Analysis, design and code requirements check results of ribbed or waffle slabs are displayed in the Ribbed-Waffle Reinforcements dialogue.

Location of Ribbed - Waffle Slab Reinforcements Dialogue

After analysis, you can access it by clicking on the Ribbed/Waffle Reinforcements command under the Concrete Design title of the ribbon menu Analysis and Design tab .

General Specifications of Ribbed-Waffle Reinforcements Dialogue

Summary Information

The summary information about the line where the cursor is located is given in the form of Story, Name, and Position in the name of the dialog.

For example, Story 4, D04, 1

Using the Shift key

In this tab, you can select more than one row with the Shift key, enter a value by double-clicking any cell whose value is open to change, and make that value apply to all selected rows.

Using the Ctrl key

Ctrl key, on the other hand, selects the lines in between one by one.

Reinforcement calculator

Calculates the amount of rebar, in area, for the selected diameter and span.

Previous

The cursor moves to the previous line.

Next

The cursor goes to the next line.

Ok

It saves the changes made and closes the dialog.

Cancel

Closes the dialog without saving the changes made.

Beams Tab

In this tab, the list of ribbed/waffle dimensions and rebar is given as a table.

Specifications

DS

It is the rebar fixing column. If marked, the rebar is fixed. When changes are made in the rebar , DS is marked automatically and when the re-calculation is made, the rebar remains constant.

ID

It is the name of the beam in the plan. (D1, D101, D10 etc.) In case of negativity, the term related to negativity is added next to the name. Like D101 (M) ... Each tile is listed by typical number of beam.

B, H

Beam is the width and height of the tooth, respectively. You can change the dimensions by double clicking in the B and H cells. When the size is changed, the dental rebar calculation is made for that beam according to the changed dimensions.

L-upper

It is the value in terms of number and diameter of the rebar located on the left support section of the beam. You can make changes by double-clicking the cell.

L-under

It is the value of the rebar under the left support section of the beam in terms of number and diameter. You can make changes by double-clicking the cell.

Mount

It is the value of the mounting rebar of the thread in terms of number and diameter. You can make changes by double-clicking the cell.

Bent-up

It is the value of the pleated rebar of the thread in terms of number and diameter. You can make changes by double-clicking the cell.

Straight

It is the value of the straight rebar of the thread in terms of number and diameter. You can make changes by double-clicking the cell.

R-upper

It is the value in terms of number and diameter of the rebar located on the right support section of the beam. You can make changes by double-clicking the cell.

R-under

It is the value of the rebar under the right support section of the beam in terms of number and diameter. You can make changes by double-clicking the cell.

Lateral

It is the diameter and range of the gingiva in the middle zone and densification zone, respectively. You can make changes by double-clicking the cell.

Forces - Reinforcement Areas Tab

Specifications

Load:  The name of the respective load or load combinations.
i: The left end of the element in the horizontal element is the lower end of the element in the vertical element.
j: The right end of the element in the horizontal element is the upper end of the element in the vertical element.
V2: It is  the power of the element.
M3: It is the bending moment of the element in the 3 (major) direction.

Reinforcements (calculated-required-existings)

In the left support of the beam, upper and lower; in the middle; clearance and mounting; in the right bracket; The total of existing/required and surplus rebar areas are given as top and bottom. Just below, the loading combination of the rebar calculation and the moment values ​​of that combination are also written.

Concrete fck

Concrete fctd

The characteristic calculation of concrete is its tensile strength.

Rebar fyk

Reinforcement is the yield strength of rebar.

Rebar fyd

It is the calculation strength of rebar steel.
