31/01/2018 – Ver. 66 – Connection auto-design, new feature to delete not used definitions

In the latest version of the software we have added the following new features:

  • Connection auto-design. The software is now able to automatically calculate the number of tensile and shear connections needed in order to comply with all the relevant strength verifications. According to an iterative procedure, it automatically modifies the connection definitions and updates accordingly the stiffness parameters that lead the model. The user, once he has chosen the connection typologies, can rely on TimberTech Buildings for the assessment of the optimal spacing between the shear connections and the optimal number of tensile connections.
  • New feature to delete not used definitions. It is now possible to delete the definitions (structural elements and loads) that are no more used in the model through this new and simple feature.
  • Bug fixing and small improvements
