1 Tekla Structural Designer 2015
UK Manager’s Day Thursday 19th March 2015 Barry Chapman – Director, Engineering Segment

2 Tekla Structural Designer
Launched 10th March 2015 Tekla’s first major A&D solution Next generation of Fastrak & Orion Unique ‘game changer’ in the market Expands Tekla’s design > detailing > construction workflow

3 Tekla Structural Designer

4 Dedicated concrete buildings Dedicated steel buildings
Background CSC acquired General analysis 1980 Solve 1985 S-Frame 2013 Solve 2013 Dedicated concrete buildings 1998 Orion Dedicated steel buildings 1985 Fastrak 5950 1988 Fastrak Multi-storey 2004 Fastrak Building Designer 1976 D4 1982 D4+

5 Background Over 40 years A&D software experience
Recognized as market leader in UK Automated, productive & rigorous building design Fastrak dedicated for steel buildings Orion dedicated for RC buildings Different design approaches & codes  Different interfaces & data structures 

6 Background Single product required for steel & concrete
One product to learn, support & develop Mixed material buildings Quick comparison of alternative options Effective BIM integration Analysis, design & documentation together Complete re-write project started over 10 years ago 90+ man years work so far Best of breed Latest technologies Developed specifically for BIM Prof Bassam Imperial College

7 Tekla modelling solutions
Structural engineers have two key deliverables Construction documentation BIM tools - plans, elevations, sections, 3D views, details, material listing etc Code compliant design Ensuring the building complies with local codes of practice and is structurally safe

8 Introduction Dedicated software for the analysis and design of steel and/or concrete buildings British Standard, Eurocode or US design codes Typically used by AEC structural engineers Next generation of our Fastrak and Orion software Focused on providing commercial benefits Productivity Value Engineering Change management

9 Example models

10 Single model FE analysis Structural design One product One model

11 Modern ribbon interface

12 Automated Loading Engineers must calculate and apply loading
We provide tools to increase productivity Wind load & EHFs applied automatically

13 Automated Analysis Model
Engineers use an analysis ‘wire’ model to mathematically predict how a building will behave under applied loads The analysis ‘wire’ model is derived automatically for you from the physical model design force diagrams

14 Automated Concrete Design
Automatic rebar design for Beams, columns, walls & slabs Includes flat slab design & punching shear Automatic scheduling

15 Automated Steel Design
Automatic sizing of members Composite & non composite Plate girder design Truss design

16 Automated Rebar Drawings

17 Automated Beam Schedules

18 Documentation Structural calculations Engineers drawings BIM models 2D drawings (to scale DXFs) Contract documents – submitted by the Structural Engineer

19 Material Lists

20 One approach to BIM Developed specifically for BIM integration

21 Key benefits One model delivers everything you need for A&D
Minimise analysis time with powerful solver Increase productivity with design optimization Improve confidence with transparent results Reduce time taken to assess and react to changes Improve response times and communication Reduce risk of errors productivity + value engineering + change management

22 Customer transition All maintained customers will receive free upgrade
1 x Tekla Structural Designer licence for each Fastrak/Orion Can be installed and used alongside Fastrak/Orion We are not taking Fastrak/Orion away Networked licences now provided as standard Speak with our administration team if required Support will continue for Fastrak/Orion but no more upgrades Free training resources available to help transition We encourage your engineers to adopt ASAP

23 Summary “small changes can make a big difference” With the release of Tekla Structural Designer we firmly believe we are making a big change, which will make a massive difference to your engineering productivity

24 Thank you. Any questions?
Barry Chapman Director, Engineering Segment
