Understanding each of the design options

 
Command Description
Design using Tekla Tedds > Model Launches Tekla Tedds and performs interactive designs on all timber and precast members in the model taking into account group design settings.
Design using Tekla Tedds > Member
  • If group design is active - Launches Tekla Tedds and performs an interactive design on the selected member. Member design uses the critical forces in the selected member only. All other members remaining in the associated design group will be check designed for the assigned Tekla Tedds properties and their individual forces. (It should be noted that some members may fail if the critical member was not initially selected for the design process.) Section changes made within Tekla Tedds are imported back into the Tekla Structural Designer model.
  • If group design is inactive - Launches Tekla Tedds and performs an interactive design on the selected member. Section changes made within Tekla Tedds are imported back into the Tekla Structural Designer model.
Design using Tekla Tedds > Group

Launches Tekla Tedds and performs an interactive design on the selected group. Group design uses the group critical forces. This is followed by a check design on each group member for the assigned Tekla Tedds properties and their individual forces. Section changes made within Tekla Tedds are imported back into the Tekla Structural Designer model.

Design using Tekla Tedds > Selection
  • If group design is active - Launches Tekla Tedds and performs an interactive design for each group in the selection, using group critical forces. All members in the associated design group (including those that are not in the selection will be check designed for the assigned Tekla Tedds properties and their individual forces. Section changes made within Tekla Tedds are imported back into the Tekla Structural Designer model both for selected members and members in groups associated with the selection.
  • If group design is inactive - Launches Tekla Tedds and performs an interactive design for each member in the selection using the member's individual critical forces. Section changes made within Tekla Tedds are imported back into the Tekla Structural Designer model.
Design using Tekla Tedds > <Substructure name> This extra option becomes available when working in a sub structure.
  • If group design is active - Launches Tekla Tedds and performs an interactive design for each group in the sub structure, using group critical forces. All members in the associated design group (including those that are not in the sub structure will be check designed for the assigned Tekla Tedds properties and their individual forces. Section changes made within Tekla Tedds are imported back into the Tekla Structural Designer model both for sub structure members and members in the same groups but not in the sub structure.
  • If group design is inactive - Launches Tekla Tedds and performs an interactive design for each member in the sub structure using the member's individual critical forces. Section changes made within Tekla Tedds are imported back into the Tekla Structural Designer model.

To design all timber and precast members

  1. In the Project Workspace, click Group tab.
  2. In the tree, right-click Groups.
  3. In the context menu, select Design using Tekla Tedds > Model

    Tekla Structural Designer opens the Tekla Tedds design calculation to allow the first design section (s1) in the first member to be designed for forces at that section.

    Note: To find out more about this and the other Design using Tekla Tedds commands, see Understanding each of the design options above.
  4. Adjust the parameters as required to achieve a satisfactory design, then select the next design section (s2) from the Design section droplist.
    • Continue in the same way, adjusting parameters as necessary for each design section until a satisfactory design is achieved for the whole span/stack, then click Finish.
    • If it is a multi-span/stack member, the Tekla Tedds design calculation will re-open to allow the next span/stack to be designed.
    • Continue the design in the same way, clicking Finish after each span/stack, until the entire member has been designed.
  5. If the member is in a group and group design is active, all other members in the design group are then check designed for the assigned Tekla Tedds properties and their individual forces.
  6. Tekla Structural Designer opens the Tekla Tedds design calculation to allow the next member to be designed.
    • Continue in the same way until all the members have been designed.

At the end of the process the status of the member(s) is shown in a Review View.

Note: Design using Tekla Tedds > Model uses the existing analysis results, (even if the analysis status is 'Out of Date').

To design a timber or precast member

  1. Hover the mouse pointer over the member to highlight it in a 2D or 3D view.
  2. If a different entity is highlighted, press the <down arrow> cursor key until the correct reference is shown in the Select Entity tooltip.
  3. Right click and select Design using Tekla Tedds > Member

    Tekla Structural Designer opens the Tekla Tedds design calculation to allow the first design section (s1) in the member to be designed for forces at that section.

To design a timber or precast member group

In grouped design, one member of the group is designed for the worst case forces from all members in the group. The design is then copied to the other group members and each member is checked. The status for each member is then displayed in a Review View.
  1. Hover the mouse pointer over a group member to highlight it in a 2D or 3D view.
  2. If a different entity is highlighted, press the <down arrow> cursor key until the correct reference is shown in the Select Entity tooltip.
  3. From the right-click menu, choose Design using Tekla Tedds > Group
    Tekla Structural Designer collects the worst case forces from all members in the group and then opens the Tekla Tedds precast design calculation to allow the first design section (s1) in the selected member to be designed for forces at that section.
    Note: To find out more about this and the other Design using Tekla Tedds commands, see Understanding each of the design options above.
  4. Adjust the parameters as required to achieve a satisfactory design, then select the next design section (s2) from the Design section droplist.
    • Continue in the same way, adjusting parameters as necessary for each design section until a satisfactory design is achieved for the whole span/stack, then click Finish.
  5. If it is a multi-span/stack member, the Tekla Tedds design calculation will re-open to allow the next span/stack to be designed.
    • Continue the design in the same way, clicking Finish after each span/stack, until the entire member has been designed.
  6. After the selected group member has been designed, a check is then automatically performed on the remaining group members, resulting in an individual status and utilisation for each member in the group.
    The status of the group members is displayed in a Review View.
