A Quick Overview

This course titled "Analysis & Design of Buildings using STAAD Pro: A Professional Approach" teaches you all the things required for the structural analysis and design of a building, be it RCC or Steel. This course doesn't require you to have any prior experience in this software or any other structural design software. 

You will start with the absolute basics i.e. calculating loads on a structure. Your trainer proceeds step by step through the process of modelling, load calculations, applying dead loads, live loads, wind loads and seismic loads. Next, trainer proceeds further on how to assign the properties to the structural members, assigning the releases and supports. Final stage shall be guidelines on how to analyse and assign the design parameters and commands. The trainer finishes the lectures by explaining how a user can optimize the structure as per the industry standards.

The course will help you learn all the aspects of the software from very basic and we will proceed with higher levels of the software as the course progresses. Once you complete this course, you will have all the necessary knowledge to do structural design of any building. You can work as a structural designer or can do the structural design of buildings on your own projects.

This course also summarizes the IS design code requirements and industry practice design criteria, design loads and other design consideration for a RCC and Structural steel building that are being followed in the industry.

You shall learn how to use STAAD.Pro connect edition to model, analyse and design any type of structure. E.g. residential buildings, commercial buildings, steel structures all on STAAD.Pro connect edition.

You shall also learn how to use RCDC for structural detailing and drafting.

What you’ll learn

  • How to model, analyse and design any steel or concrete structure on STAAD.Pro connect edition
  • How to calculate Dead Load, Live Loads, Seismic Loads and Wind Loads as per IS Codes
  • How to design Indian Standard codes compliant RCC and steel structure
  • How to use STAAD RCDC for design calculations and documentation

Course Syllabus

1Introduction to Basics

The module covers the

  • GUI of the software
  • Types of structure
  • Material Specifications
  • Support Conditions
  • Design Parameters and General Intro to Analysis & Post Processing options available in STAAD.Pro

 

2Modeling of RC Building

This module covers the steps involved in modeling, design and analysis of RCC structure. We will go through the Structure’s framework and structural elements considered for study.

At the end of the session, students will learn the generation of nodal structure/model of the given building as per geometry using STAAD Pro

3Input Generation

The next step involves the input viz material specifications, assigning supports, constants and design parameters of the model under study. The analysis of the building as per requirements will be discussed.

4Load Generation

The Load Cases and Load Combinations to consider while designing a structure will be discussed in this module.

The load calculations involved for each load case viz.

  • Dead Load
  • Live Load
  • Wind Load will be done manually as per the codal standards with the help of MS-Excel.

The calculated load will then be applied on the software model.

5Analysis of the model

This module covers the complete analysis part of the structure.

  • Post Processing Results – Output file will be explained.
  • It covers the interpretation of the results and extracting SFD, BMD, Reaction and Displacements for design purposes.

6Output Interpretation

At the end of the session, students will able to

  • Understand and execute the design of structural elements (slab, beam, column and foundation ) with the aid of STAAD Pro and verify the results with manual calculation sheets.

7Introduction to Steel Structures

This module covers the types of steel structures and introduction to various components in a steel building

  • Rafters
  • Purlins
  • Side wall & End wall Girts
  • Column
  • Bay spacing
  • Cladding

8Modeling of steel building

In this module, we will discuss the steel structure taken for study. The modeling of the structure will be carried out using coordinate method.

9Input Generation

The Inputs to be given as per the specifications and codal standards will be explained first and then generated in the model.

The loads considered in a steel building will be calculated using MS Excel and applied on the model.

10Analysis of the model

After entering the input parameters and specifying the design specs, the analysis of the structure is carried out in this module.

11Result Extraction

This module covers the interpretation of Output file generated and extraction of results like Bending Moment, Shear Force Diagram and Serviceability check for each element considered in the building under study.

12Documentation & Verification of the Output

At the end of this session we will be going through

  • The representation of the analysis carried out in the form of document and drawing.
  • Things to remember and consider while representing the design in the form of drawing (Detailing drawing involving C/S and L/S) and how to cross-check the extracted results from software with manual calculation.
