Crane gantry girder design (EN1993)

This video demonstrates the Tekla Tedds Crane gantry girder design calculation. The calculation checks the design of simply supported gantry girders comprising of either a plain I section, an I section with a capping plate or an I section with a capping channel, carrying a conventional overhead or an underslung travelling crane. Further information on Tekla Tedds can be found here.

Tedds Projects

In this tutorial you will learn about Tedds Projects. If you’re working on a job that requires several Tedds calculations, for example a calculation package to be completed and submitted together, then the best way to do this is to create a Project. A Tedds Project allows you to group multiple Tedds documents together, change their order, organize them into folders and edit their headers with a common project header.

Using the Tedds application

In this tutorial you will learn what Tekla Tedds is, the difference between the Tedds application and Tedds for Word, before learning how to use the Tedds application. You will learn about configuring the software for your region and how to select a calculation from the engineering library. You will learn about the user interface of the Tedds application and the calculations before completing the header details of the output document and printing, saving and briefly looking at other output options.

Wood shear wall design (NDS)

This video demonstrates the Tekla Tedds Wood shear wall design calculation. This calculation determines the capacity of wood structural panel and lumber sheathed shear walls acting as elements of a lateral force resisting system in accordance with the design provision contained within the ANSI/AF&PA Special Design Provisions for Wind and Seismic. It allows both allowable stress design (ASD) and load resistance factor design (LRFD) using either the segmented or perforated shear wall design methods.

Pile analysis (FHWA)

This video demonstrates the Tekla Tedds Pile analysis (FHWA) calculation. The calculation considers static analysis of the resistance capacity of single piles, driven or drilled, in multiple geomaterial strata. Analysis to load and resistance factor design (LRFD) or allowable stress design (ASD) methods are available. Further information on Tekla Tedds can be found here.

Creating a User Interface

This video will teach you how to create a user interface for your custom calculations. We'll introduce creating groups and controls within the interface. Then we'll see how to enhance the basic interface by adding data tables, displaying and hiding options based on conditions, and adding pictures. By the end of this lesson you'll be able to create your own user interface.

The User Library and Publishing Calcs

This video will start by introducing the user library. This is where you save, manage and use the calculations you have written. We'll look at how to create a library set, then how to save and use them in other calculations. The lesson will end with an introduction to publishing calculations. This provides an easy and quick way for you to share your calculations with others in your company.

Introduction to Writing Calculations

This video is an introduction to calculation writing in Tedds for Word. We recommend watching Lesson 2 and 3 in the US Tedds Fundamentals Tutorials series before proceeding.  This video will teach you the fundamental rules for writing calculations, how to work with units, how to properly define variables, write expressions and format results. Then we'll look at common mistakes and error messages.

Steel member fire resistance design (EN1993)

This video demonstrates the Tekla Tedds steel member fire resistance design calculation to the Eurocode. The calculation checks the capacity of a single steel member subject to bending to maintain its required mechanical resistance in case of fire during the required time of exposure. The member may be unprotected (bare steel) or protected. The steel member being designed may support a composite or concrete slab, i.e. the member is only exposed on three sides if required.

Wood member design (NDS)

This video demonstrates the Tekla Tedds Wood member design calculation to the National Design Specification for Wood Construction.  The calculation checks the design of solid wood, glulam and structural composite members subject to major and minor axis bending, shear, bearing and axial tension or compression, and flitch members subject to major axis bending, shear and bearing. All design is in accordance with the provisions for Allowable Stress Design (ASD) and Load and Resistance Factor Design (LRFD) methods.

Timber stud design (EN1995)

This video demonstrates the Tekla Tedds Timber stud design calculation to the Eurocode.  The calculation checks the design of a solid timber or glulam stud subjected to uniformly distributed and point loads. Permanent, imposed and wind loads can be defined depending on the load duration selected. The studs may be braced in the weaker axis by a suitable sheathing fixed to one or both faces, or by the use of dwangs tied into a bracing system or support. Further information on Tekla Tedds can be found here.
