Tekla Structural Designer || RC Beam Rise and Drop ||Slab Rise and Drop

 Tekla Structural Designer (TSD) is a simple, integrated design & analysis software that enables engineers to deliver safe, effective and rationalized design more quickly, regardless of structural material. Reinforcement drawings for the entire building or tonnes of steel for estimating, all available in the touch of a button.

A Beam is a Key structural member of any building, and for various purposes a particular amount of rise or drops are given to beams, like for architectural purposes, for providing sunken slab etc.

Lets find out the Step wise, procedure of Providing Rise and Drop to Beams in Tekla Structural Designer.

Step 1: Go to the Level of the Beam for which you want to provide the rise and drop. Select the Beam.

Step 2: Select the Center Node and drag it to the Portion to which you want to cut or Split. The beam ca be now selected in 2 parts.

Note: For cutting or splitting we can use construction lines if required.

Step 3: Select the Beam, in the properties menu change to "Cast in Place Concrete Spans", after that you will be able to select one part of the beam. Select one part of the beam.

Step 4: Under the option of Alignment in the properties box, provide the desired vertical offset, if you provide a vertical value then it will move upwards, and if you provide a negative value then it will move downwards, hence the rise or drop will be successfully applied.

Step 5: After applying the rise or drop you may use the same method for beam part selection as mentioned earlier and change the depth of the beam part so that the soffit or the bottom of the beam remains flush or along the same level.

So, these are the steps for providing Rise or Drop in Reinforced Concrete Beams in Tekla Structural Designer (TSD).
