Purpose and description

Use Arm vertical brace component to create vertical braces between the top and the bottom legs of truss.

System requirements

Tekla Structures version: Not version specific
Environments:   All

Installing Arm vertical brace

To install the extension:

  1. Download Transmission tower tools installer package from Tekla Warehouse. For more information see Downloading an application from Tekla Warehouse.
  2. Install the file package.

Using Arm vertical brace

To use the application:

  1. Open a Tekla model.
  2. Click the Applications & components button  in the side pane to open the Applications & components cataloguser interface for displaying or modifying information in categorized lists

    For example, profile catalog and shape catalog are catalogs.

    .
  3. Search for Arm vertical brace and then double-click to open it.
  4. Create two arm profiles (L profiles) in the same vertical plane.
  5. Select the main part(1) part that exists in a building object and that determines the position number for the assembly or cast unit and the direction of assembly or cast unit drawings

    (1) Main part can be an assembly main part or a cast unit main part.

    (2) input part that the user selects first when creating a component

    (2) Connections and details always have a component main part.

    (bottom truss).
  6. Select the second part (top truss).
  7. Pick the position.
The component is then created automatically.
Situation Description
Arm vertical brace component between top and bottom profiles.

Part identification key

  Part
1 Arm vertical braces

Picture

Use Picture tab to control the dimensions of the parts created in the Arm vertical brace component.

  1. Part position

      Description Default
    Define the distance from the top truss to vertical brace. Read form the GaugeLine.dat file (from model folder).
    Define the number of vertical braces. 1
    Define the spacing between the vertical braces.
    Use a space to separate spacing values. Enter a value for each space between vertical profiles. For example, if there are 3 vertical profiles, enter 2 values.
     
    Define the distance from vertical brace to the bottom truss. Read form the GaugeLine.dat file (from model folder).
    Define the distance from point position to first vertical brace. Read form the GaugeLine.dat file (from model folder). 
  1. Point positioning option

    Option Description Example
    Type 1 - measuring the distance perpendicularly from the center line of the two arm bottom members.
    Type 2 - measuring the distance along the arm bottom member (this second option allows to pick a point in the centerline, and this will be translated perpendicularly from the bracing).  

Parts

The Parts tab can be used for defining properties for the parts created by the Arm vertical brace component.

  1. Part properties

    Option Description Default
    Pos_No Define a prefix and a starting number for the part position number. br_1
    Define a prefix and a starting number for the assembly position number. BR_1
    Material Define material grade. S235JR
    Name Define a name that is shown in drawings and reports. BRACE
    Finish Define the finish type. No finish
    Class Define the class. 4
  1. Part dimensions

    Part Description Default
    Profile Define the profile of the vertical arm braces. L20*20*2

Parameters

The Parameters tab can be used for defining properties for the vertical braces created by the Arm vertical brace component.

      1. Brace orientation

        Option Description
        No brace
        Type 1 - Default
        The braces are placed so that the shorter leg is connected to the part.
        Type2
        The braces are placed so that the longer leg is connected to the part.
         Type 3
        Same as Type 2 but rotated.
        Type 4
        Same as Type 1 but rotated.
      1. Braces offset


          Description Default
        Define the offset of the left brace.
        This option is not visible if No brace option is selected in the Brace orientation list.
        0 mm
        Define the offset of the right brace.
        This option is not visible if No brace option is selected in the Brace orientation list.
        0 mm 

      1. Brace direction

      Option Description Default
      Creates the diagonal brace from left bottom to right top.
      Creates the diagonal brace from left top to right bottom.
