Tekla launches Structural Designer
Software specialist Tekla has launched Tekla Structural Designer, said to be a dedicated analysis and design software for structural engineers working on commercial building projects.
Tekla says Structural Designer complements Tekla Structures – extending the benefits of 3D modelling for engineers with an innovative approach that combines analysis and design into a single, seamless process.
Tekla Structural Designer offers features for optimising steel design, and enables engineers to compare alternative design schemes quickly, efficiently, manage changes and collaborate seamlessly. Regardless of project size or complexity, Tekla Structural Designer’s fully automated, productivity-enhancing capabilities enable engineering firms to successfully bid on more projects and enhance their client service.
“Many of us at Tekla are engineers ourselves and understand the importance that productivity, value engineering, constructability and change management play in the design and build process,” said Tekla Director of Engineering Segment Barry Chapman.
“We have created and added Tekla Structural Designer to our Tekla product portfolio to further extend the benefits of 3D modelling directly to engineers, by bringing them the power to analyse and design better in a way that can save time, cut costs and provide a competitive edge.”
Tekla Structural Designer is available now to a range of design codes, including British Standards, Eurocode and US design code. It offers a range of services including local technical support provided by experienced structural engineers and an online knowledge base with learning materials.
