New Line and Area Ancillaries Loading

New Line and Area Ancillaries Loading This powerful new feature enables the quick and efficient application of loading from ancillary items - such as ladders, stairs and pipework etc - that are not part of the main structural frame. These are termed “Ancillary Loading” and can be applied as either line or area objects. While the feature has been developed especially with Industrial Structures in mind, it has a wider potential applicability to many kinds of structures. For more information see the new Help Topic Ancillaries A comprehensive list of Ancillary types is pre-defined with default

Comprehensively Enhanced Timber/ Wood design using Tekla Tedds

Comprehensively Enhanced Timber/ Wood design using Tekla Tedds In an exciting development, integration with Tekla Tedds for Timber member design has been thoroughly enhanced, enabling seamless and efficient Timber design to both the US Head Code and Eurocode. The new workflow fully supports multiple analysis and design loops and Design Groups (enabled by the default). The design process for timber members now works in the same manner and matches the power and capability of that for Precast concrete members using Tekla Tedds introduced in the 2020 first release (for more on this see the

New Lateral Force Resisting System Wall Type - Shear Only Walls

New Lateral Force Resisting System Wall Type - Shear Only Walls A new type of Wall is available in this release for modeling for example a lateral system of infill masonry panels. Typically engineers wish to model these with only in-plane lateral stiffness of a defined value, and zero vertical and out of plane stiffness. The new wall object automatically models this idealized behavior with a sophisticated underlying analysis model involving axial spring and link elements (new and enhanced in this release). The new wall type can be used in models with both rigid and semi-rigid diaphragms.

Concrete Design - Pile Punching Checks on Mat Foundations - Eurocode and US Head Codes

Concrete Design - Pile Punching Checks on Mat Foundations - Eurocode and US Head Codes The scope of mat foundation slab design is now expanded to including pile punching checks for the Eurocode and US Head Codes. The process of creating, designing and reporting punching checks of piles is essentially the same as that for columns: The punching check object can be created in both 2D and 3D views - both by selecting individual piles and by drawing a selecting line/ window to create checks for multiple piles in a single operation. Just as for columns, the check location and tension

Steel Design - New Patterning of Eccentricity Moments

Steel Design - New Patterning of Eccentricity Moments Since the very first release of Tekla Structural Designer, additional “eccentricity moments” - resulting from the eccentricity of supported beam reactions - have automatically been calculated and considered in steel column design. For more on this feature see the Help topic Steel column connection eccentricity moments. In this release the feature is enhanced with the option to consider patterning of eccentricity moments, resulting from different permutations of loading of the supported beams producing unbalanced load and hence

Minimum Design Forces & Rounding Increment

Minimum Design Forces & Rounding Increment To aid efficiency and rationalization of design, comprehensive new settings are added giving the engineer control and flexibility of Design forces; both those considered by checks within the program and reported and exported. As shown in the picture below, the new settings are added to the “Design Forces” page of Design Settings. Using these the engineer can now control minimum values considered and set optional rounding increments for both Brace and Beam End Forces and Foundation reactions. This feature applies to all Head Codes and note

New Inactive Members

New Inactive Members This new feature enables the definition of members which are required for load decomposition but that you do not wish to be considered otherwise by the analysis, nor to be designed, and is a companion feature to the new Line and Area Ancillaries feature described above. However it potentially has a considerably wider use and appeal for many types of structure, for example in defining staircases as shown in the second image below. For more information see the new Help topic Inactive members. As shown in the picture above, the option to set members inactive - by

Dynamic Analysis - Wind Tunnel Data Report Generation

Dynamic Analysis - Wind Tunnel Data Report Generation Specialist wind tunnel consultants are sometimes employed to determine structure specific wind loading on a project, typically this applies to tall or unusual structures. Following customer requests a new feature set has been added to enable easy and rapid generation of Dynamic Analysis data required by the wind tunnel testing consultant. Note that the Modal analysis capability and output principally required for such data has always existed in Structural Designer - this feature adds a new simple workflow and automated report tables to

Steel Design - Compound Section Design - Indian Head Code

Steel Design - Compound Section Design - Indian Head Code Following customer requests, a number of steel compound sections can now be designed to the Indian design code. Such sections can be user-defined using the Compound section tool in Home > Materials > Sections > Manage Sections. The section shapes supported by the new design are: Rolled Channels back to back Rolled Channels toe to toe Doubled rolled I sections Doubled rolled I sections with plates The scope of design of these compound sections includes both beams and columns and auto-design.

Distributed Wall Reactions

Distributed Wall Reactions In line with customer requests, distributed line (force/ unit length) reactions are now automatically calculated and reported for all wall types; Meshed, Mid-pier, Bearing and General. A new filter button for these is added to the Reactions group of the Results Ribbon as shown below. The distributed reaction is generally more directly useful in additional calculations and checks for foundation design. Key points of this feature are: Distributed wall reactions are: The continuous line reaction along the length of the analytical chord at the wall bottom
