Create a curved reinforcing bar group

You can reinforce curved segments in a concrete beam or a curved 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.


  1. On the Concrete tab, click Rebar and select Curved bar group.

    If you need to modify the properties before you create the reinforcement, hold down Shift and click the Curved bar group command to open the Curved bar properties.

  2. Select the part to reinforce.

    Tekla Structures attaches the bar group to this part.

  3. Pick three points on an arc to define the curve.

  4. Pick two points to indicate the distribution direction of the bars.

    Tekla Structures creates a group of curved reinforcing bars.
