What is an analysis model
When you use Tekla Structures to model, analyze, and design structures, you will become familiar with the following concepts:
A physical modelstructural model with a direct or indirect counterpart in the structure to be built
is a structural 3D model that includes the parts you create using Tekla Structures , and information related to them. Each part in the physical model will exist in the completed structure.
The physical model also contains information about the loads and load groups that act on the physical model parts, and information about the building code that Tekla Structures uses in the load combination processprocess in which some simultaneously acting load groups are multiplied by their partial safety factors and combined with each other according to specific rules
Load combination rules are specific to a design process and are defined in design codes.
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.
is a structural modelmodel that represents a structure to be constructed
that is created from a physical model. It is used for analyzing structural behavior and load bearing, and for design.
When you create an analysis model, Tekla Structures generates the following analysis objects and includes them in the analysis model:
Analysis parts, bars, members, and areas of the physical parts
Support conditions for nodes
Rigid links between the analysis parts and nodes
Loads to analysis parts
The analysis model also includes load combinations.
