Base plates can now be modeled and checked within Tekla Structural Designer for EC3 and US (simplified) designs, thus streamlining your workflow. It is no longer necessary to export to Tekla Connection Designer. Detailed and transparent calculations, GA drawings include base plates, bolts and dimensions.
The carbon impact of construction is coming under ever greater scrutiny. Engineers can now assess their des...

Most of your project types likely share similar starting points and for a good reason: these base points ensure company standards are followed. Adhering to the proper guidelines throughout a project r
With over 3000 tonnes of structural steelwork the challenges of designing and building this vast aircraft hangar were overcome using Tekla Structural Designer and Tekla Structures.
Mason Navarro Pledge used Tekla Structural Designer to ensure a timber canopy of a new building would withstand the wind forces coming off from River Thames.
Industrial structures tend to be incredibly complex and involve unique loading requirements beyond those associated with traditional buildings. This can include everything from heavy equipment and anc
Join us as Trevor Bruce, PE answers some of your basic questions including what is embodied carbon? What impact does it have and why it is important? What resources are available to help quantify embo
Often it is necessary to apply wind loading to portions of a structure that are not clad, especially for Industrial Structures, and manually performing this task can be very labor-intensive. The new O
The stiffness of concrete members is determined in large part by their state of cracking - which can vary between the ‘extreme’ conditions of entirely uncracked and fully cracked. The new Partially Cr
Users asked and we listened - the various Drift checks performed within Tekla Structural Designer (TSD) have been thoroughly updated and enhanced. While TSD has always performed these checks in line w
Working as a structural engineer, you’re probably familiar with the phrase, "When in doubt, make it stout". The fact is, the structural engineering tools of yesterday required a level of “guesstimatin
With Structural Engineers typically concerned primarily with the strength and stiffness of a structure, it can be difficult to give the necessary attention to secondary aspects such as Fireproofing an
Structural Engineers often find themselves in situations where they need to account for the significant weight of a piece of equipment and associated loading such as wind, but do not actually have the
