Create a pile type catalogue

In order to use pile foundations in your model, you must create a catalogue of pile types. To do so, see the following instructions.

  1. On the Foundations tab, click Catalogue.

    The Pile Catalogue opens.

  2. To create a new pile type, click Add...

    The Edit Pile Type dialog box opens.

  3. On the different pages of the Edit Pile Type dialog box, define the properties of the new pile type.
  4. Click OK.

    Tekla Structural Designer creates the pile type.

  5. Repeat steps 2–4 as necessary.
    Tip: In the Pile Catalogue, you can also modify or delete the existing pile types:
    • To modify a pile type, select the pile type and click Edit...
    • To delete a pile type, select the pile and click Delete.
    Note: Material information defined in the Pile Catalogue has no design significance. It is assigned solely to allow embodied carbon to be calculated and reported for the 'Pile' construction type.
