Hole reinforcement for slabs and walls (84)

Hole reinforcement for slabs and walls (84)

Hole reinforcement for slabs and walls (84) creates a holesmall hollow open throughout a part or assembly that is usually used for fastening parts with bolts or other such objects

Hole is created in the same way as bolts and hole properties are defined in the bolt properties.

in a concrete 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.

or 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.

and reinforcement around the hole.

Bars created

  • Straight bars along hole edges

  • Diagonal bars close to hole corners

  • U-shaped edge bars

Use for

Situation

More information

Rectangular or round holes in concrete slabs and walls

 

Straight and edge bars only, no diagonal bars.

Diagonal and edge bars only, no straight bars.

Hole rotated from the direction of the slab.

One diagonal bar at each corner.

Different number of bars on each side of the hole in the wall. No diagonal bars.

Before you start

  • Create the concrete slab or wall.

  • Calculate the required area of reinforcement.

Selection order

  1. Select the center of the hole.

  2. Select the concrete slab or wall.

Horizontal and vertical bars tab

Use the Horizontal and vertical bars tab to define which bars are closest to the surface of the concrete, and the properties of bar groups along the sides of the hole.

The slab or wall direction defines the direction of the hole and which bars are to the left and right of, and above and below the hole.
