Steel Beams - New Section Database of Peikko DELTABEAM beams

DELTABEAM® beams manufactured by Peikko in Finland are now added to the Steel section databases for the Nordic countries of Finland, Sweden and Norway and the general Europe database. This proprietary beam type is typically used in long span. slim floor systems in which they are cast into and act compositely with the floor slab. With this addition, floors of this type can now be modelled and analysed in Tekla Structural Designer.


  • A new dedicated DELTABEAM® option is added to the droplist of Steel Beam types on the Model Ribbon. When working from the Properties Window, set the Fabrication to DELTABEAM® to apply the new sections as shown below.

  • Two series of DELTABEAM® sections are then available for selection; D-type internal and DR-type edge. Currently only the section properties required for analysis are defined in the database hence there is no design for them within Tekla Structural Designer. A report of design forces can be produced for external design.
