Steel members, concrete members and walls
From the Design tab on the ribbon you can batch design all steel members, cast-in-place concrete members and walls. The necessary analysis is automatically performed as part of the batch design process. As an alternative to batch design, once analysis has been performed you might choose to selectively design parts of the model as required.
- To get to know about batch and selective member and wall design, see: Design steel members and cast-in-place concrete beams, columns and walls
- As part of the design process, drift/sway, seismic drift, and wind drift checks are automatically performed as required. To find out more about these checks, see: Check drift, sway, seismic drift, wind drift, and overall displacements
From the Design tab on the ribbon you can batch design all concrete slabs, slab patches and run all punching shear checks. From the same tab you can also check the response of floors to dynamic excitation. As an alternative to batch slab design, once analysis has been performed you might choose to selectively design or check selected slabs and slab patches as required.
- To find out about these slab, patch and punching shear design methods, see Design slabs and run punching shear checks
- To check the response of floors to dynamic excitation, see: Floor vibration checks
Timber and precast members
From the Design tab on the ribbon you can batch check all timber and precast member designs where a linked Tedds calculation has been created. To find out more, see:
To find out about how to create and check various steel connection types, see: Steel connections handbook
Foundation design is performed from the Foundations tab on the ribbon, see: Create and design foundations
