Use adaptivity to modify a reinforcement

Reinforcement follows the shape of the part also when the reinforcement handles are located on the face or edge of the part.

The following types of adaptivity are available:

  • Fixed adaptivity: handles retain their absolute distances to the nearest part faces.
  • Relative adaptivity: handles retain their relative distances to the nearest part faces in relation to the part’s overall size.
  1. Select a reinforcement.
  2. Right-click and select Adaptivity and then one of the adaptivity options from the pop-up menu.

    When a part is modified, Tekla Structures handles the reinforcement according to the adaptivity selection.


    To modify the general adaptivity settings, click File menu > Settings > Options > General.

    You can also modify the adaptivity settings for each part separately. These modifications override the general settings in the Options dialog box.
