The following part-specific opening and area calculations are available for Hollowcore slabs. The calculations can be output with custom reports.

The report property names are:

  • CUSTOM.HC_GROSS_AREA : This is the gross area calculated by formularule stated in a mathematical language

    Formula is part of an equation.

    L*B , where L is the max length of the 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.

    and B is the width of the original hollow core slab section before any narrow cutting of the slab.
  • CUSTOM.HC_INSUL_CUT_L : This is the total linear length of insulation cutting measured along insulation edges where the edge of insulation is not overlapping with exterior edges of the slab.
  • CUSTOM.HC_NET_AREA : This is the net area of the hollow core slab. The net area is excluding all openings penetrating.
  • CUSTOM.HC_OPENINGS_L : This is the total perimeter length of all openings in the slab. The perimeter is measured along the “shape boundary” of the opening.
  • CUSTOM.HC_RECESSES_L : This is the total perimeter of recesses (not fully penetrating the slab thickness). The perimeter is measured along the “shape boundary” of the recess.
  • CUSTOM.HC_SAWINGS_END_L : This is the total linear length of skew end sawings in the slab. Please note that the straight ends are not counted to the total sawing length.
  • CUSTOM.HC_SAWINGS_END_N : This is the total number of individual sawing lines.
  • CUSTOM.HC_SAWINGS_SIDE : This is the total length of sawing parallel to center axis of the slab.

In Template Editortool in Tekla Structures that is used for creating and modifying templates to be used in drawings and reports

these attributes are located in the CUSTOM subfolder in the Attribute dialog box.
