This lecture presents the process of modeling a bridge using the Graphical User Interface of STAAD.Pro. It demonstrates the addition of a Dead Load case to consider the effects of self weight, shows how to add the analysis command, and concludes by performing a visual check the deflected shape due to self weight to detect any potential modeling errors.
STAAD.Pro is the structural engineering professional’s choice for steel, concrete, timber, aluminum, and cold-formed steel design of virtually any structure including bridges , culverts, petrochemical plants, tunnels, piles, and much more through its flexible modeling environment, advanced features, and fluent data collaboration.
Bentley STAAD.Pro allows structural engineers to analyze and design virtually any type of structure through its flexible modeling environment, advanced features and fluent data collaboration.
