shows standard, environment-specific reinforcing bars and strands of the environment (or environments) that you have installed and that is currently open. The blank project environment only contains undefined reinforcing bars and strands.

You can add, copy, group, modify, and delete rebar definitions. You can also import and export single definitions, groups of definitions, or entire rebar catalogs.

Tekla Structures stores the rebar catalog information in the rebar_database.inp file that is by default saved to the current modelmodel that is active in Tekla Structures

The current model can be a single-user model, a shared model or a working model.


Reinforcement meshes are not included in the rebar catalog. Standard meshes are defined in their own catalog file, mesh_database.inp.
