Set the load modeling code

Load modeling code settings determine the building code, safety factors, and load group types that Tekla Structures uses in the load combination process.


You should not need to change these settings during the project. If you change the settings, you will also need to change the load group types and check the load combinations.

To set the load modeling code and to use the standard building code specific load combination factors:

  1. On the File menu, click Settings > Options, and go to the Load modeling settings.
  2. On the Current code tab, select a code from the Load modeling code list.
  3. Check the load combination factors on the appropriate tab.
  4. If you use the Eurocode, enter the reliability class factor and select the formula to be used on the Eurocode tab.
  5. Click OK.
