EX. Physical Model Examples
The following models are included when STAAD.Pro is installed.
These files are located in the C:\Users\Public\Public Documents\STAAD.Pro CONNECT Edition\Samples\Sample Models\Physical Models\ folder (default location).
|Area Loads Example.std||This physical model example showcases how Area loads is applied by creating a panel on the stories. This area load gets assigned to the adjoining members (on the panel’s boundary edges) in terms of member distributed loads. Also, the model contains diaphragm defined for each of the floors. The structure is subjected to load categorized as Dead and Live Load groups which are then referenced in the load cases and consequently load combination.|
|Cabled stayed Tower Example.std||This example shows the modeling of a tower with cable stayed and fixed at their end. The self-weight of the cables is ignored by setting the ‘Ignore Self Weight’ property of the member. After analysis for this reason of ignoring the self-weight, it will show applied self -weight is less than the total weight of all. Also, Member Tension Only attribute is set for these cables. The columns are set with standard Pipe sections whereas the cables are set with circular sections. The structure is subjected Dead and wind load in the form of lateral loads in load groups and referenced in load cases and consequently load combination.|
|Concrete Building Example.std||This physical model example shows a concrete building with steel columns. The concrete slabs are created as single physical surface for each of the floors and for the lift well with openings for the doors and windows. The slabs are subjected to distributed load categorized in the dead and live load case directly as a load item. Also, linear load combination is defined.|
|Steel Framed Warehouse Example.std||This physical model example showcases a typical warehouse with standard steel sections of various shapes. Notice that the truss chords are defined as continuous members. The members are assigned with offsets in start and end. The structure is subjected to dead and live load on the frame structure in the form of self-weight and distributed loads. Also, linear load combination is defined.|
|Storehouse with Walls Example.std||This physical model example showcases a typical storehouse with standard steel sections of various shapes. The walls of the storehouse are created as physical surfaces. The structure is subjected to dead loads on the frame structure in the form of self- weight and point loads. Also, linear load combination is defined.|
