About analysis applications
An 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
is an external analysis and design software that you use with Tekla Structures to analyze and design structures.
The analysis application calculates the forces, moments, and stresses on the structures. It also calculates the displacements, deflections, rotations, and warpingdeforming that twists the part by rotating the ends of the part
of objects under various loading conditions.
Tekla Structures links with a number of analysis applications and also supports export with them in several formats. The analysis application in which you run structural analysis uses data from the Tekla Structures analysis models to generate analysis resultsresults that concern forces and stresses and that an analysis application generates after it has run a structural analysis on an analysis model
Analysis results are stored in Tekla Structures in an analysis results database.
To analyze Tekla Structures analysis models with an analysis application, you need to install a direct link between Tekla Structures and the analysis application.
