A Quick Overview

Construction industries nowadays work on 3D environments and shared platforms to facilitate better understanding and coordination of the project. This process of working in a common environment is known as Building Information Modelling (BIM). Tekla being one such tool is widely used in the industries to support such demands. This course will introduce you to one software of TEKLA known as TEKLA STRUCTURAL DESIGNER (TSD). TSD is a 3D modelling software which is used for modelling, analysis and design of structures as well as to generate 2D drawings complacent to an array of international codes of practice. This course is designed to learn the software with an example of RCC and steel building. This will give an insight into real life projects and steps involved to model and design the structure as well as to go through various problems that you would normally encounter and derive the solutions for it.

COURSE SYLLABUS

1Planning structural layout and introduction to TSD

 In this week you will learn to develop a structural layout plan using the software TEKLA STRUCTURAL DESIGNER. The topics to be covered under this week are: -

  • The program interface and commands required to run the program. 
  • Introduction to grids and construction levels in the software
  • Study of an industrial steel building and the considerations involved in the planning of the general arrangement. The building will have two floors and a roof floor with portal frame arrangements.

2Modeling of the industrial Steel Structure-Part 1

In this week you will continue based on the structural plan understanding from the last week and start developing model on the software. The topics to be covered under this week are: -

  • Modeling of steel columns
  • Modeling of Steel beams at ground floor
  • Learn managing properties using TSD
  • Validation of the model

3Modeling of the industrial Steel Structure-Part 2

In this week you continue the modeling of the remaining elements based on previous learning. The topics to be covered under this week are: -

  • Modeling of beams for the rest of the floor with reference to the structural plan
  • Modeling of longitudinal and plan bracings
  • Modeling of slabs
  • We will run validation of the model and in the process, we will encounter the errors and the ways to solve them

4Loading for the industrial steel structure-Part 1

 In this week you will move from modeling to load applications. We will focus on gravity loads and their application on the model based on the inputs and IS code.

The topics to be covered under this week are: -

  • Calculation and application of dead load 
  • Calculation and application of live loads
  • Calculation and application of crane load

5Loading for the industrial steel structure-Part 2

 In this week you will calculate lateral loads based on IS code and apply on the steel structural model. The topics to be covered under this week are: -

  • Calculation and application of manual wind load 
  • Application of wind load using wind wizard from the software
  • Calculation and application of seismic load in the mode

6Analysis and Design of Steel Structure

 In this week you will conclude the design of the steel building. The topics to be covered under this week are: -

  • Check and review analysis settings.
  • Analysis of the model
  • Interpretation of analysis results to understand the structural behavior.
  • Design of sub and superstructure elements of the structure

7Modeling of RC residential structure

In this week you will learn to use the TEKLA STRUCTURAL DESIGNER to model and design RC residential building.

 The topics to be covered under this week are: -

  • Understand structural layout plan for a RC structure based on an architectural drawing
  • Generation of a new model and grid modeling
  • Learn unique floor model in TSD
  • Modeling of RC columns
  • Modeling of RC beams
  • Modeling of shear walls 

8Loading for RC residential structure

In this week you will learn to calculate gravity loads and lateral loads apply to the model based on inputs and IS code.

 The topics to be covered under this week are: -

  • Calculation and application of dead load 
  • Calculation and application of live loads
  • Calculation and application of wind load 

9Loading and analysis for RC residential structure

 In this week ,you will continue on lateral loadings based on inputs and IS code and run analysis.

 The topics to be covered under this week are: -

  • Calculation and application of Seismic load 
  • Check and review analysis settings
  • Analysis of the model
  • Interpretation of analysis results to understand the structural behaviour

10Design for RC residential structure

 In this week you will design the elements of the structure and will learn to group the members.

 The topics to be covered under this week are: -

  • Check and design column size and reinforcement
  • Check and design beam size and reinforcement
  • Group members based on their detailing

11Design for RC residential structure

 In this week you will continue the design of remaining elements of the structure. The topics to be covered under this week are: -

  • Design floor slabs
  • Design foundation for the building
  • Introduction to report generation of the structure

12Generation of report and drawings for Steel Industrial and RC structure

 In this week you will learn to generate reports and drawings which are used for submission while working on a live project. The topics to be covered under this week are: -

  • Generating reports for members using the steel and RC model
  • Managing the drawing layers in the software
  • Generating arrangement and detail drawings from the steel and RC model
