As we are moving in the era of computers, it is becoming very essential to learn different softwares useful in civil engineering as well. As world is demanding for more beautiful, more strong, yet more simple structure, engineers are leaning towards using softwares to try out different possibilities of best outcome. For Structural Engineer, now a days for designing buildings of 80 storey or even 110 storeys, manual calculations are becoming completed for analysis purpose. BENTLEY's STAAD-PRO v8i is a structural designing software used around the globe for this purpose.
Software consist of different STANDARD BUILDING CODES of many countries (e.g china,USA,India,etc.) inbuilt. All play important roles in respective countries as these are the standards set by countries.
User can Analyse and design
This will take less than a month to learn software, but remember it takes 3 to 4 months to master the software. The course is constructed in such a way that you will start from very basics and might end up creating Burj Khalifa !!!
Hello and welcome to CAD-SHEEKSHA. I'm Krishna Lodha, In this short video I've explained about entire course in short. Just go through video and get prepared for course :D
This is just a small Promotional video created to let you get familiar with this program.
Here Importance of Staad pro is stated in general. While the series of modules are explained in details. Program will work as:
STAAD stands for STructural Analysis And Design.
This videos gives information about basic history that one should know. Not much deeper as Its not needed.
This also covers the basic methods of analysis on which STAAD PRO functions worksMOMENT DISTRIBUTION METHOD
STIFFNESS MATRIX METHOD
As each software has its own kind of User Interface , the one for STAAD PRO is discussed in details here. As told in very first video, we will cover every minute detail.
Here Welcome screen is discussed thoroughly. Each option has its own importance which is discussed in deeper sense.
Welcome screen contains main tabs :
Each tab again has sub-tabs which are also discussed in short.
STAAD PRO works on a typical step-by-step procedure system. Each step has its own importance. Importance in the sense of its Function & its Place. Engineers has design the software such that every step must be followed in order, as given. you can not miss single step or you can not change the order of steps. Your model may get analysed but will have errors.
Methodology of staad pro is:
This is Very important video and covers basic components without which model can not be built in STAAD-PRO. It consist deep flash on :
Q. Analyse the given beam, joints are fixed,loading is given.
=> We will follow the methodology we discussed in Section 2 lecture 1.
This is just a sample problem set. If you have paid attention in above two lectures, this will be easy for you. As I have limit for giving practise problem, I recommend you create your own problems and solve them!!
Moving from 1-dimensional problem to 2-dimensional, this video shows analysis procedure for a simple frame structure. All important data is mentioned in problem itself. This is important lecture in reference to upcoming lecture.
Once your finished with the concept of 2D frame and how staad pro generates result for a Frame, In this video Multi-storey frame (2D) is analysed with STAAD-Pro.
Even though all commands are same, some steps varies little bit.
After being familiar with 2D frames , In this video lecture a 3D (XYZ) problem is discussed thoroughly.
This is the 2nd exercise in this curriculum, this exercise is based upon Frame analysis lecture. As I have limit for giving practise problem, I recommend you create your own problems and solve them!!
Civil engineering student. Structural engineering lover. Big dreamer. Software geek. Computers impacts on our life like nothing else. In order to stand out, you must be pro in softwares that defines your job. Here I've tried to create a course on different softwares that will be helpful to civil engineers
