TR.48 Steel and Aluminum Design Specifications
This section describes the specifications necessary for structural steel & aluminum design.
The specific details of the implementation of these codes may be found in:
Additional related information:

- TR.49 Code Checking Specification and TR.49.1 Member Selection Specification describe the CODE CHECKING and MEMBER SELECTION options respectively.
- TR.49.2 Member Selection by Optimization discusses member selection by optimization.
Shortlisting Load Cases Used for Design
There are two options available to instruct STAAD.Pro to use only specific load cases for design:
- The LOAD LIST command.
- The LOAD LIST ENVELOPE command, which can only be used if load envelopes have been created (using the DEFINE ENVELOPE command). Once envelopes have been created, this command must be used or the design will be based on all active load cases or those specified in a LOAD LIST command, rather than only the envelopes.
