Week 1 : Introduction
In this chapter we will go through :
Interface of STAAD
Introduction to various sections of STAAD software
Week 2 : Geometric modelling
In this chapter, we will learn about various methods of modelling engineering problems and the applicability of various modelling elements like beams, plates, shell elements etc. in different situations.
Week 3 : Loading (Part 1)
In this chapter, we will discuss about the most commonly applicable loading conditions (eg. Dead, live, seismic, wind loads) in the simulations perfromed in the industry and how to apply these conditions to our models.
Week 4 : Loading (Part 2)
This chapter explains about the commonly used non-typical loading conditions like moving loads, time history loading etc.
Week 5 : Specifications & Support conditions
In this chapter, we will cover different types of supporting conditions and their applications. This will include a detailed discussion about normal springs, multilinear springs, tension/ compression only springs and inclined supports.
Week 6 : Analysis and understanding the Results (Including result extraction)
This chapter includes a detailed description of reading, understanding and extracting of results for different types of design elements and using the extracted results for design of elements in spreadsheets.
Week 7 : Concrete Structure Design
This chapter includes a discussion on the design section of STAAD. It includes selection of design parameters, defining those parameters and understanding the impact of each definition in our design.
This chapter will cover modelling, analysis and design of steel structures and the differences with concrete structure analysis & design.
Week 9 : Underground structures in STAAD
Here, we will deal with a tunnel problem and see the application of STAAD in analysis and design of the tunnel section. The module will highlight the key differences of dealing with underground structures.
Week 10 : Error Handling
We will discuss the errors and warnings commonly encountered when designing a structure and the steps to resolve those errors.
Week 11 : Dynamic Analysis
This section will include a problem that involves dynamic analysis of a structure and discuss industrial problems that need such analysis.
Week 12 : Misc. items using section wizard, structure wizard etc. and Industry practice
This chapter will include a discussion of some of the in-built features to aid our modelling needs and how to use them efficiently in different situations. This is a brief sum-up of all the previous sessions.
1 . Who can take your course?
Civil Engineering students pursuing engineering, Freshers & STAAD.Pro enthusiasts
2. What is included in your course?
The course is outlined in chapters that will capture all the aspects of STAAD.pro right from understanding the interface to solving a full scale civil engineering problem.
3. What will the student gain from your course?
It will help in growing your knowledge from basic to professional stage. It will also help to get through some faster approach towards addressing a problem in STAAD.pro
4. What software skills are you teaching and how well are these tools used in the industry?
This course includes sessions on STAAD.pro software with detailed discussions about modelling to analysis to design. STAAD being one of the most widely used and professionally accepted civil engineering software, together with your engineering knowledge it shall form the backbone of your carrier in this field.
5. What is the real world application for the tools and techniques will you teach in this course?
Sessions will include practical problems (like concrete & steel structures, underground structures etc.) and their engineering solutions through this powerful software.
6. Which companies use these techniques and for what?
STAAD.pro is widely used across most of the civil engineering design firms and also for higher studied like post-graduation & MS.
7. How is your course going to help me in my path to MS or PhD?
As most of the post-graduation studies are project oriented (including practical problems and their best possible engineering solutions), STAAD.pro becomes a very helpful tool it being widely accepted across the industry and also being very user-friendly as compared to many other similar software.
8. How is this course going to help me get a job?
Almost every civil engineering firm uses STAAD.pro as its analysis and design software. Even its basic knowledge shall help you get an edge over your peer mates.
