Parameter definition

VariableDescription
coid Component ID
pid Part ID
N${}_x$ Number of rebar grids in local x-direction
N${}_y$ Number of rebar grids in local y-direction
N${}_z$ Number of rebar grids in local z-direction
csysid Local coordinate system ID
default: global coordinates are used
$x_1$, $y_1$, $z_1$ Rebar cage corner coordinate 1
$x_2$, $y_2$, $z_2$ Rebar cage corner coordinate 2
$h$ Rebar element length (target)

Description

This command defines a rectangular grid with rebars. Mechanical properties are defined with MAT_REBAR and the initial rebar diameter is defined in PART. The rebar element length will not necessarily be exactly equal to the specified value $h$. $h$ is to be seen as a target value. The actual element length is adapted to the rebar grid size.
