Edge and Corner Reinforcement (62): Horizontal/Vertical U bars tab

Edge and Corner Reinforcement (62): Horizontal/Vertical U bars tab

Use the Horizontal U bars and Vertical U bars tabs to control the U bar leg length, concrete cover thickness and 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.

properties and spacing in the Edge and Corner Reinforcement (62) modeling tool.

U bar length

Option

Description

1

U bar leg length.

2

Top, bottom, and side concrete cover thickness for U bars.

Reinforcing bars

Option

Description

Create U bar

Select whether the U bars are created.

In addition, on the Vertical U bars tab, you can select whether the vertical U bars are created using the same settings as the horizontal U bars.

Same as horizontal and inside : vertical U bars use the same reinforcing bar settings and concrete cover value as the horizontal U bars, and the vertical U bars are placed so that they fit inside the horizontal U bars.

Same as horizontal and outside : vertical U bars use the same reinforcing bar settings and concrete cover value as the horizontal U bars, and the vertical U bars are placed outside the horizontal U bars.

Prefix

Prefix for the part position number.

Start number

Starting number for the part position number.

Name

Name that is shown in drawings and reports.

Size

Diameter of the reinforcing bar.

Grade

Strength of the steel used in reinforcing bars.

Class

Use the Class to group reinforcing bars.

For example, you can display reinforcing bars of different classes in different colors.

Bending radius

U bar bending radius.

U bar creation and spacing

Option

Description

Ignore cuts smaller than

Cuts that are smaller than the entered value are ignored and do not affect the U bar placement.

Creation method

Select how the U bars are distributed.

Number of reinforcing bars

Number of U bars in the reinforcement.

This field is available if you set the Creation method to Equal distribution by number of reinforcing bars.

Target spacing value

Target spacing value.

Tekla Structures tries to distribute the U bars as closely as possible according to the entered value.

This field is available if you set he Creation method to Equal distribution by target spacing value.

Exact spacing value

Exact spacing value.

Tekla Structures creates fixed, equal spaces between the reinforcing bars.

By exact spacing

Define several spacing values between the U bars.

Tekla Structures distributes the bars using the values you enter in the field.

Enter all spacing values, separated by spaces. You can use multiplication to repeat spacing values. For example, enter 5*200 to create five spaces of 200 mm.

End distance

Horizontal U bars:

Vertical U bars:

Option

Description

1

U bar distance from the panel or the slab end.

Stirrups

Stirrups are created instead of U bars when the distance between the edges in the panel or 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.

is so small that the U bars do not get the required cover thickness.

Position of scanning plane

Option

Description

1

U bar offset.
