Modify the properties of an analysis part

You can view, define, and modify the properties of analysis parts using the analysis part properties dialog box.

To access the properties of an analysis part, do one of the following:

To

Do this

Define or modify the current analysis properties of a part type independently from analysis models

  1. On the Analysis & design tab, click Part analysis properties, and then click a relevant part type.

  2. In the analysis properties dialog box:

    1. Modify the properties.

    2. Click Apply or OK to save the changes as the current analysis properties of the part type.

Tekla Structures will use these current analysis properties for new parts of this type that you create in the model.

Define or modify the default analysis properties of a part independently from analysis models

  1. Ensure that you do not have an analysis model selected in the Analysis & Design Models dialog box.

  2. In the physical model, select a part.

  3. Right-click and select Analysis Properties.

  4. In the part’s analysis properties dialog box:

    1. Modify the properties.

    2. Click Modify to save the changes as the default analysis properties of the part in the AnalysisPartDefaults.db6 file.

Tekla Structures will use these default analysis properties instead of current analysis properties for this part when you add it to an analysis model.

View the analysis properties of a part independently from analysis models

  1. Ensure that you do not have an analysis model selected in the Analysis & Design Models dialog box.

  2. In the physical model, select a part.

  3. Right-click and select Analysis Properties.

    If you have already previously modified the analysis properties of this part, Tekla Structures displays these default analysis properties in the part’s analysis properties dialog box (for example, Beam Analysis Properties).

    If you have not modified the analysis properties of this part, Tekla Structures displays the current analysis properties in the part’s analysis properties dialog box (for example, Beam Analysis Properties - Current properties).

  4. In the part’s analysis properties dialog box:

    1. View the properties.

    2. Click Cancel to close the dialog box.

View or modify the properties of an analysis part in an analysis model

  1. On the Analysis & design tab, click A&D models.
  2. In the Analysis & Design Models dialog box, select an analysis model (for example, AnalysisModel3).

  3. In the physical model, select a part.

  4. Right-click and select Analysis Properties.

  5. In the part’s analysis properties dialog box (for example, Beam Analysis Properties - AnalysisModel3), do one of the following:

    • View the properties, and then click Cancel to close the dialog box.

    • Modify the properties, and then click Modify to save the changes.
