Main Steps of Modeling
Entering job information.
Building model geometry.
Defining member properties, sections.
Defining pre-analysis print out, analysistype, and post-analysis printout.
Defining design requirements.

Select from here the units,that we will deal with.Assume that we have m,kN.For a new file, select thetype of structure you wantto solve. Here select trusstype.

The STAAD Graphical Environment will be invoked and the following screenwill appear:

1. ENTERING JOB INFORMATION.
You
MUST
put a job name here
How to Define the Frame Geometry?
1. Create nodes at certain coordinates and then connectin between these nodes.2. Use Construction lines3. Draw it AutoCAD and Import as “.dxf ”file.4. Using the Staad editor 5. Combination of all the above.
2. BUILDING MODEL (STRUCTURE) GEOMETRY
To the morecomplicated

After clicking Snap Node/Beam, usethe mouse and connect betweennodes created at the intersections of construction lines.

Property:
In which we can define or choose sections propertiesof the members of the truss.
Spec.:
In which we can define or choose members’specifications.
Support:
In which we can define the supports properties (restraints).
Material
In which we can define the material properties.(ex. E, density, etc.)
3. DEFINING MEMBER PROPERTIES, SECTIONS.

Property:Assume Preliminary Sections:
Using the
.The frame girder is section

The columns are

Supports
By clicking on the support iconthe shown window will appear.We have to create new kinds of supports.We have two kinds of supports1. Fixed Support.2. Hinged Support.

Assigning Supports at nodes
Use the mouse and click on the nodes according to its support type as shown below
