About analysis applications
An analysis application is an external analysis and design software that you use with Tekla Structures to analyze and design structures.
The analysis application calculates the forces, moments, and stresses on the structures. It also calculates the displacements, deflections, rotations, and warping of objects under various loading conditions.
Tekla Structures links with a number of analysis applications and also supports export with them in several formats. The analysis application in which you run structural analysis uses data from the Tekla Structures analysis models to generate analysis results.
To analyze Tekla Structures analysis models with an analysis application, you need to install a direct link between Tekla Structures and the analysis application.
