D8.D.2 Allowable Stresses

The member design  and code checking in STAAD.Pro are based upon the allowable stress design method as per IS:802 (1995). It is a method for proportioning structural members using design loads and forces, allowable stresses, and design limitations for the appropriate material under service conditions.

This section discusses the salient features of the allowable stresses specified by IS:802 and implemented in STAAD.Pro.
