Tekla Tedds 2015 with New Capabilities

Tekla Tedds 2015 with New Capabilities, Further Streamlining Calculations for Structural Engineers

New Calculations and Code Updates Bring Added Efficiency

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Oct. 5, 2015Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) today announced today new features for its Tekla® Tedds 2015, an innovative software that enables structural engineers to automate repetitive civil and structural calculations. Tekla Tedds 2015 is an integral part of the Trimble Buildings Structures portfolio of software for the architectural, engineering and construction industry. This release includes several new features that further automate and reduce calculation time so that engineers can achieve efficient designs more quickly.

New features allow engineers to better analyze and design concrete beams and masonry bearings to Eurocode—the harmonized technical rules for structural design in the European Union, as well as steel beams to AISC standards, set by the American Institute of Steel Construction.

“Tekla Tedds has a long heritage of enabling structural engineers to save time through automation,” said Barry Chapman, director of engineering for Trimble’s Structures Division. “Although we released Tedds 2015 earlier this year, we felt it was important today to share these new features to reinforce that we are quickly developing even more capabilities that will further streamline calculations, minimize errors and increase productivity.”

Design and Analyze More Efficiently

  • Intuitively Design Concrete Beams to Eurocode and Steel Beams to AISC – Users can model and analyze a complete 2D frame and design each individual beam, all within the single integrated calculations, saving time and eliminating the need to design each beam in a separate calculation.
  • Quickly Design Masonry Bearings to Eurocode – Users can now check the resistance of the masonry beneath multiple concentrated loads to determine whether or not additional strengthening is required.

Using Trimble’s Tekla Tedds, structural engineers can access a fully automated library of civil and structural calculations to Australian, Canadian and US codes, British Standards and Eurocode. Because the calculations are fully transparent, they strengthen confidence in design results and help engineers create professional and consistent project documents, including notes and sketches. For additional flexibility, engineers can write, store and distribute custom calculations.
