Structural Tab

Specifications

Structural material

Select the structural material to be used in the element from the list. Structural material can be defined as a reinforced concrete element under Materials in Building Tree.

Finite element width

Enter the maximum finite element width to be taken as basis in the slab calculation. The program performs slab analysis by dividing tiles into trapezoidal finite elements. Finite element width is automatically adjusted according to the slab shape, provided that it does not exceed the value entered in this row.

Moment calculation angle

When this value is left zero, the slab axes are taken as 0 degrees in the 1st direction and 90 degrees in the 2nd direction during the slab analysis. In a rotated structure, the moment calculation angle is also refreshed automatically. The value can be changed when slab analysis is desired to be performed according to the axis at different angles.

1. The structure is defined parallel to the x axis. When the torque angle is 0 degrees, the following moment diagram is obtained.

2. If the structure is rotated 45 degrees and the moment angle is given 45 degrees, the same results as 1 are obtained.

3. If the moment angle is left zero in a structure that is entered as 45 degrees, results different from 1 and 2 will be obtained.

Dynamic live load multiplier

While calculating the total weight of the building, the live load value coming from the relevant slab is taken into account by multiplying it with the value entered in the box. In the earthquake load calculation, element design results change as the total mass of the building will change. However, this multiplier does not change the live load value on the slab.

Create concrete calculation lines

When the slab is placed, this option can be selected to automatically create the reinforced concrete calculation axis for the slab. In this case, two horizontal and vertical reinforced concrete calculation axis are created in the middle of the floor in each defined floor. If the option is not selected, the user must define the reinforced concrete calculation axis using the "reinforced concrete calculation axis" command.

Draw concrete calculation lines

If it is wanted to show the reinforced concrete calculation axis showing the direction in which the slab reinforced concrete will be made, it is marked. This representation is for informational purposes only and is not drawn in the formwork and / or reinforcement plans.

Rigid diaphragm index

Rigid diaphragms are automatically detected by the program according to the presence / absence of slab on any slab. These parameters change the rigid diaphragm conditions on a slab basis. The changes made affect the analysis.

Rigid diaphragm index

It is the number that groups rigid diaphragms. For example, in projects with a single rigid diaphragm, this value is 1 for all floors. In systems with different rigid diaphragms, diaphragms will be indexed as 2, 3 etc.

Automatically generate rigid diaphragm

When the option is selected, the slab will be included in the rigid diaphragm index determined according to the rigid diaphragm index. All floors with the same index number will be in the same rigid diaphragm.

Creating a rigid diaphragm

When the option is checked, the flooring will not be found on the rigid diaphragm.

Create a rigid diaphragm regardless of the connection

Regardless of the position of the flooring when the option is selected, floors according to the number written in the rigid diaphragm index will be accepted within the same rigid diaphragm system. For example, this option may be needed in systems with two towers with space in between.

Deflection Tab

TS500 Deflection limits: Give deflection control upper limits. Values ​​taken from TS500. If the "Always check deflection condition" option is selected, the instantaneous and temporal deflection control is performed on the slabs even if the "deflection condition is a height condition that does not require deflection control" is checked.

Mesh Wire Tab

 Specifications

Use mesh wire

Check the option to design ready reinforcement on the object.

Auto selected mesh wire

Check this option if you want to design the mesh wire selection as the choice made by the program as a result of the analysis. The program will use the most suitable mesh wire according to the calculation.

Use selected mesh wire

Regardless of the analysis result, if you want the program to use the reinforcement you have provided as mesh wire, check this option. Next, select mesh wire from the list to use under.

Under

For user-defined mesh wire, select the reinforcement to be used under the section.

Building Components

Add Building Components: Assigns the projected building materials to the object for detailed building components metrics.

  • Click on the building components button.

  • The Component Selection dialog will open.

  • In this dialog, click on the folder related to the material from the list on the left. Click on the material you want to use.

  • Set the parameters on the right.

  • Click the OK button. The "Component Selection" dialog will be closed. A summary line of the material will appear in the Building Components tab. More than one material assignment to an object can be done this way.

In the usage section

No modification: The amount of material to be assigned for the object in question is marked when it is desired to be used in the size that was previously specified in the material definition.

Percentage: This line is marked when it is desired to be used with the percentage of the amount previously determined in the material definition, as much as the value entered in the "Value 1" line in the same dialog. For example, if the material quantity is 70, if the line “Value 1” says 40, it means the material amount will be used up to 40 * 70%.

Override: This line is marked so that the quantity entered in the “Value 1” line in the same dialog will be used instead of the quantity previously determined in the material definition.

Multiplier: This line is marked in order to use the value found at the end of the multiplication of the value entered in the "Value 1" line in the same dialog with the amount previously determined in the material definition.

Fraction: This line is marked so that the amount determined in the material definition before will be used as the fraction value created by the values ​​entered in the "Value 1" and "Value 2" lines in the same dialog. "Value 1" is the denominator "Value 2" is the denominator.

Proportional to: It is determined to what scale-area, circumference, length etc.-, region-side area, top, edge etc.- the material will be proportioned to. The content of the proportional list box is automatically determined according to the object and the size of the material. For example, a different list will be created if an operation is made for the column, a different list will be created for the library, a different list for the volume, and a different list for the field.

The lines that appear in the Proportion list according to the slab object and material size are as follows:
