Settings sets and model settings

This eLearning tutorial looks at how to configure Tekla Structural Designer to work the way you wish to work. It looks at Settings sets and how these become Model settings when New project files are created. You will learn how to update both, copy information between the two, and create a company standard settings sets to share with colleagues.

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.

Precast modelling, analysis and design using Tekla Tedds

A new link between Tekla Structural Designer and Tekla Tedds allows Precast Concrete column and beam elements to be designed. This workflow is ideally suited for all engineers located in Norway, Sweden and Finland performing designs of Precast Concrete to suit the specifications of Eurocode BS EN 1992-1-1. Analysis forces and design results can be seamlessly transferred between Tekla Structural Designer and Tekla Tedds allowing users to meet code compliant design requirements whilst also producing final calculations which can be submitted to a checking authority.

User defined RSA curve

The RSA Spectrum curve in the Seismic Wizard can now be defined by a set of data points, in addition to the existing fully automated code generated option and manual entry of code spectral curve change points. This new feature is introduced in Tekla Structural Designer 2019i for the US Headcode. Further information on Tekla Structural Designer can be found here.
