Key features for analysis and design

Watch as we explore key features for analysis and design in Tekla Structural Designer 2020, Service Pack 4. Analysis will cover dynamic analysis and the process needed to complete this successfully before moving onto wall distributed reactions and the improved output for mesh walls. Design topics will cover patterning of eccentricity moments from steel beams on steel columns, minimum design forces and the pile punching check between piles and the mat foundations.

Key features for modelling

Watch as we explore some of the key features and enhancements available for modelling in Tekla Structural Designer 2020, Service Pack 4. We’ll take a look at three main areas considered as modelling enhancements starting with how to model ancillary loading. This is a new feature that allows the user to quickly create loading for ancillary items such as, ladders (with and without cages), stairs, pipework and walkways etc. These loads can be set as line or area loads. Secondly, we’ll look at modelling inactive members.

Key features

Watch as we explore key features in Tekla Structural Designer 2020 and subsequent service packs. We’ll take a look at general improvements made to the Find functionality before moving on to some new features, such as Beam end partial fixity. Tekla Structural Designer now has the ability to model a connection stiffness between ‘Fully Fixed’ and ‘Pinned’ for Beams to Columns, Beams to Beams, Beams to Walls and Beams to Supports.

Property Sets

In this tutorial, we will take a detailed look at Property Sets, learn what they are, and how they can help us to work more efficiently with the Properties window. Using property sets, we can quickly and easily assign and change the properties of entities within the model, and easily ensure consistent data for entities of the same type, that are required to be identical.  We will learn how to save property sets, manage, recall, and apply property sets, to both individual and multiple entities in the model.

Welcome and Introduction

This eLearning tutorial welcomes you to the Tekla Structural Designer First steps course. It also introduces Tekla Structural Designer by demonstrating both a steel and a concrete model being created, loaded, designed and output being generated.  Please note that the demonstrations are intended to be quick, with little to no explanation so that you can grasp the main process and workflow without being distracted by too much detail at this stage. The subsequent lessons will fill in the blanks.

Easy modeling of Peikko Deltabeams

Tekla Structural Designer now supports a database of predefined Deltabeam sections for modeling and analysis, which makes modeling easy and fast.  The Engineer is able to add additional ones, no design is performed. Size is determined using “Peikko Designer”. Tekla Structural Designer generates a member forces report to send to “Peikko”. Deltabeams are shown on the drawings and reported in material listings. Further information on Tekla Structural Designer can be found here.

Automatic modeling of partial fixity

Tekla Structural Designer now has the ability to model a connection stiffness between “Fully Fixed” and “Pinned” for Beams to Columns, Beams to Beams, Beams to Walls and Beams to Supports. Partial fixity is achieved through a unique “Link” element within the solver model. Modeling connections with partial fixity is managed automatically which makes your work easier and faster. Further information on Tekla Structural Designer can be found here.

Data driven design with Grasshopper

We now have a link between Tekla Structural Designer and Grasshopper which allows you to explore different early-stage design alternatives quickly and easily. You can manipulate key parameters in Grasshopper which are linked to Tekla Structural Designer to give back results of different alternatives. This new process makes it possible to find the best design alternative for your client faster than before.  Further information on Tekla Structural Designer can be found here.

Predefined connection resistance database for Eurocode and AISC

Tekla Structural Designer now comes with a predefined connection resistance database, which includes a range of connection types for Eurocode and AISC. This saves you from having to set up your own. The capacity of connections can now be checked as part of the design and helps you identify potential issues forming connections early on in the design process. Further information on Tekla Structural Designer can be found here.
