Elastic analysis method is used to obtain the forces and moments for design. Analysis is done for the primary and combination loading conditions provided by the user. Therefore, it is your responsibility to enter all necessary loads and load combination factors for design in accordance with the Building Structure Loadings Code GB 50009-2012, Building Structures Seismic code GB 50011-2010, or other relevant design codes. You are allowed complete flexibility in providing loading specifications and using appropriate load factors to create necessary loading situations. This process is completed in the STAAD.Pro Analytical Modeling or Physical Modeling workflows.
Depending upon the analysis requirements, a regular (elastic) stiffness analysis or P-Delta analysis may be specified. Dynamic analysis may also be performed and the results combined with static analysis results.
