How to medel temperature effect in RCC building using STAAD?

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Hello all,
I have to include temperature effect in a RCC building for +/- 20 degrees temperature change. I am using member elements in STAAD for modeling the building . Is it correct to apply temperature effect for axial elongation alone?.
Thanks in advance
regards
Ashraf
