New Connection Support in the RISA-Tekla Link V3

Check out the new connection mapping between Tekla Structures and RISAConnection in the RISA-Tekla Link V3.  The RISA-Tekla Link now supports these new connection components in Tekla Structures:

  • 182:  Column with Stiffeners

This connection matches the Column/Beam Direct Weld Moment connection

  • 14:  Joining Plates

This connection can be used for both beam and column splices and matches the Beam/Column Extended End Plate Splice connection

  • 77:  Splice Connection

This connection can be used for both beam and column splices.  It can also be used for both shear and moment connections.  For moment connections it can also work for either the flange-plate moment or the directly welded moment connection.  How it is mapped is dependent on the pieces found in Tekla Structures.

–  If no flange weld or flange plates are found then the connection will come over as a shear splice.

–  If a flange weld is found then the connection will come over as a directly welded moment connection.
