Display graphical analysis results: member

Analysis results for individual members and walls can be displayed in a Load Analysis View.

Open a Load Analysis View

  1. Right-click the member whose loading and analysis results you want to view.
  2. In the context menu, select Open Load Analysis View.

    Tekla Structural Designer opens the load analysis view and a Loading Analysis tab is added to the ribbon.

  3. In the Loading list, select the loadcase, combination or envelope whose results you want to view.
  4. On the ribbon, select the analysis type using the list in the Result Type group.
  5. If you are viewing the results for a load combination or envelope, in the Result Type group on the ribbon, select whether you want to view the results based on strength or service factors.
  6. In the Direction group, select the axis type (Axial, Major, or Minor).

    Tekla Structural Designer displays the results according to the selected options.

    You can then further control the results in the Properties window as follows:
    • If the member is continuous:
      • If viewing results for a column, set the stack property to display either results for the whole column, or an individual stack.
      • If viewing results for a beam, set the span property to display either results for the whole beam, or an individual span.
    • If the loadcase, combination or envelope has live/imposed load reductions applied:
      • If viewing Axial results for a column, click Show axial force reduced to display the results with live/imposed load reductions applied.If viewing Major or Minor results for a beam, click Show reduced to display the results with live/imposed load reductions applied.

RSA Seismic Results in a Load Analysis View

Loading Analysis Views for 1st or 2nd Order RSA Seismic result types use the same rules as those applied to multi-member Results Views for the same result types, i.e. as follows:

RSA Seismic Loadcases

  • Combined (CQC) or Combined (SRSS) - depending on your choice in Analysis Options
    • Absolute values are determined at various points along each member and then plotted on both the positive and negative side of the diagram, (so that the diagrams are always symmetrical about the base line).
  • All relevant modes - a standard enveloped diagram is displayed
  • RSA Torsion Loadcases - displayed as per 1st order linear analysis
  • Static Loadcases included in the RSA Seismic Combination - displayed as per 1st order linear analysis
  • Effective Seismic Weight Combination - not available

RSA Seismic Combinations

A droplist is provided to allow you to view:
  • Design Profile - derived from the Static+Seismic result, the Design Profile is always plotted on the same side of the base line as the Static Only result
  • Static Only - displayed as per 1st order linear analysis
  • Seismic Only - absolute values are determined at various points along each member and then plotted on both the positive and negative side of the diagram
  • Static+Seismic - an envelope is drawn showing the seismic results above and below the static result.
    • Base line is through the static values
    • Top line is static value + seismic value
    • Bottom line is static value - seismic value
