XS_​​ISO_​LEG_​​LENGTH_​​AS_​​WELDSIZE

Category : Welds

When XS_​AISC_​WELD_​MARK is set to FALSE , set XS_ISO_LEG_LENGTH_AS_WELDSIZE to:

  • TRUE to use the weld size as the leg length (z) of the fillet welds.
  • FALSE to use the weld size as the throat thickness (a) of the fillet welds.

Note:

The weld prefix overrides the setting of the advanced option XS_ISO_LEG_LENGTH_AS_WELDSIZE. If you have set the prefix of a weld to a , the weld size determines the design throat thickness. When the weld prefix is z , the weld size determines the leg length.

If the last character of the weld prefix is s , Tekla Structures creates the solid weld object so that a equals weld size.

This advanced option is model specific and the setting is saved in the options databasedatabase file that contains the settings of model-specific general settings and advanced options

There are two options databases, the model options database (options_model.db) and the drawing options database (options_drawings.db).

.

After changing this setting, modify existing welds or their properties to activate the new setting and to update the weld solids.
