Modeling of floor bay (66)

Modeling of floor bay (66)

Modeling of floor bay creates an area of concrete slabs between two support lines that you define, for example, between two main frames. Support lines can be polylines or sloped.

Parts created

Concrete slabs.

Where to use

Situation

More information

Slab area created between two support lines.

Before you start

Create two support lines with two or more points.

Picking order

  1. Pick points to define the first support line. To finish, middle-click away from the last point picked.

  2. Pick points to define the second support line. To finish, middle-click away from the last point picked.

  3. Pick a point to indicate the origin of the slabs.

  4. Pick a point to indicate the direction of the slabs.

Parameters tab

Use the Parameters tab to define the position of 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.

.

Property

Description

The position of the slab relative to the origin line picked when creating the slab.

The options are center of profile (default) or center of seam.

Select the slab spacing and enter the appropriate dimension. The options are seam (default) or center to center.

If you select the seam option, the bottom dimension is enabled. If you select the center-to-center otion, the upper dimension is enabled.

Slab offsets from support lines 1 and 2.

Vertical position of the slab.

The options are Top (default), Center or Bottom.

Enter an optional offset value.

Projection type

Defines how the slabs are spaced on a sloping floor bay.

Projection type

Use the Projection type field to define how to handle slab spacing or seams on a sloping floor bay. The options are Global (default), Support line 1, Support line 2, or Both support lines.

  • Global: the centers of the slabs remain constant, seam spacing adjusts.

  • Support line 1: Seam spacing on support line 1 does not adjust (effect exaggerated here):

  • Support line 2: Seam spacing on support line 2 does not adjust (effect exaggerated here):

  • Both support lines: Seam spacing is calculated at the average plane position between both support lines

Along this line, center to center and seam width are exactly as entered in the dialog box.

Support line 2

Plane between support lines 1 and 2

Support line 1

Profiles tab

Use the Profiles tab to define the properties of the slab profiles.

Index list

Use the Index list to specify different profiles, seam width, and various cutting options for specific slabs or seams.

Input the values individually, or in a list:

Examples for slabs

If the origin point is the center of slab:

If the origin point is the center of seam:

Examples for seams

If the origin point is the center of slab:

If the origin point is the center of seam:

Adjustment type

Use the Adjustment type to define the type of adjustment for the selected slab. The options are:

  • Default - Use the default slab profile.

  • Profile - Use the specific slab profile.

  • Cut left side - Cut the left side of the profile. If no profile is defined, uses the default slab profile.

  • Cut right side - Cut the right side of the profile. If no profile is defined, uses the default slab profile.

  • Cut both sides - Cut both sides of the profile. If no profile is defined, uses the default slab profile.

  • Seam width - Adjust the seam width.

Profile/Seam Width

Depending on which adjustment type option you choose, defines:

  • The width of the default slab profile.

  • The width of the specified profile.

  • Seam width.

Examples

These examples show how to use the Modeling of floor bay (66) component.

Example 1:

  1. Pick 2 points (1, 2) to define support line 1.

  2. To finish, middle-click.

  3. Pick 2 points to define support line 2.

  4. To finish, middle-click.

  5. Pick a point to indicate the origin of the slab.

  6. Pick a point to indicate the direction of the slab.

    Tekla Structures creates the floor bay.

Example 2:

  1. Pick 2 points to define support line 1.

  2. To finish, middle-click.

  3. Pick 4 points to define support line 2.

  4. To finish, middle-click.

  5. Pick a point to indicate the origin of the slab.

  6. Pick a point to indicate the direction of the slab.

    Tekla Structures creates the floor bay.
