Reinforcement Sequence Numbering

Purpose and description

This plugin enables the user to number each rebar, meshreinforcement that represents a mesh of steel bars in two perpendicular directions

In Tekla Structures, the reinforcement mesh bars in one direction are called main bars and reinforcement mesh bars perpendicular to them are called crossing bars.

or strandreinforcement that represents a group of wires spun together

starting for each cast unit with 1. That way the numbers are drawing based and every cast unit drawingdrawing that displays information on concrete parts, including reinforcement, cast-in embeds, edge chamfers, and insulation, in a cast unit

Cast unit drawings are generally used either at the element factory or at the construction site.

start with 1 for the reinforcements.

Installing the Reinforcement Sequence Numbering Extension

The installation package can be found here
After the installation, the Reinforcement Sequence Numberingprocess of assigning position numbers to parts, cast units, assemblies, or reinforcement

In Tekla Structures, the position numbers assigned in the numbering are shown in marks and templates, for example.

Extension can be found in the component catalogcatalog that contains all system components and custom components, and the macros and applications

The term component catalog is used in Tekla Structures until version 21.1.


Using the Reinforcement Sequence Numbering Extension

With a double-click on the icon, you start the extension from the component cataloguser interface for displaying or modifying information in categorized lists

For example, profile catalog and shape catalog are catalogs.

. The following dialog box opens:

Select the reinforcement, parts, cast units or pour units and start the numbering by pushing the "Perform numbering" button.


Additional Information about the order of the reinforcement numbers

Additional information

  • At the moment the Pour numbering is using only the pour unitentity that combines together a pour object and the other building objects that need to be in place before cast-in-place concrete can be poured

    The needed building objects can be reinforcement and embeds, for example.

    to define which parts belong to which pour. In the future, we will also have the option to use the pour objectbuilding object that is formed of one or more cast-in-place concrete parts, or a part of a cast-in-place concrete part

    The cast-in-place concrete parts are merged into one pour object if they have the same material grade and pour phase, and if they touch each other. Pour objects are visible in pour view.
