Components of the 2D Analysis dialog box

The 2D analysis tool allows you to create and define several different properties for your components. In the paragraphs below, see the main components of the 2D analysis dialog box.

  1. Context-sensitive help box

    guides you in creating your model.

  2. Preview window

    displays a preview of the model that you are defining.

  3. 2D analysis tabs

    allow you to define the different components of your model.

    1. Nodes tab

      allows you to define an unlimited number of nodes.

    2. Materials tab

      allows you to select pre-defined materials used in your model or define the properties of a custom material manually.

    3. Sections tab

      allows you to select pre-defined sections used in your model or define custom section properties manually.

    4. Elements tab

      allows you to create analysis elements by connecting two nodes and assigning the material and section for the elements.

    5. Design Members tab

      allows you to join elements to form design members. Using design members enables applying loads to design members, and outputting results so that they suit your design purposes.

    6. Loading tab

      allows you to create load cases, which enable entering loads.

    7. Load Combinations tab

      allows you to define load combinations with an appropriate load factor for each load case.

    8. Results tab

      allows you to view the results of your analysis and define how you want the results to be displayed.

    9. Output tab

      allows you to determine which details of the analysis are included when you insert the analysis in your calculation document.

  4. Property spreadsheet

    allows you to define the properties of the components that you are creating.

  5. Quick-access buttons

    allow you to access the notes related to the 2D analysis tool and the variables of your model, and send feedback or a support request to the Tedds help desk.
