Starting in STAAD.Pro
This example includes a fully modeled concrete structure, including loads. The modeling and application of loads per a building code specification are outside the scope of this tutorial. Refer to the STAAD.Prohelp contents for additional information.
Using RCDC as a Standalone Application
You can also use RCDC as a standalone application for concrete design. You will still need to have a analytical model created in STAAD.Pro for the basis of the physical model as well as for analytical results.
Design and detailing of foundation elements such as footings and pilecaps must be performed by starting RCDC as a standalone application and creating a project associated with an analytical model.
