Precast foundation block (1028)

Precast foundation block (1028)

Precast foundation block (1028) creates a concrete foundation block. The block can be divided in three sections. All three sections can be dimensioned separately.

Parts created

  • Foundation block
  • Embedbuilding object that represents an object that is to be cast into a concrete structure and that is used to connect structures or as an aid when constructing a structure

    For example, a cast-in socket is an embed that is placed in concrete structures to allow parts to be bolted together on site. In Tekla Structures, embeds are modeled as steel sub-assemblies that are inside a concrete nested assembly.

  • Regulator

Situation Description

Precast foundation block with three sections.

Precast foundation block with one section.

Selection order

  1. Select the main part(1) part that exists in a building object and that determines the position number for the assembly or cast unit and the direction of assembly or cast unit drawings

    (1) Main part can be an assembly main part or a cast unit main part.

    (2) input part that the user selects first when creating a component

    (2) Connections and details always have a component main part.

    (concrete column).
  2. Pick a position.

    The detail is created automatically.

Picture tab

Use the Picture tab to dimension the foundation block.

The foundation block can be dimensioned in both the front viewdefault view that is created using the part’s or component’s coordinate system and that shows the part or component from the front direction

Part’s front view is a view on part plane created of the part’s front plane.

and in the side view.

  Description
1 Width of the top chord in section 1 (in front view).
2 Width of the inclined column cut-out.
3 Height of the column cut-out.
4 Offset of the plate that is under the block.

The offset is relative to the foundation block.

5 Thickness of the plate under the block.
6 Width of the bottom chord in section 1 (in front view).

Width of section 2 and section 3 (in front view).

7 Distance between the foundation block and the sides of the column.
8 Select how the sections in the foundation block are connected.
9 Select the reference point of the foundation block.

Additionally, you can set the vertical offset:

Component insertion point is at the bottom side of the foundation block.

Note that the red part (additional plate under the block) is not taken into account.

Component insertion point is at the bottom side of the cut-out of the column.

Component insertion point is at the bottom side of the column.

Component insertion point is at the top of the foundation block.
10 Width of the top chord in section 1 (in side view).
11 Distance from the bottom of the column to the foundation block.
12 Width of the bottom chord in section 1 (in side view).

Width of section 2 and section 3 (in side view).

13 Select the cast unit type.

Parts tab

Use the Parts tab to define the profiles for the foundation block, embed and regulator, and the embed dimensions.

Option Description
1 Foundation block profiles, regulator and embed properties.

If you do not select any material, Precast foundation block (1028) uses the same material as the column.

2 Select whether the regulator and the embed is created, and how they are connected to the foundation block.
3 Dimensions of the three sections of the foundation block.

Additionally, you can define the column cut-out in the upper section.

For sections 2 and 3 you can define the height of the inclined plane.

4 Dimensions of the embed.

Grooves tab

Use the Grooves tab to define the grooves.

Example:

  Description
1 Height of the groove.
2 Distance between the grooves.
3 First distance related to the bottom of the column.
4 Depth for the grooves.
5 Number for the grooves.
