In this webinar Sophie Wilkinson takes a look at foundation design in Tekla Structural Designer, focusing on pad bases and pile cap columns, their inputs, outputs, suitability and what to consider. We also look at foundation mats, both piled and ground bearing, how to correctly consider the ground stiffness and equivalent input; how to view the contours for your results and ways to adjust your inputs to get values suitable for designing the reinforcement. All of this, reflecting back up to our superstructure.
Lastly, a look at ground beams, and the ways you can control Tekla Structural Designer to get the exact arrangement to suit your project. Throughout all the above foundation topics, we review the reporting and drawing tools available to export out of Tekla Structural Designer.
