Double-tee beam (51)

Double-tee beam (51)

Double-tee beam (51) creates flexural, shear, and flange reinforcement for a double-tee beam.

Objects created

Reinforcement meshes.

Use for

Situation

Description

Double-tee with reinforcement.

  • Prestress straight or depressed strands for flexural reinforcement in double-tee stems

  • Mild longitudinal bars for flexural reinforcement in double-tee stems

  • Meshreinforcement that represents a mesh of steel bars in two perpendicular directions

    In Tekla Structures, the reinforcement mesh bars in one direction are called main bars and reinforcement mesh bars perpendicular to them are called crossing bars.

    for shear reinforcementreinforcement provided to resist shear force

    Shear reinforcement in beams is in form of stirrups and in columns in form of ties.

    in double-tee stems

  • Stirrups in double-tee stems

  • Reinforcement meshreinforcement that represents a mesh of steel bars in two perpendicular directions

    In Tekla Structures, the reinforcement mesh bars in one direction are called main bars and reinforcement mesh bars perpendicular to them are called crossing bars.

    in the double-tee flange

  • Transverse and longitudinal mild 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.

    in the ends and sides of the double-tee flange

  • Reinforcement around openings and notches in the double-tee flange

Before you start

  • Create a concrete double-tee beam.

  • Calculate the required area and quantity of strands and other reinforcement.

  • Define other reinforcement properties, such as debonding and pull values.

Selection order

  1. Select the double-tee beam. The reinforcement is created automatically.
