How to do P-Delta Analysis in Tekla Structural Designer ?

Tekla Structural Designer (TSD) is a simple, integrated design & analysis software that enables engineers to deliver safe, effective and rationalized design more quickly, regardless of structural material. Reinforcement drawings for the entire building or tones of steel for estimating, all available in a touch of a button.

We now know that TSD has the option of both linear and non-linear 2nd order methods of analysis, both types will give P-Δ and P-δ (P-Delta) effects as you can see in the diagram given below.

Today we came with the most wanted topic on Tekla Structural Designer and the topic is how to do P-Delta Analysis on TSD? 

So the answer is Yes

So before going to start the process let's know about the meaning of P-Delta in Structural Analysis.

In regard to structural Engineering, P-Delta analysis involves geometric nonlinearity, and the effect relates to the sudden changes  in shear, moment etc. at the structure base. Equilibrium compatibility relations of a structural system loaded in its deflected configuration is involved here.

Let's discuss the process. For starting you need to make sure that the building model and assigning of loads is complete in TSD

  1. Open the TSD workframe then click “Analyse” then you will find option "2nd Order" click there and select combination unique and select all the combinations and click OK. After this the analysis of structure will be done.

2. Select the load combinations and click OK. After this the analysis of structure will be done.

 As a result you will find Axial Load. Shear force, Reactions,  Moments etc. and it's values. 

So this is all about  P-Delta Analysis in Tekla Structural Designer.
