D. Design Briefs
Designs are performed on design members and design slabs according to a set of rules defined in the appropriate code. A number of the criteria, such as the dimensions of the beams, columns, and slabs have already been defined in the STAAD.Pro model. However, certain aspects have not, such as the grade of concrete and steel reinforcing bars. All the parameters that are required are collected together and referred to as a Design Brief. Each Design Brief is tailored to the requirements of the governing design code.
Details of contents of each brief can be found in section 4.3.5.
c_design_brief_dialogs for information on the dialogs for a specific member type and code.
