These are the settings for placing reinforcement around openings created by:
- editing Wall profile or making openings with voids - Opening reinforcement.
- Family of Door Category - Door reinforcement.
- Family of Window Category - Window reinforcement.
Edge Rebar - straight rebar on the sides of the Door opening.
Copy from Opening/Window - reinforcement settings will be copied from Opening or Window settings.
New item - add as many rows as you need to define the number of required rebars. Parameters for the new row will be copied from the selected row.
Remove Item - remove selected row of settings
Move up/down - move selected row up or down
Count - how many rebars will be created along wall layer thickness with this row of settings. Possible values: 1 or 2; if more are needed, a new row should be created.
Min/Max door width - filter the size of openings for which this row of settings should be applied
Rebar bar type - select rebar Type
Side - select on which side of the opening rebar should be created. Left/Right is as you would look from the external side of the wall.
Length - there are few options here:
- Extension - rebar will be extended to both sides from the edge of the opening by the distance defined in the Anchorage length parameter.
- To the Top - rebar will be extended to the top of the wall but also toward the bottom by the distance defined in Anchorage length parameter.
- To the Bottom- rebar will be extended to the bottom of the wall but also toward the top by the distance defined in Anchorage length parameter.
- Top to Bottom - rebar will go from the top to the bottom of the wall.
Left/Right options are analogous to Top/Bottom.
Anchorage length - distance from opening edge to the end of the rebar
Position - position in the wall thickness direction. Depending on the selection, Interior, Exterior cover parameters will be available.
Edge Cover - distance from opening edge to the side of the rebar
Interior Cover - distance from the interior side of wall layer to the side of the rebar
Exterior Cover - distance from the exterior side of wall layer to the side of the rebar
End Cover - distance from the rebar end to the boundary of the wall
Bend Bar at Edges - if there is no space for anchorage distance, bar will be bend
Diagonal Rebar - 45 degrees rebar at the corners of the Door opening.
Side - could be at both opening corners on the Top, Bottom or Top&Bottom.
Bar length - length of the rebar, which is with the same distance to both sides from the corner of the opening.
U/O stirrups - U and O shape stirrups around the Door openings.
Min Length - if the actual bar length is less than this value, the bar will not be created.
Bar length - length of the bar
Spacing - spacing between bars
Equal offsets - it will set equal distance from opening edges to the first/last stirrup. The layout is centered with the door edges.
Start offset - distance from the Bottom/Left of the opening. Entering a negative value will extend outside the edge of the opening.
End offset - distance from the Top/Right of the opening. Entering a negative value will extend outside the edge of the opening.
Create O-stirrup - available only if U-shape stirrup is selected. It will create O-shape rebar if the distance to the wall edge is smaller than the Bar length and the full U-shape rebar length doesn't fit.
Width for O-Stirrup - available only if U-shape stirrup is selected. It will create O-shape rebar if the solid width from the Door opening to the wall edge is smaller than the defined distance. So, in this case, it will extend U-shape bar and turn it into O-shape bar.
Rebar hook type - hook type for O-shape rebar. Will be used on both ends of the rebar.
