With the pour management functionality of Tekla Structures, you can view the geometry of cast-in-place concrete structures, show them as parts or as pour objects, plan pours and pour breaks, and report pour information, such as concrete volumes and formwork areas. You can define pours, pour units, pour objects, and pour breaks for concrete parts whose cast unit type is Cast in place.
In Tekla Structures, a pour object is a building object that consists of one or more cast-in-place concrete parts, or parts of them. The cast-in-place concrete parts are merged into one pour object if they have the same material grade and they touch each other. They also need to be in the same pour phase to be merged. Pour objects are visible in pour views.
A pour unit is an entity for cast-in-place concrete and it consists of a pour object and all related reinforcement, embeds, and other objects that need to be in place before concrete can be poured on the building site.
A pour is a group of pour objects that is poured at one go.
With a pour break you can split a pour object into smaller pour objects.
