D3.B.7 Design Operations

STAAD.Pro contains a broad set of facilities for the design of structural members as individual components of an analyzed structure. The member design facilities provide the user with the ability to carry out a number of different design operations. These facilities may be used selectively in accordance with the requirements of the design problem.

The operations to perform a design are:

  • Specify the load cases to be considered in the design; the default is all load cases.

  • Specify design parameter values, if different from the default values.

  • Specify whether to perform code checking or member selection along with the list of members.

These operations may be repeated by the user any number of times depending upon the design requirements.
