Check loads and load groups

You can use several methods to check loads and load groups.

Inquire load properties

You can check the load group and the magnitude of a load and show them in a model view. Tekla Structures also shows more information about the load in the Inquire Object dialog box. If you have an analysis model selected in the Analysis & Design Models dialog box, Tekla Structures also highlights the parts that carry the load in that analysis model.

  1. In the Analysis & Design Models dialog box, select an analysis model.
  2. In a model view, select a load.
  3. Right-click and select Inquire.

Tekla Structures shows the load group and the magnitude in the model view and highlights the parts that carry the load in the selected analysis model. The Inquire Object dialog box also opens and shows more information about the load.

Find out to which load group a load belongs

You can check to which load groups selected loads belong.

  1. On the Analysis & design tab, click Load groups.
  2. Select a load in the model.

    To select multiple loads, hold down the Ctrl or Shift key.

  3. In the Load Groups dialog box, click Load groups by loads.

    Tekla Structures highlights the load group in the dialog box.

Find out which loads belong to a load group

You can check which loads belong to a selected load group.

  1. On the Analysis & design tab, click Load groups.
  2. In the Load Groups dialog box:
    1. Select a load group from the list.
    2. Click Loads by load groups.

      Tekla Structures highlights the loads of the load group in the model.

Check loads using reports

You can create reports of loads and load groups, and use them to check load and load group information.

When you select a row that contains an ID number in a load report, Tekla Structures highlights and selects the corresponding load in the model.

Tekla Structures includes the following standard report templates for loads and load groups:

  • L_Loaded_Part

  • L_Loadgroups

  • L_Loadgroups_and_loads

  • L_Loads

  • L_Part_Loads

Example

This example report uses the L_Loadgroups_and_loads template:
