Copy load combinations between analysis models

Copy load combinations between analysis models

You can copy load combinations between analysis models within a physical modelstructural model with a direct or indirect counterpart in the structure to be built

. You can also copy between physical models if they have the same environment and load groups.

First you need to save the load combinations that you want to copy to a .lco file. If you want to make the load combinations available in another physical model, you need to copy the .lco file to the \attributes folder of the destination model, or to the project or firm folder. Then you can load the load combinations to another analysis modelstructural model that is created from a physical model and used on the one hand for analyzing structural behavior and load bearing, and on the other hand for design

Analysis model can be viewed in Tekla Structures in a model view.

Analysis model that is made with Tekla Structures can be worked on in other analysis and design software or application.

.

Save load combinations for later use

You can save the load combinations of an analysis model for later use in other analysis models.

  1. On the Analysis & design tab, click A&D models.
  2. In the Analysis & Design Models dialog box:
    1. Select an analysis model.
    2. Click Load combinations.
  3. In the Load Combinations dialog box:
    1. Enter a name for the saved load combinations in the box next to Save as.
    2. Click Save as.

      Tekla Structures saves the load combinations as a .lco file in the \attributes folder under the current modelmodel that is active in Tekla Structures

      The current model can be a single-user model, a shared model or a working model.

      folder.

  4. Click OK to close the dialog boxes.

Copy load combinations from another analysis model

You can copy load combinations from another analysis model that has the same load groups and environment.

  1. Ensure that the load combinations you want to copy have been saved in a .lco file.
  2. Check that the .lco file is located in the \attributes folder under the current model folderfolder that is used for storing files associated with a model

    Tekla Structures stores all files associated with a model in a folder it creates with the same name as the model database (.db1).

    In multi-user mode all users access the same model folder.

    , or in the project or firm folderfolder that is used for storing Tekla Structures-related files customized for a particular organization

    A Tekla Structures user can, for example, customize a company’s cloning templates and save them in a sub-folder located under the firm folder. After this, the customized cloning templates can be used in all projects carried out for the company.

    . If not, copy the .lco file.
  3. If you are copying load combinations between two physical models, open the model to copy to. If you are copying within a physical model, reopen the model.
  4. On the Analysis & design tab, click A&D models.
  5. In the Analysis & Design Models dialog box:
    1. Select the analysis model to copy to.
    2. Click Load combinations.
  6. In the Load Combinations dialog box:
    1. Select a load combinations file ( .lco ) from the list next to Load.
    2. Click Load.
  7. Click OK to close the dialog boxes.
