Analysis node properties

Use the Analysis node properties dialog box to view and modify the properties of a nodeanalysis model object that Tekla Structures creates at a defined point of an analysis model based on analysis part connectivity

Tekla Structures creates nodes at ends and intersection points of analysis parts, and the corners of analysis areas.

in 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.

To access the dialog box, double-click an analysis nodeanalysis model object that Tekla Structures creates at a defined point of an analysis model based on analysis part connectivity

Option

Description

Supports

Defines which support conditions are used for the node.

The options are:

  • Get supports from part(s)

    The support conditions of a corresponding part end are used for the node.

  • User-defined node supports

    You can define the support conditions for the node.

If you select User-defined node supports , you can select one of the following options:

These options automatically set the degrees of freedom for the node.

You can modify a predefined combination to suit your needs. If you do that, Tekla Structures indicates it with this option:

Rotation

If you selected User-defined node supports , you can define the rotation of the node.

The options are:

  • Not rotated

  • Rotated

If you select Rotated , you can define the rotation, or you can set the rotation by the current work plane by clicking Set rotation by current work plane.

Ux

Uy

Uz

Rx

Ry

Rz

Define the translational (U) and rotational (R) degrees of freedom (displacements and rotations) of the node in the global x, y, and z directions.

The options are:

  • Free

  • Fixed

  • Spring

If you select Spring , enter the spring constant. The units depend on the settings in File menu > Settings > Options > Units and decimals .
