Windpost design (EN1993)
This video demonstrates the Tekla Tedds Windpost design calculation to the Eurocode.
The calculation checks the design of a vertical steel beam acting as a windpost providing lateral support to a masonry wall subjected to a uniformly distributed wind load.
The windpost beam can be designed as a standard carbon steel section or as a stainless steel section. The capacity of the wall ties is checked to distribute the wind loads from the loaded leaf to the other leaf.
