SAP2000 A to Z Problems
The SAP2000 A to Z problems are intended to be a tool for learning to use the SAP2000 graphicinterface. You will probably get the most benefit from each problem if you first attempt to solveit yourself, and then after you are finished, you review our step-by-step solution.There are many ways to create these models. Your solution may be completely different fromour solution, that is not unexpected, and does not mean that either solution is wrong. Theimportant thing is to have these problems help you become familiar with the features of theSAP2000 graphic interface.Following is a table of contents for the SAP2000 A to Z problems.

Note: Our intent is that you try this problem on your own first. After you have solved it on yourown, you can step through our solution if desired. If you have problems trying to create themodel, then follow the steps in our solution.

To Do
Determine reactions for the loadcombination of DL + LL + EQ.Determine steel stress ratios.
