How can I centrally deploy Tekla Tedds?

I want to centrally deploy Tekla Tedds what do I need to do to be able to do this? Tekla installations are designed to support distributed deployment scenarios using Windows Group Policy or proprietary Software Management Systems (SMS). The SMS software will vary depending upon your chosen deployment process and therefore we are unable to offer detailed technical assistance on how to impliment this. What we can provide is a list of requirements / components and how to install them to allow you to package up a centralized install in your chosen deployment process. Where is the information

Why is the shear capacity of a steel member higher in the minor axis?

Question: Why is the shear capacity of a steel member higher in the minor axis? I have only applied a point load in the middle of a simply supported beam ("I" section) member and find that the shear capacity is higher in the minor axis than it is in the major axis. Why is that the case? Answer: The reason the shear capacity is higher in the minor axis for some members is due to the calculated shear area (Av). When an "I" beam is loaded in the major axis you have the web resisting the majority of the shear force as opposed to two flanges when loaded in the minor axis. Example In this example
