Trimble introduced three new versions of its software for structural engineering, fabrication and construction teams—Tekla Structures 2018, Tekla Structural Designer 2018 and Tekla Tedds 2018. These solutions provide increased control and improved documentation through constructible Building Information Modeling (BIM) workflows for stakeholders in structural steel and concrete, including designers, detailers and fabricators, concrete contractors, general contractors and structural engineers.
Tekla Tedds 2018 introduces a variety of new calculations that enable improved productivity for civil and structural engineers. The easy-to-use software offers a quality assured library of code compliant calculations that are visible for easy review and validation.
A growing number of construction professionals, governments and owners around the world are embracing BIM technologies and processes. Projects around the world, from housing and bridges to factories and skyscrapers, are using Trimble’s structural BIM solutions. Continuous development of Tekla BIM solutions demonstrates Trimble’s commitment to innovation in structural engineering, off-site prefabrication and on-site efficiency.
To perform calculations in Tedds , you simply need to select the calculation that you need in the Tedds calculation library. Tedds automatically runs the calculation, and prompts you for any additional information that is needed.
If the calculation requires information that you would traditionally obtain from a printed source (such as a book of section properties, safe load tables, or code graphs), Tedds allows you to select the details in a data list, a data table, or a data graph.
Once you have completed the input and made the appropriate selections, Tedds completes the calculations and displays the results.
Once you have performed the calculation, you can save it to disc, send it to a range of destinations, print it, or recalculate it.
