STEP 1: STRUCTURAL GEOMETRY I. Introduction II. What does STAAD.pro mean? 1. STAAD.

pro is a general purpose program for performing the analysis and design of a wide variety of types of structure. 2. Developer of STAAD.pro REI – Research Engineers International 3. Latest version: STAAD.pro V8i III. General Overview: 1. How to open STAAD.pro 2. 4 Types of Structures a. Space b. Plane c. Floor d. Truss 3. STAAD.pro Environment Organization Title Bar 1. Main Menu 2. Toolbar 3. Page Control 4. Data area 5. Main Window 4. Two Coordinate Axes: 1. Classification a. Global Coordinate axis b. Local Coordinate axis 2. Relation/Beta Angle 5. Open an Existing Structure 6. Two methods of Model Generation and Assigning of Structural Data and Relationship a. Graphical User Interface (GUI) b. Input Command Interface 7. STAAD.pro Three Basic Steps 1. Structural Geometry/Model Generation 2. Load System 3. Analysis and Design Three Entities on Modeling 1. Node – joint, junction , intersection and point 2. Member – two node entity E.g. beam, column, truss members 3. Element a. Plate – 3 or 4 node entity E.g. slabs and walls b. Surface Element – 3 to multiple node entity E.g. shear wall and reinforced concrete wall c. Solid entity – 8-node entity E.g. huge solid structures
