening. If the height is greater than the maximum, then the beam reinforcement is not created.
  • Minimum beam length Lmin : distance between the sides of the opening. If the width of the opening is less than the minimum, then the beam reinforcement is not created.

Top

Define the beam top reinforcement properties.

Note that the reinforcing bars have two sets of properties, depending on the length of the beam.

Bottom

Define the beam bottom reinforcement properties.

Note that the reinforcing bars have two sets of properties, depending on the length of the beam.

Stirrup type

Select the stirrup type.

Reinforcing stirrups

Define the stirrup properties.

Note that stirrups have two sets of properties, depending on the length of the beam.

Additional tab

Use the Additional tab to create additional horizontal and vertical reinforcing bars. This tab is available in Wall panel reinforcement.

Option Description

Additional reinforcing bars

Select whether additional reinforcing bars are created or not.

Define the additional reinforcing bar properties.

Attributes tab

Use the Attributes tab to control the 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.

properties of the created parts.

Option Description

Prefix

Define a prefix for the part position number.

Start number

Define a start number for the part position number.

Name

Define a name for the part.

Tekla Structures uses the name in drawings and reports.

Class

Define the part class number.
