Slab & Prestressed Slab

To create a Slab or Prestressed Slab RC template, you need:

1. Select the type of the element "Slab or Prestressed Slab";

2. Click "New" to create a new RC template;

3. Specify "Name" and "Description" of your template.

Next, apply specific settings you want for RC template.

General

In the General tab, you can select the type of your reinforcement layout and placement. According to your selection, horizontal rebar selection will unlock or adjust accordingly.

  • Type

- Double mesh, double rebar;

  • Placing

In the Placing section, you can select how horizontal mesh will be placed and vertical section preview will adjust accordingly.

Horizontal mesh:

- Facing Bottom (Both);

- Facing Inwards;

- Facing Outwards;

- Facing Top (Both).

Horizontal rebar:

- Facing Inwards;

- Facing Outwards.

M1 - Top face to center of mesh.Top face to top of rebar

M2 - Top face to top of rebar.

M3 - Bottom face to center of mesh.Bottom face to Bottom of rebar

M4 - Bottom face to Bottom of rebar.

  • Round 

Round straight bar length: Put a value in mm. 

If the value is 10 and the length of a straight bar is 4572 mm, IMPACT will round the length to 4570 mm.

  • Cover 

If there is a Reinforcement boundary in the endcap, the Reinforcement boundary and the Cover values from RC template are taken into consideration, when applying Reinforcement in the element. 

If there is no Reinforcement boundary, defined in the endcap, then the geometry boundary is used and Cover values from RC template are taken into consideration when applying Reinforcement in the element. 

- Cut: The cut value will shorten the rebar on both sides. 

- Plac. : Placing - The distance from the nearest parallel edge of the slab to the rebar.

Next, apply specific settings you want for the Reinforcement template.

General

In the General tab, you can select the type of your reinforcement layout and placement. According to your selection, horizontal rebar selection will unlock or adjust accordingly.

  • Type

- Double mesh, double rebar;

- Single mesh, double rebar; 

- Single mesh, single rebar. 

  • Placing

In the Placing section, you can select how horizontal mesh will be placed and vertical section preview will adjust accordingly.

Horizontal mesh:

- Facing Back (Both);

- Facing Front (Both); 

- Facing Inwards;

- Facing Outwards. 

Horizontal rebar:

- Facing Inwards;

- Facing Outwards.

M1 - Front face to center of mesh. Front face to Front/Top of rebar.

M2 - Front face to Front/Top of rebar.

M3 - Back face to center of mesh. Back face to Back/Bottom of rebar.

M4 - Back face to Back/Bottom of rebar.

  • Round 

Round straight bar length: Put a value in mm. 

If the value is 10 and the length of a straight bar is 4572 mm, IMPACT will round the length to 4570 mm.

  • Cover 

If there is a Reinforcement boundary in the endcap, the Reinforcement boundary and the Cover values from RC template are taken into consideration, when applying Reinforcement in the element. 

If there is no Reinforcement boundary, defined in the endcap, then the geometry boundary is used and Cover values from RC template are taken into consideration when applying Reinforcement in the element. 

- Cut: The cut value will shorten the rebar on both sides. 

- Plac. : Placing - The distance from the nearest parallel edge of the wall to the rebar.
