Edge and Corner Reinforcement (62)

Edge and Corner Reinforcement (62)

Edge and Corner Reinforcement (62) creates edge and corner reinforcement for concrete panels and slabs. You can reinforce solid or sandwich precast concrete panels, or vertical and horizontal cast-in-situ slabs.

Objects created

  • Reinforcement

Use for

Situation

Description

Slab with edge and corner reinforcement and diagonal bars around openings

Limitations

Edge and Corner Reinforcement (62) does not create 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.

main reinforcement. The main reinforcement can be created using slab reinforcement components, for example, Pilecap reinforcement (76) , Pad footing (77) , Slab bars (18) , or Reinforcement mesh array in area (89). The main reinforcement can also be created by using the reinforcement creation commands on the Concrete tab.

Before you start

Create a panel or a slab.

Selection order

  1. Select the main part(1) part that exists in a building object and that determines the position number for the assembly or cast unit and the direction of assembly or cast unit drawings

    (1) Main part can be an assembly main part or a cast unit main part.

    (2) input part that the user selects first when creating a component

    (2) Connections and details always have a component main part.

    (panel or slab).

    The reinforcement is created automatically.

Picture tab

Use the Picture tab to control the edge and corner reinforcements, the cutouts, and the corner cutouts.

Reinforcement

Option

Description

Define how the corners are reinforced.

Diagonal corner bars are created to an opening.

Diagonal corner bars are not created to an opening.

Aligned with slab slope

Select whether or not the edge bars, diagonal bars and U bars are aligned with the slope of a slab that has different corner thicknesses.

The default value is Yes.

Cutouts

Option

Description

Edge bars are not created to the cutout.

Edge bars are created above the cutout for the defined length.

Edge bars are created above the cutout.

Edge bars are created to the cutout.

Reinforce opening

Select whether openings are reinforced.

Max block cut size

Define the size limit for the cutouts that affects the edge and corner reinforcement and the diagonal bar creation.

Edge and corner reinforcement are not created to cutouts that are smaller than the defined size.

Diagonal bars are not created to cutouts that are smaller than the defined size.

Corner cutouts

Option

Description

Edge bars on both sides of the corner cutout are bent.

This option overrides the Corner bar options 1, 2, and 3.

Both the edge bars and the U bars are moved a distance equal to the length of the shorter side of the cutout.

No bars are moved. Edge bars are created as if there was no cutout.

Max corner cut out size

Define the size limit for the corner cutouts.

Edge or corner reinforcement are not created to cutouts that are smaller than the defined size.

Min hole size

Define a size limit for the holes.

Edge and corner reinforcements are not created around holes that are smaller than the size limit. If the hole is not rectangular or round, the size of the hole is determined by the maximum dimension of the bounding box around the hole.

For example, if you do not want to create edge or corner reinforcement around holes that are 200 mm or smaller, enter 200.

Edge/Diag bars tab

Use the Edge bars and Diag bars tabs to control the edge and diagonal 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, reinforcing bar overlapping, and concrete cover thickness.

Reinforcing bar properties

Option

Description

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.

Bending radius

Edge bar bending radius.

Class

Use the Class to group reinforcing bars.

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

Reinforcing bar overlap

Option

Description

L1, L2, L3

Reinforcing bar overlapping length.

Number of reinforcing bars

Number of reinforcing bars in the reinforcing bar group.

Create as one group

Select whether the identical edge bars and diagonal bars are created as a group.

The default value is Yes.

Concrete cover thickness

Option

Description

C1, C2, C3, C4

Bottom, top, and side concrete cover thickness for the edge and the diagonal bars.

Minimum bar length

Option

Description

Minimum bar length

Minimum length of the edge bars on the Edge bars tab.

If the bar is shorten than the entered value, the bar is not created.

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 bar properties and spacing.

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

Position of scanning plane

Option

Description

1

U bar offset.
