Windpost design (EN1993)

July 15, 2021

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.
