Tekla Structures treats reinforcing bars as identical, and gives them the same number, if the following properties are the same:
Numbering seriesset of identifiers defined by the user, based on which Tekla Structures compares parts, assemblies, cast units, or reinforcement with each other during the numbering and gives position numbers
Numbering series is defined by a prefix and a start number.
The user can, for example, allocate separate numbering series to different phases or part types.
Classpart property that groups parts according to identifiers given by the user
The identifiers of classes are usually numbers. Classes can be used for defining the color of parts in the model, for example. Class does not influence the numbering of model objects.
does not affect numberingprocess of assigning position numbers to parts, cast units, assemblies, or reinforcement
In Tekla Structures, the position numbers assigned in the numbering are shown in marks and templates, for example.
. Tekla Structures gives the same number to identical reinforcing bars that belong to different classes.
The modeling direction of tapered 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.
groups affects numbering. This means that identical bar groups with different modeling directions receive different numbers.
The bar length rounding, step tapering, and some other rebar set settings affect bar geometry and thus the numbering of rebar set bars. The rounding settings that are defined in the rebar_config.inp file for drawings and reports do not affect numbering.
