Self Weight
STAAD pro attempts to predict Self weight of the Structure. However for This one has write
SELFWEIGHT Y -1
If Self weight computed is more STAAD Pro will Show Message Similar as below

*WARNING- APPLIED SELFWEIGHT IS MORE THAN TOTAL WEIGHT OF ALL STRUCTURAL ELEMENTS IN LOAD CASE 1 ALONG Y.
THIS COULD BE DUE TO SELFWEIGHT APPLIED TO SPECIFIC LIST OF MEMBERS/PLATES/SOLIDS/SURFACES.
TOTAL UNFACTORED WEIGHT OF THE STRUCTURE = 1438.436 KN
TOTAL UNFACTORED WEIGHT OF THE STRUCTURE APPLIED = 2216.322 KN
If the Factor is less than or More Than 1, STAAD pro will not compare Expected Self weight with
assigned Self weight.

When a Uniformly Distributed load is applied beyond a member Length, STAAD Pro gives warning and
applied it internally to upto the length of Member
If a Concentrated Load is applied beyond a Member Length, STAAD Pro triggers a Warning and applies the
Same at End of the Member.
Note That STAAD pro Applying the Load along the Shear Centre for Bending Analysis, Hence for a Section
Such as C actual effect of Torsion will not be captured. For such Section, one should always specify d2
distance.
Page 7 of 87 by SAROJ BISWAS

Now See the Effect of Applying following load on the Frame as Concentrated Member Load and Joint Load.

Therefore, the Load on the column should be entered as Nodal Load/Joint load. Or if the Member is offset
to the face of the column, the load will be automatically applied to face of the column.
A joint load can be applied in Global Direction only. If the Load is in some other direction, the Load should
be resolved in the global directions and then applied.
A curved member of STAAD can take only UDL. If Floor Load is to be applied, it should be broken in small
pieces of Short Straight Lengths.

After Deciding the coordinates, copying from excel, click Geometry, cancel Snap/Node Beam Dialoge we,
Node Coordinate Dialog will be seen, need to past the node as follow
Page 8 of 87 by SAROJ BISWAS

The Following diagram will appear on pasting , where we need to map the coordinated to X, Y, Z Global
Mapping will appear, double click on each of the Row in Top data area, and Map them to X, Y, Z.
Following Nodes for Curved beam will be displayed
Page 9 of 87 by SAROJ BISWAS

Now Go to Geometry
Run Structure Wizard ,choose Frame Model from Drop down,Double click The Bay Frame, fill as follow,
apply, Click on Transfer Icon, chose appropriate coordinate, to create the Structure as Follow

Now You May Load it, defining floor Group, The Curved Beam will be loaded as below
Page 10 of 87 by SAROJ BISWAS

## The other way to model a curved beam is using radial grid

Click Grid Icon, Click Create Snap/Node Beam Dialogue, Choose Radial from Drop Down, fill appropriately ,
such as shown below
Page 11 of 87 by SAROJ BISWAS

Now draw the curved beam as segment of straight member, using Snap Node beam.

## Linearly varying Load on different Segments

Suppose, a Beam or Column has many segment, as it is loaded with linearly varying load, Apply a
Hydrostatic load on the member, then break the Member. Suppose the Selected beam has Load varying
from 0 to 100 KN/m from one end to another end, Selection these member, join them, apply Hydrostatic
or Linearly varying member load , then add node by Insert Node command, to member. Note that
Creating the Member by intersection may not be able to break load appropriately
Page 12 of 87 by SAROJ BISWAS

There is nothing fundamentally wrong having empty load case. STAAD pro Generates message, because 0

.
occupies lots of Memory space of the CPU

Double click the Member will pop the dialogue box shown. Chose appropriate load case for adding or
Page 13 of 87 by SAROJ BISWAS

## The Set NL Command.

This command specify number of primary load cases which by Default 30. If Primary load cases exceeds
30, one should tell STAAD pro , in the beginning itself, just below input width.

## Overturning Moment due to Gravity load.

Consider the Model below

## Floor Load Generation on Floor Plan Having Re-entrant

Corners.
Staad pro Load generation works best when in Floor Plan having no Re-Entrant corners for Floor Load generation
using X Range Y Range-Z Range . To avoid the Problem of Floor Load Generation, it is better to define Floor Groups
not having Re-Entrant Corner. For The Structure Shown below it is better to define two floor Group. The Selected
Part a Group Group1, Then Reaming part as Group2
Page 17 of 87 by SAROJ BISWAS

Page 18 of 87 by SAROJ BISWAS

## For No Load Generation on Bracing Member on Horizontal

Frame
Simply Do not include these members while Defining Floor Group.

## Floor Load Generation on Inclined Plane.

It is recommended to include. GY inclined as Shown. However Non inclusion does not affect.

When the Inclined plane have nodes at different elevation, The way is to add Plate with very small
thickness and E=1/100th of the that of Material with Zero Density, and apply pressure load, so that the
plate does not contribution to the Structure becomes insignificant and the plate acts as a medium of load
transfer only.

## Difference between Member Weight, Joint Weight etc to

Weight is for Equivalent Static Seismic Load where as load is for all other types of load including Response
Spectrum /Time History type of Seismic Load.

## Meaning of Pre-Stress and Post Stress in STAAD

Pre-stress- When Post Tensioning force of the Member is transmitted to the structure.
Post Stress- When Post Tensioning force of the Member is NOT also transmitted to the structure.
In industry it is defined opposite. Consider the Example of STAAD Reference

The Pre-stressing force available for STAAD is only about local Z axis only for Frame members. The Default Tendon of
a member when ES, EM, EE are defined is parabolic. To define a linearly varying eccentricity, for example such as

Page 25 of 87 by SAROJ BISWAS

Selected plates will be listed. Click Done. Fill as required similar to following figure

On clicking Add, Staad pro will internally interpolate the Pressure on various plate.

## Applying Partial load on Plates

It can be done as below.
Page 26 of 87 by SAROJ BISWAS

It must be ensured that co-efficient of thermal expansion must be defined in the same unit as being used.
For Meter KN unit Alpha will be in oC. In Staad,
The Temperature Parameters are
1. Temperate that causes Axial Elongation of Shortening- parameter f1
2. Temperature that causes bending- parameter f2.
The parameter f1 and f2 can be derived as below.
Let us consider, A= Ambient Temperature
B=Temperature of Top fibre
C=Temperature of Bottom Fibre
Then f1=(B+C)/2-A i.e. Average temperature- Ambient Temperature
f2=B-C i.e. Temp difference Across the Member.
Will Applying Load, start and end of Member must be taken care of to develop desired Tension Or
Compression fibre due to differential load.

Suppose we need to generate a wind load case for the building as shown below
Go to wind Definition, click Add. The Dialogue shown on Left will pop up

These type of custom load cases is handy, when we need to define Load variation with height such as for
Multi-storeyed buildings. The Exposure factored can be made as 1.0(Programme assumed it to be1.0 if not
supplied) Or may be used to manage solidity factor Or Height Factor. Exposure Factor is assigned to view.
Now we may go Load Case and Make a Wind load case as below. Click Add, then Wind Load in Pop will give
the Screen as below. Factor can be altered to match Wind Pressure net Co-efficient on a wall
Page 31 of 87 by SAROJ BISWAS

Using X-Range, Y Range or Z Range , we can instruct STAAD to Look for Windward, or Leeward face within
this range. These will enhance its performance during load generation. One needs to clearly understand
Page 32 of 87 by SAROJ BISWAS

## Below is an Example how Windward or Lee Ward face could be adjusted.

For Load generation, the Area has be bounded on all four side, except for Support side.
For Open Structure, the check box for open should be checked so that loads are generated on subsequent
member.
Shielding effect is not yet developed by the programmers of STAAD. However, using X Range, Y Range , Z
Range, Shielding effects can be simulated.
Non Intersecting member could cause problem such as below.
If Bracing are non load carrying member, then load could be applied, by Making group excluding the
bracings.

Comparing the Results will show variation from the Manual Calculation form above. Instead It is
suggested that DEC be Kept Zero, as the Software includes Natural Torsion in Analysis. The Amplification
factor can be for the Natural torsion be added to ACC as below
Natural Eccentricity Computed=2 meter. Amplified Torsion will be 1.5x2=3m
Software includes Natural Eccentricity. Therefore,
Remaining Eccentricity=1m
Accidental Eccentricity=0.8 m
Therefore Take ACC=(1+0.8)/16=0.1125 for Adding Amplification to Natural torsion.

## DYNAMIC ANALYSIS OF BUILDING FRAME

Response Spectrum Method
Response Spectrum is a plot of Time Period Vs Acceleration (or Response e.g. Velocity or Displacement).
Dynamic Response Spectrum Method is discussed here. For These we Need to understand the Eigen Value
Solution for Single Degree Freedom System, as in Response Spectrum method a Building is assumed to
oscillate in the form of SDOF system. We shall consider Dynamic Analysis by RS method for a simple Frame.
Let us Discuss the Frame Below an 36.375 KN/m

63.422KN/m

The Floor to Floor height are 3.5 Meter. The Beams are of 250mmx400mm.Columns are of 250x350 mm.
Concrete M20.Bay Spacing is 5 meter. Seismic Weight of the Building is 2260 KN. The Mass matrix would
look like
M1 0 0 0 634.22 0 0 0
M= 0 M2 0 0 = 0 634.22 0 0
0 0 M3 0 0 0 634.22 0
0 0 0 M4 0 0 0 363.75
Page 57 of 87 by SAROJ BISWAS

K=12EI/L3=11880.78 KN/m

## K1+K2 -K2 0 0 71284.72 -3564.36 0 0

K= 0 K2+K3 -K3 0 = 0 71284.72 -3564.36 0
0 -K3 K3+K4 -K4 0 -3564.36 71284.72 -3564.36
0 0 -K4 K4 0 0 0 3564.36

|K-w2 M| =0 will give us four Circular natural Frequencies and Time Period to 4 Different mode of
oscillation of the structure.
Will get Time Period T1=0.70 secs T2= 0.25Secs T3=0.16 Secs and T4=0.14 secs
We have W1=W2=W3=632.22KN, W4=363.75KN
Determination of Modal Mass of the 4 Modes of Vibration will lead
M1=2036 KN, M2=182 KN M3=37 KN M4= 4.6 KN corresponding to Mode1, Mode2. Mode3 and
Mode 4 respectively.
Since M=634.22+634.22+643.22+363.75=2260 KN.
The Modal Contribution of each Mode shall be
For Mode1 2036/2260 90.09 %
For Mode2 182/2260 8.05 %

Note that STAAD yields only 66.93 KN of base shear as against computed 80.7 KN. This is because in the
above example the Shear Deformation of the members has not been considered where as STAAD takes both
Flexural and Shear deformation for Stiffness Matrix formulation. Also is the example, the assumption is
beams are infinity rigid in STAAD although beam rigidity has been increased but increasing it to much
higher value results in computational error explained later.
Note the Participation factor in Various mode Vs Computed manually.

We Need to supply both Cut off Frequency. The Cut off Frequency of the above Example has been give as
16 as the STAAD is a analysis RS in Three Dimension and for each storey in Plane Frame will lead 1
Mode and Three dimensional Analysis for Mode in XZ diaphragm will have Lateral Displacement in X
Direction, Lateral Displacement in Y Direction, and A Tensional Displacement. So minimum cut off mode
Suggested is 4 Storey X 3 Direction= 12 .

Even if Cut off Mode Shape is provided, STAAD will calculates Modes up to 108 Hz . One can state cut off
frequency similar to cut of mode, if mode beyond 108 cps in needed as below for say up to 500 Hz.

STAAD will by default Calculate Missing mass correction for up to 33 Hz for IS 1893 -2002 if Missing
mass Correction is requested without specifying the ZPA.

Note that STAAD Pro uses Response Spectra for IS 1893-2002 which is inbuilt in STAAD Pro. Different
code provides data for Response Spectrum in Different manner. In the Time Period Vs Acceleration data,
the Acceleration Ordinate is sometime scaled dividing by g(9.81 m/s 2Or 32.22 ft/s2). These are called
Normalized data. The Spectral data for IS 1893 , if generated by STAAD Program, is already multiplied by
9.81 m/. Hence ACC scale is not to be multiplied by 9.81 m/s2.It value supplied should be 1.0.

The Value followed by a Specified Direction e.g. in . SPECTRUM CQC 1893 X 0.024 ACC SCALE 1
DAMP 0.05 MIS 0 X=0.024 is the amount of actual force out of total earthquake force to be applied
for analysis i.e. for this Example Z/2.I/R=0.24/2*1/5=0.024. After obtaining Modal Time Period, the
Spectral ordinate for respective corresponding to each Time period is taken from the Spectral plot to arrive
at a base shear applying different method such as square root ,CQC etc.

The Bold values in the table justifies that we are able to capture the Maximum forces in all the Direction

Composite Damping
Many Instances Building has part in Concrete ,apart in Steel. The question is that what should be Time
Period for Static Earthquake computation. The Next question comes is that what should be Damping used
In ELF Method and Response Spectrum method.
Page 66 of 87 by SAROJ BISWAS

The above two dimensional frame is such an example. First the Composite damping be arrived using
CDAMP in response spectrum. The same Damping be used for ELF method( Equivalent Lateral Force using
Static Earthquake Method). The Time period may be taken as that of concrete as Time Period formulae for
concrete results in shorter Time Period, and the Seismic forces arrived as such would be more conservative.
However, a weighted average time Period may be taken.
The Following Inputs in STAAD may be used for the above Frame.

## Time History Method.

The Response Spectra for a Place is obtained by Subjecting a SDOF system to Ground Motion Time
History. Time History is plot of Time Vs Acceleration. Usually , code suggest that usually 7 such Time History
of Seven Different Earthquake be used for arriving a Response Spectrum for a place. Sometimes, Ground
Motion Time History may be supplied for Design of a Structure. The Example below considers a
approximately compatible Time History of BHUJ Earthquake
The Time History Graph is also shown

STIFNESS WARNINGS
STAAD Pro works on the basis of Global Stiffness Matrix. For the Plane Frame Beam Shown Below, with four Degree
of Freedom, allowed, a Global Stiffness Matrix will be as below.
Page 77 of 87 by SAROJ BISWAS

How does a Stiffness Matrix arrived at, by allowing unit translation and Rotation along or about the axes available i.e
available degree of Freedom(d.o.f).

When a Joint has No Member to take rotation or Translation, it will give Zero Stiffness Warning, For
Example for the Plane Frame Below , the It will Give warning similar as below
*WARNING- ZERO STIFFNESS IN DIRECTION 6 AT JOINT 7 EQN.NO. 12
LOADS APPLIED OR DISTRIBUTED HERE FROM ELEMENTS WILL BE IGNORED.
THIS MAY BE DUE TO ALL MEMBERS AT THIS JOINT BEING RELEASED OR
EFFECTIVELY RELEASED IN THIS DIRECTION.
Page 78 of 87 by SAROJ BISWAS

Removal of Truss Spec from Any one of the Above Three Member will allow a Rotational Freedom, the warning will disappear.
In The Figure Below, Insertion of Joint within Truss Member will cause warning as follow

## *WARNING- ZERO STIFFNESS IN DIRECTION 2 AT JOINT 10 EQN.NO. 17

Page 79 of 87 by SAROJ BISWAS

## LOADS APPLIED OR DISTRIBUTED HERE FROM ELEMENTS WILL BE IGNORED.

THIS MAY BE DUE TO ALL MEMBERS AT THIS JOINT BEING RELEASED OR
EFFECTIVELY RELEASED IN THIS DIRECTION.
*WARNING- ZERO STIFFNESS IN DIRECTION 6 AT JOINT 10 EQN.NO. 18

Making Either Member 7 OR 12 as Axial- Flexural Member will make a Path for Translation along Y and Rotation about Z Axis(
Since its a Plane Frame in X Y Plane, hence Translation along Z is not required and Rotation about X and Y is not required),The
Warnings will Disappear.
Defining the Member as Space Frame will cause Zero Stiffness in 5 Directions. Since Both Member 7 and 8 are Axial Member,
Hence Cannot Translate in Z Direction, Cannot Translate in Y Direction and Cannot rotate in
About X, Y, Z Direction. Since Axial Member, it can Move around X Direction.

The above warning may also appear when member releases or element releases deprive the structure of stiffness at associated
node along global translation or rotational direction. For the Figure 3 shown for a Plane Frame, beam 7 and 12 are released at
Node 10,the Warning appears as follow

## *WARNING- ZERO STIFFNESS IN DIRECTION 6 AT JOINT 10 EQN.NO. 18

LOADS APPLIED OR DISTRIBUTED HERE FROM ELEMENTS WILL BE IGNORED.
THIS MAY BE DUE TO ALL MEMBERS AT THIS JOINT BEING RELEASED OR
EFFECTIVELY RELEASED IN THIS DIRECTION.
STAAD treats these as warning, not Error as , if there is no force applied at or along the degree of Freeddom, the point may not
be a trouble spot, as they may not necessarily be detrimental to proper transfer of load, from the Structure to Foundation,
which is basic requirement for Stability of a Structure.

What could be the use of Zero Stiffness warning? It could an indication of absence of Load path to foundation, causing
instability in the structure.
A duplicate Node Number (say node 13 and 14 have same coordinates) causes Message as Follow

## **WARNING- JOINT NO. 14 NOT CONNECTED. OK, IF PART OF MASTER/SLAVE.

**WARNING- THIS STRUCTURE IS DISJOINTED. IGNORE IF
**MASTER/SLAVE OR IF UNCONNECTED JOINTS.
Page 80 of 87 by SAROJ BISWAS

STABILITY ERROR
Consider the Plane Frame Truss shown in the Figure 4. Although all of the Nodes creates stiffness warning, the Load 10 KN is
able to find path to reach the support thru the inclined member, as the inclined members axial stiffness supports vertical load ,
which is transferred to this member as shear force for the Truss as a whole.

## *WARNING- ZERO STIFFNESS IN DIRECTION 6 AT JOINT 1 EQN.NO. 3

LOADS APPLIED OR DISTRIBUTED HERE FROM ELEMENTS WILL BE IGNORED.
THIS MAY BE DUE TO ALL MEMBERS AT THIS JOINT BEING RELEASED OR
EFFECTIVELY RELEASED IN THIS DIRECTION.

The alignment of the Members does not remain as before, the axial force from vertical member cannot
find any path( Thru Force Resolution into component, thus thru diagonal members) to the Support. If the
members were Axial Flexural, than Flexural Shear would have taken care of the load transfer.
One way to avoid these instability, to partially release Moment of the members at ends.

All warning messages and stability error messages disappear. However we must be careful about using this
method to remove error and warnings as structure may be stable in the Programme, but is not actually.
We must be careful about support releases as well, a Plane Frame with pinned support analysed as space
frame, we generate following error messages

## Now consider the Plane Frame Portal.

While increasing the Stiffness of shaded part 1 0 times , generates no warning, while increasing it by 100
times, generate warning as below
** WARNING ** A STIFF MATERIAL WITH 1.086E+01 TIMES THE STIFFNESS OF STEEL
Page 83 of 87 by SAROJ BISWAS

Which is some times done to simulate rigidity of beam column junctions in RCC, which is OK

Increasing Stiffness of Shaded part by 100,000, 000 times causes Error Messages for all the 6 Degree of
Freedom for the Joints under consideration.
This is due to numerical instability in matrix decomposition, at joint one of the Term becomes, Term= 1/(1-
F), where F= EI1/(EI1+EI2), resulting F=1, Term =1/(1-1)=1/0.
These Types of Error may also results from the mistakes done in unit , say same Numerical value of one
beam Witten as MMS Newton as 1000, an other beam in M KN witten as 10,000( which actually 10, 000
mm). Also may arise when very stiff properties are Assigned to member connecting to a another
member( Flexible Member).
