Category in Advanced options dialog box: Analysis & Design

In the Modify Profile Catalog dialog box, you can enter analysis values for each profile. When you run the structural analysis, the analysis applications that use the COM link calculate the analysis values and compare them to the values in the Tekla Structures profile catalog. If the analysis application finds the values in the profile catalog, it uses the catalog values.

To check the profile catalog for analysis values for all profiles, enter TRUE for the following advanced options before you run the analysis:



The default value is FALSE.

This advanced option is user specific and the setting is saved in options.bin under the user folder, for example, in C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\Trimble\Tekla Structures\<version>\UserSettings. Restart Tekla Structures to activate the new value.

If the profile catalog value differs significantly from the value the analysis application calculates, Tekla Structures writes a warning in the analysis log file. Use the advanced option XS_PROFILE_ANALYSIS_VALUE_DIFF_LIMIT to define the warning limit.
