The modifications to performance-based design methods, developed through examples using the pattern framework and presented in this thesis, incorporate performance considerations for all phases of the structure life cycle. These recommendations include: considering additional analysis patterns during design, using decision patterns that account for performance in all life cycle phases, and implementing set-based design methods for evaluating multiple design options.However, recent versions of Tekla Structures now provide a high enough level of detail for modeling individual rebars. Currently, the placing drawings are created by de- tailers, trained technicians who specialize in making placing drawingsanbsp;...
