Main Steps for Using STAAD Demo Software


Example :

Analyze the given statically Indeterminate beam , i.e. determine all reactions, draw shear and moment diagrams, and find the beam deformations (deflections and rotations)



Step 1: Define nodes


Step 2: Define elements (members)


Step 3: Define element properties



Step 4: Define supports



Step 5: Define loads



Step 6: Start the analysis
