Check the validity of reinforcement geometry

Check the validity of reinforcement geometry

Reinforcement creation or modification can result in invalid reinforcement geometry. For example, too big bending radius can cause invalid reinforcement geometry. If a model contains a reinforcement with invalid geometry, the reinforcement is not shown in the drawings. The reinforcement becomes visible and the drawings are updated when the geometry is corrected.


Reinforcement geometry validity check does not work with circular or curved 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.


  1. On the File menu, click Diagnose & Repair and in the Model area, click Diagnose.
  2. Check the results.

    If there are inconsistencies in the geometry, Tekla Structures displays a warning message, and draws a thin line between the reinforcement handles to show the invalid geometry.

    You can correct the reinforcement geometry by selecting the line and modifying the reinforcement properties.
