Filters in analysis models

You can use an 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.

filter to select parts to be included in an analysis model. You can also use filters to define which of the included parts are considered to be secondary analysis parts or braces in the analysis model.

The following filters are available in the analysis model properties :

  • Analysis model filter
  • Bracing member filter
  • Secondary member filter

These filters are based on selection filters , and Tekla Structures saves the settings with the analysis model propertiessettings that are defined by giving values to the properties associated with an analysis model

Analysis model settings can be defined in the physical model or in the analysis model.

. This means that you can check the criteria you used to select objects.

Tekla Structures automatically adds the new objects you create in the physical modelstructural model with a direct or indirect counterpart in the structure to be built

to the analysis model if they fulfill the criteria of the analysis model filter and analysis model content.


Use the analysis model filter to filter out non-structural parts, such as end plates, railings, and ladders, from the analysis model.
