D. To open a model in the Chinese Steel Design workflow

To design steel members per the Chinese GB 50017-2017 code, use the following procedure.

In order to use the Chinese steel design workflow, the steel sections must be from the steel section table or from a user-provided table. Refer to Member Properties for details.
注記: In previous versions, wind and response spectra load cases per the Chinese code were applied within the SSDD application. These loads are now applied in the analytical modeling workflow within STAAD.Pro: Load combinations should be generated per the GB 50009-2012 specification.
  1. Open an input file in STAAD.Pro which contains the steel sections to be designed.
  2. Perform a successful analysis.
  3. Select Chinese Steel Design in the Workflows panel.
