Wall groove seam detail

Wall groove seam detail

Wall groove seam detail creates a groove with optional shear teeth to a 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.

, a 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.

or a similar part. Additionally the connection can create 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.

loops or embeds that work as connectors in the walls.

Objects created

  • Groove
  • Shear teeth or shear cups
  • U bars
  • Embeds
  • Long bar

Use for

Situation Description

Groove with shear teeth and U bars.

Selection order

  1. Select the wall or slab.
  2. Pick the start point of the groove.
  3. Pick the end point of the groove.

Edge shape tab

Use the Edge shape tab to select the orientation of the groove.

Option Description

Groove orientation selection.

Define the orientation of the groove in relation to the input points.

Create fitting

Select whether the part end fitting is created.

Groove edge shape.

Groove start and end point in relation to input points.

You can define the start point and the end point of the groove. If you do not enter a value, or enter 0 , the groove is applied at full height of the wall.

Select to create part cuts or only extra part cuts, and define the name of the cut. For part properties of extra part cuts, select a saved settings file.

Extra teeth tab

Use the Extra teeth tab to define the properties for additional shear teeth.

Option Description

Select whether additional shear teeth or shear cups are created.

Teeth or cups can also be created when there is no groove.

Dimensions of a single tooth or cup.

Location of the first tooth or cup in the groove, and the spacing between the teeth or cups.

You can enter a list of spaces, for example 10*400 , or just a single value. When you enter a single value, the number of teeth or cups is calculated automatically based on the height of the detail.

Select to create part cuts or only extra part cuts, and define the name of the cut.

Connectors tab

Use the Connectors tab to select the type of connectors.

Connector type

The content of the Connectors tab varies depending on the type of the selected connectors.

Option Description

Connector type.

  • No connectors. Only groove with or without shear teeth is created.
  • Connectors are created by using the selected embed (custom part).
  • Connectors are created by adding reinforcing bar loops. Reinforcing bar loop is formed depending on the framing type.

In addition, the connector can optionally create one or more long reinforcing bars along the connection.

Embeds and loose rebar

Option Description

Location of the first connector (embed) in the groove, location of the last rebar/embed in the wall top edge, and the spacing between the connectors.

You can enter a list of spaces, for example 10*400 , or just a single value, for example 300. When you enter a single value, the number of connectors is calculated automatically based on the height of the detail.

You can also define the extended length of the loose long bar.

Select which embeds (custom parts) are created in each groove.

If the embed has any saved attributes, select which attributes are used.

Offset of the embed.

By default, the embed input points are in the center of the groove.

U bars and loose rebar

Option Description

Location of the first connector (reinforcing bar loop) in the groove, and the spacing between the connectors.

You can enter a list of spaces, for example 10*400 , or just a single value, for example 300. When you enter a single value, the number of connectors is calculated automatically based on the height of the detail.

You can also define the extended length of the loose long bar.

Reinforcing bar loop dimensions.

The available dimension options depend on the orientation of the groove selected on the Edge shape tab.

Number of bars

Number of long loose bars

If you do not want to create a loose long bar, enter 0 as the Number of bars.

Reinforcing bar properties

Enter the properties for reinforcing bar Grade , Size , Name , Class , Prefix and Start Number.

Customization

If needed, you can create your own custom partcomponent for creating a part that cannot be created by using any existing part command or part profile

Typically, custom parts are used to create parts that have a complex composition. For example, castellated beams and sandwich panels are often created as custom parts.

(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.

) and use it as a connector.

When creating the embed, ensure that the input points are defined so that they are compatible with Wall groove seam detail. The image below shows examples of the input points.

Thickening tab

Use the Thickening tab to create an extra thicknening to the wall.

Option Description

Select to which side of the wall the thickening will be created. The final location of the extra thickening depends on the actual framing case (end to end, L corner, T corner).

Enter the name and class for the extra thickening. Leave the input box empty to use the wall name and/or class.
