The program includes a library of frequently used reinforcement shapes, including 3D shapes. Other shapes can be defined using a curve or by formwork. A variable length item is available for form-complex constructions, and you can use an item in linear meters to reinforce wreaths or like wall secondary reinforcement.
Reinforcement shapes can be defined by:
When defining new bar items, CADKON checks whether an item of the same shape and steel already exists.
For constructions of difficult shapes an item of variable length is available. Increments of bar section lengths may be constant or variable (in rotation, with a different spacing).
The item of variable length can be easily created by trimming a normal item with specified points or previously defined polyline. For trimming, you can use either straight or arc segments.
Item n. 10 is classic, item n. 20 is in running metres.
For wreath reinforcement or for a dividing wall or a plate we use an item in running metres that is reported by a total length with a possible increase of this length using a specified coefficient.
Support can be laid into a formwork either as individual bars or as bar rows. The rows can be straight, arc or based on any planar polyline. The distance of bars in the row can uniform or variable.
Circular regions can be reinforced by a tangential or radial reinforcement with different options of the construction centre reinforcement.To insert such a reinforcement, you can also use some specific functions:
