T.1 Specifying the analysis type

A linear, static analysis is required for this model. You can also instruct STAAD.Pro to provide a static equilibrium report.

The STAAD input file commands generated are:

  1. On the Analysis and Design ribbon tab, select the Analysis Commands tool in the Analysis Data group.

    The Analysis/Print Commands dialog opens.

    Tip: If the Analysis/Print Commands dialog does not open automatically, then click Define Commands in the Analysis - Whole Structure dialog.
  2. In the Analysis/Print Commands dialog, select the Perform Analysis tab.
  3. Select the Statics Check option.
    Note: In response to this option, a report consisting of the summary of applied loading and summary of support reactions, for each load case, will be produced in the STAAD output file.
  4. Click Add.
    Tip: The command is added to the list of commands outlined in the Analysis - Whole Structure dialog on the right-hand side of the window. The command has a green checkmark to indicate that it is valid. You can review the outline of the command input structure here.
  5. Click Close.
