Reinforcement Concrete Structure

Application 1. Reinforced Concrete Structure


This example of Reinforced Concrete is composed for users to acquire a general understanding of creating structural drawings by using the design results of midas Gen. Before using midas DrawingShop in an actual project, it is highly recommended that you exercise the examples with a complete understanding ofPrinciple of Drawingavailable in the Users Guide. In this example, the process of generating structural drawings of a Reinforced Concrete structure using midas DrawingShop is explained below.

By Members Import design results of midas Gen by members. It is possible to rearrange the placement of reinforcement considering constructability by using the required rebar area for each member calculated in Gen. By Sections Assign the most conservative results to all members which have the same section IDs. If you give section numbers considering member grouping in midas Gen, then check on By sections. In this case, the name of group is determined from the section name you defined in midas Gen. You can also rearrange the placement of reinforcement considering constructability.

Edit Reinforcement Information


You can edit rebars designed by midas Gen or auto-placed byAuto-Placement of Rebars. There are two ways to edit information of bar arrangement in DrawingShop. (1) Method 1: Editing each member by double clicking. (2) Method 2 : Editing bar arrangements in a Table. Method 1: Edit each member by double clicking on the member as shown below.

You dont need to edit the information of bar arrangement if you use the information of rebars designed by midas Gen.

1. To edit bar arrangement for individual members, double click each member. (You can modify the bar arrangement as required. A Warning Dialogue will appear if any rules of bar arrangement are not followed.)

Apply to Member when you want to apply the modified details only to 2. Click a specific member. If you want to use the same details for all members in the group then click 3. Click Apply to Group. after modifying all the information for bar arrangement.

Method 2: Editing bar arrangements in Table is as shown below. 1. Execute Model>Beam>Change Rebars on Table. (You can modify the bar arrangement as required. A Warning Dialogue will appear if any rules of bar arrangement are not followed.) 2. It is possible to select members individually by using Select button.

Otherwise, you can also select multiple members in the same column at one time by selecting members while holding CtrlKey. 1) If you click a member (Beam) on plan with holding CtrlKey, then all members on Continuous Beam are selected. 2) Vertical member(Column or Wall) of all floors are selected by clicking and holding CtrlKey on plan. 3. The procedure to apply the modified details to each member is the same as in Method 1.
