Analysis & Design
In the Profile Catalog dialog box, you can enter analysis values for each profile. In the analysis, the analysis applications that use the COM link calculate the analysis values and compare them to the values in the profile catalogcatalog that displays profiles and information on the profiles
In addition to the available profiles in the respective Tekla Structures environment, the user can add fixed or parametric user-defined profiles to the profile catalog. It is also possible to import profiles to the profile catalog.
. If the analysis applicationpart of Tekla Structures functionality that is developed in order to extend the capability of Tekla Structures but that is not included in the Tekla Structures installation
finds the values in the profile cataloguser interface for displaying or modifying information in categorized lists
For example, profile catalog and shape catalog are catalogs.
, it uses the catalog values.
To check the profile catalog for analysis values for all profiles, enter TRUE for the following advanced optionssettings used to customize Tekla Structures for specific companies, standards, users, or user groups
In Tekla Structures, advanced options are settings that are used, for example, in a specific project or geographical area, or by a specific company.
In Tekla Structures, advanced options usually begin with the initials XS and are followed by the name of the function, for example XS_BACKGROUND_COLOR.
After that, run the analysis.
The default value is FALSE.
If the profile catalog value differs significantly from the value the analysis application calculates, Tekla Structures writes a warning in the analysis log file. Use the advanced option XS_PROFILE_ANALYSIS_VALUE_DIFF_LIMIT to define the warning limit.
This advanced option is user specific and the setting is saved in options.bin under user folder. Restart Tekla Structures to activate the new value.
