Use the Analysis tab in the steel connection or detail dialog box to define how Tekla Structures handles connections and details in the analysis.
|Use analysis restraints||Set to
Yes to use the analysis properties of the connection or detail in the analysis instead of the analysis properties of the parts in the connection.
You also need to set Member end release method by connection to Yes in the Analysis Model Properties dialog box when you create the analysis model.
For more information, see Analysis model properties.
|Member selection||Use to associate the analysis properties with each connection part (Primary, 1. secondary, 2. secondary, and so on).|
|Restraint combination||For more information, see Defining support conditions.|
|Longitudinal member offset||For more information, see Analysis part properties.|
|Analysis profile||Tekla Structures uses this profile in the analysis instead of the one in the physical model to take the stiffness of the connection or detail into account.|
|Analysis profile length||In the analysis, Tekla Structures overrides the profile of the part in the physical model for this length.|
