Efficient Reinforcement Detailing - Part 2: Detailed Design Considerations
Burkhard Rützel, Product Manager Allplan Engineering, ALLPLAN
Reinforced concrete detailing – more commonly known as rebar design and detailing – is a time-consuming process due to the complexities involved. Without adequate time and attention, costly mistakes such as errors and conflicts between documents can easily creep into designs. Valuable time and money is wasted rectifying issues, negatively impacting delivery timescales and profit margins. Yet while projects are becoming ever more complex, budgets and schedules keep shrinking and skilled staff are harder to find and retain. In order to stay profitable and deliver an accurate and coordinated set of reinforcement documentation, companies need to find more efficient ways of working using the resources they have.
Technology holds the key. By adopting efficient design methods that enable staff to work effectively, high-quality reinforcement designs can be delivered on time and to budget. With the right reinforcement software, the detailed design process can be streamlined so waste activities are eliminated, errors can be drastically reduced, and documentation can be created quickly and easily. Getting this decision right can bring significant time and cost savings, protect profit margins, and add value to your projects.
Therefore, when you are considering how to choose the best rebar detailing software for your needs, there are several aspects to consider in order to find the best solution. In Part 2, we look at some of the detailed design issues that may impact your decision.
- How easy is it to create reinforcement models?
- Are special placement measures supported?
- Is the rebar detailing faster and more accurate?
- Can the required documentation be produced efficiently?
