Split rebar and add coupler
Split rebar and add coupler splits a reinforcing bar groupgroup of reinforcing bars that are side by side and have identical properties, except the possible variation in bar lengths
and adds couplers in relation to the direction of the picked points.
Split rebar and add coupler is a part of Rebar Coupler and Anchor Tools. Rebar Coupler and Anchor Tools is a set of four components that help to model and manage
- 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.
couplers that connect two bars
- end anchors that are devices at the unreserved end of the bar.
The following components are part of Rebar Coupler and Anchor Tools :
In addition, you can manage the user-defined attributes (UDAs) of the Rebar Coupler and Anchor Tools with the Rebar Coupler and Anchor Tools: Update rebar attributes component.
- Round parts
The parts are connected between two reinforcing bar groups.
|Staggered couplers with split reinforcing bars.|
- Double-click Split rebar and add coupler to open the component properties.
- Click Split rebar with coupler.
- Select the reinforcing bar or bar group to be split.
- Pick the first split point.
- Pick the second split point.
This point defines the line at which the reinforcing bar or bar group is split and couplers are inserted.
- Pick the third point.
This point defines the side of the main reinforcing bar or bar group. This is needed if you have applied different properties for the first bar or group and the second bar or group.
- Repeat the steps 3 - 6, or press Esc to cancel picking.
All couplers are automatically added to the parent part of the reinforcing bar. This allows them to be shown in reports and drawings because they are added to the sub-assemblyassembly in a nested assembly that is subordinate to a parent assembly
of the cast unit.
In some cases the reinforcing bars can move outside of the concrete. This may happen with reinforcing bars that are modeled with two points (straight bars and straight bars with hooks). If the reinforcing bars move outside of the concrete, change the cover thickness to either a negative or a positive value depending on what is required.
Two report templates Rebar Extra Fabrication Length.rpt and Rebar Thread Length.rpt can be used to inquire Threaded Length and Extra Fab. Length of the reinforcing bars in the BOMs or BOQs.
