The PEB End platecomponent object that represents a plate welded perpendicular to the end of the component secondary part
to flange rotated allows you to create an end plate(1) part that represents a flat structure
(1) In some contexts, for example in analysis, the term plate object may be used to refer to plates.
(2) plate that represents a steel structure
(2) Plate is mainly used as a connection piece or as a floor plate.
connection between a PEB member connecting member end to a PEB member flange. The connection is similar to a seating / end plate connection.
How to locate
The installers are available at Pre-Engineered Building Tools for Tekla Structures version 21.0 and above.
After installation, PEB End plate to flange rotated will be available in the Applications & Components.
Click PEB End plate to flange rotated 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.
. The input components should be PEB member. The primary and secondary web should be perpendicular and the rotation angle of the secondary should be 90 degrees.
|Offset center condition||No offset condition|
Interior column connection:
Select the rafter component first, and then the column component as input for an interior column connection.
End plate connection:
Select the primary component first, and then the secondary component as input for an end plate connection.
You can change the basic inputs for the connection on this tab.
End plate length options
|Both side projection||Projection at both sides from web line|
|Outer flange projection and total length||Projection from outer flange side web line and total length of plate|
Insert plate option
|Without insert plate|
|With insert plate|
Primary flange cutting
|Cut flange||Cut the bottom flange of primary to fit insert plate|
|No flange cut||Not cutting of bottom flange of primary to fit insert plate|
End plate and insert plate can be defined from here. You can modify various values based on the end plate length options and insert plate options.
Define the gapany space between two objects
The term ’gap’ is used in its general sense in Tekla Structures.
between the insert plate and primary member flange.
Number of long stiffeners
|One long stiffener|
|No long stiffeners|
Long stiffener orientation
Long stiffener the same as column orientation
|Long stiffener perpendicular to the end plate|
You can change the bolt diameter, bolt standard, tolerancepermissible amount by which the dimensions of a structure may vary from the work size specified
Tolerance is usually stated as a plus or minus dimension.
The term ’tolerance’ is used in its general sense in Tekla Structures.
In a model the term ’tolerance’ should not be used to refer to a gap.
, cut lengthbolt property that indicates the depth at which Tekla Structures searches for the sections of the bolted parts
Cut length determines whether the bolt will go through one flange or two, for example.
, bolt accessories etc on this tab.
Define updates to User Field 8 of bolt user attributes.
Unlike in other PEB connections, here Bolt XY list is provided considering the various connection conditions.
You can define part parameters such as width, thickness, part prefix, part number, material, name and classpart property that groups parts according to identifiers given by the user
The identifiers of classes are usually numbers. Classes can be used for defining the color of parts in the model, for example. Class does not influence the numbering of model objects.
on this tab. If plate profile name is default, it reads from Menu>Settings>Options>Components>ProfileNames>Plate. The same profile name is applicable for stiiffeners also.
Far and near stiffeners have separate options. Top weld notch can also be defined separately.
Weld notch value is common for all notches.
For this extension to work properly, the secondary member should cross both flanges of the primary member.
