D5.B. European Codes - Steel Design per Eurocode 3 [DD ENV 1993-1-1:1992]

STAAD.Pro is capable of performing steel design based on the European code EC3 DD ENV 1993-1-1:1992 Eurocode 3: Design of steel structures Part 1.1 General rules and rules for buildings.

Note: The DD ENV 1993-1-1:1992 code has now been officially superseded by EN 1993-1-1:2005. Hence releases of STAAD.Pro subsequent to version SS3 (20.07.08.xx) will not support this design code. The SS3 build will perform member design to this code for legacy files but has this code removed from the design codes list in the GUI. Users are advised to use the EN 1993-1-1:2005 version for Eurocode 3 design.
Tip: Design per EC3 DD ENV 1993-1-1:1992 is also available in the Steel Design mode in the Graphical User Interface.
