Structural Modelling Overview
Techniques for member creation and loading are described in this section. Also described here are those other modelling related functions contained on the “Member” pulldown. Additional modelling related topics can be found in the preceding Graphic ...
Column and Wall Design Contents
The "Column Section Design" form can be accessed by clicking the “Column Section Design” option under the “Design” pulldown menu in the Graphic Editor. ProtaStructure can design rectangular, circular and polyline columns under uniaxial or biaxial ...
Ignorable Forces for Beam Design
The beam forces that are automatically designed for in the beam section design are Major Bending Moment, Major Shear Force & Torsion. The beam forces that are not automatically designed for (or even checked) are Axial Tension Force, Minor Axis ...
Define Wall/Column Lateral Loads
User-defined varying distributed lateral loads can be applied to the individual column and wall member. The span load applied maybe used to simulate : Soil Pressure on basement wall Hydrostatic load As an alternative to defining wind load (other than ...
Working with Steel Truss
Auto-generated steel trusses of any shape (e.g. Pratt, Warren, mono-pitched, duo-pitched truss). The trusses can be easily moved and copied to another location. Defining a New Truss Before inserting a truss, there must have supports created for ...
