To update the physical model with section designs
To update the physical model with section designs as selected in STAAD.Pro, use the following procedure.
If you have used the code design features in STAAD.Pro to select sections, you update the physical model with those changes.
Physical Modeling in the
The STAAD.Pro Physical Modeler window opens. The Member Profile Design Selection dialog opens.
- Select the Default selection criteria to use for selecting members. This sets in the selection out of the recommended design profiles. By default, Max Iz is selected. For each physical member using one of a selection of methods in the drop-down, you can sort the recommended design profiles.
Change Selection drop-down to see a table of
the analytical members, the corresponding physical members, and the section
selection for each based on the selection criteria.
To… Do this… update with a design member from STAAD.Pro check one of the Action check boxes corresponding to the design section you want to use retain the section initially used in STAAD.Pro Physical Modeler clear one of the Action check boxes for that physical member. All checkboxes for that physical member will also be cleared.
- Click Commit. The physical model sections are updated to the selected profiles from the design.
The operation of updating the sections changes the physical model, which in turn changes the underlying analytical model. Therefore, the design data is no longer available due to this change.
