Engineering library update - October 2022

The latest Tekla Tedds engineering library update is available in Tekla Downloads.

American Design

Wood shear wall design (NDS)

Updated in accordance with the Special Design Provisions for Wind and Seismic 2021.

Retaining wall analysis & design (ACI318/TMS/MSJC)

Enhanced the calculation to include a Calc API so the calculation can be used in automation scenarios including the option to completely disable the user interface. The batch design has also been updated to include a Retaining wall stability analysis example.


Product bulletin October 2022 (PBT-2210-1)

Wind loading (ASCE7) - Fixed a potentially un-conservative error when determining the negative external parapet pressures of a monoslope roof pitch of less than 3 degrees when using the C&C method to ASCE7-16. For more detailed information please refer to Product bulletin October 2022 (PBT-2210-1).

Product bulletin September 2022 (PBT-2209-1)

Wood shear wall design (NDS) - Fixed a potentially un-conservative error affecting wood shear wall designs using a seismic deflection amplification factor other than 4. For more detailed information please refer to Product bulletin September 2022 (PBT-2209-1).
