T.1 Short-listing the load cases to be used in steel design

The steel design has to be performed for load cases 1 and 3 only per the specification at the beginning of this tutorial. To instruct the program to use just these cases, and ignore the remaining, you will use the LOAD LIST command.

The STAAD input file commands generated are:

  1. On the Anlaysis and Design ribbon tab, select the Load List tool in the Analysis Data group.

    The Load List dialog opens.

  2. From the Load Cases list box on the left, double-click on 1: DEAD + LIVE and 3: 75 Percent of [DL+LL+WL] to add these loads to the Load List box on the right.
  3. Click OK.
