Tendon properties

Use the options on this tab to define the following properties:



Tendon size and grade

Select the tendon size and grade from the catalog of available options.

Number of tendons

Enter the number of tendons in the group.

Spacing between tendons, S

If you have specified more than one tendon, input the spacing (S) between tendons.

Rotation angle

Specify the rotation angle of tendon/tendon group around the input points from the default plane. The default plane is the plane which is parallel to the“strong axis”of the part.

Grouted system

Specify whether the tendon is to be a grouted system or a non-grouted system. This option defines whether Tekla Structures uses the strand in determining the ultimate capacity.

Furthermore, you can input custom or vendor specific post-tensioning information, including unique and/or multiple tendon systems, grease thickness, jacket material, jacket thickness, and jacket diameter.
