Create a rebar shape that follows a curved beam

#1

Hello!

I am trying to create a rebar along a curved beam. I know how to create curves for curved faces and then create the rebar from those curves but the problem comes when I try to create a rebar perpendicular to the side faces.

Hello again,

I attach a screenshot that clarifies better what a I am looking for. The thing is that I know how to create a rebar tht follows one face, so I created the longitudinal rebar that goes on the wall face as you see on the picture. But I do not how to create a script to make that the U- rebar (highlighted on the image) follows the curvature of the beam.
