  1. Understand structural modeling techniques
  2. Define material constants and section properties
  3. Create and assign specifications and supports
  4. Create and assign loads
  5. Perform analyses and create reports
This class focuses on the core concepts and available tools that the majority of users will need to work with Bentley STAAD.Pro V8i.

Major Instructional Areas:

  1. Basics of structural analysis.
  2. Different steps involved in structural modeling.
  3. To create and assign support conditions, properties, materials, and loads.
  4. To assign the specifications.
  5. Analyzing the structural geometry.
  6. To create the analysis report.
Evaluation:There will be one exam that every trainee/student must pass with at least 70% to get a certificate of completion from TIET.

Suggested Learning Approach

In this course, you will study individually or within a group. As you work on the course deliverables, you will be encouraged to share ideas with your peers and instructor, work collaboratively on projects and team assignments, raise critical questions, and provide constructive feedback.
