Steel design to EC3 and EC4
Tekla Structural Designer designs steel members and composite members to a range of international codes. This reference guide specifically describes the design methods applied in the software when the BS EN 1993-1-1:2005 (Ref.1) and BS EN 1994-1-1:2004 (Ref. 4) codes are selected.
Within the remainder of this handbook BS EN 1993-1-1:2005 and BS EN 1994-1-1:2004 are referred to as EC3 and EC4 respectively.
Unless explicitly noted otherwise, all clauses, figures and tables referred to are from EC3; apart from the Composite Beam section, within which references are to EC4 unless stated.
