Create a load combination

Create a load combination

If needed, you can create load combinations for 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.

one by one.

Before you start, ensure that you have the appropriate load modeling codeinformation about the building or design code, and about the load group types, safety factors, and load combination factors used in the load combination

selected in File menu > Settings > Options > Load modeling > Current code.

  1. On the Analysis & design tab, click A&D models.
  2. In the Analysis & Design Models dialog box:
    1. Select an analysis model.
    2. Click Load combinations.
  3. In the Load Combinations dialog box, click New.
  4. In the Load Combination dialog box:
    1. Select a load combination(1) set of load groups multiplied by their partial safety factors that is created in the load combination process

      (1) Each load combination represents a loading situation to be checked according to the design code.

      (2) process in which some simultaneously acting load groups are multiplied by their partial safety factors and combined with each other according to specific rules

      (2) Load combination rules are specific to a design process and are defined in design codes.

      type from the Type list.
    2. Enter a unique name for the load combination.
    3. Use the arrow buttons to move load groups between the Load groups list and the Load combination table.
    4. If needed, modify the signs (+ or -) and combination factors in the Load combination table by clicking a value.
    5. Click Apply to create the load combination.
    6. If needed, repeat steps a–e to create more load combinations.
    7. Click OK to create the last load combination and close the dialog box.
  5. In the Load Combinations dialog box, click OK to save the load combinations.
