Example 1 (Reinforced Concrete Building)

(MODELING)

Using concept of auto-generation method by STAAD-Pro V8i software,


sketch and construct the idealization numbering of joints and members
concrete structure shown below (All dimensions unit in meters). Edit
the commands for the modeling of the reinforced concrete structure
shown below:
( x- 3bays @ 4m, y- 2story @ 3m, z- 3bay @ 5m)
Note: Ec = 3200 kip/in2, Density = 2500kg/m3 circular column section
(Radius = 20cm), interior beam size (T-section) [flange bf = 80cm,
tf=15cm], [web H = 60cm, bw = 30cm], edge beam size (30*50), roof
and floor slab thickness = 15cm. external and internal support (fixed),
corner support hinge.
