RE: Staad Doubts

1.      Yes. Get the Open Staad Reference Manual. There are some fairly simple VB commands that should get you what you need.

2.      Yes. You use the section (and print section forces) command. With this command, you can get forces at up to 3 intermediate points. If you have a steel beam and set the beam parameter (see table 2.1)=1, you can design the beam based on forces at 12th points.

Dear Sir,


Is there anyway I can import beam forces file to excel using excel macros.


Is there anyway I can get forces at a particular point in a beam without creating any node at that point or without doing dragging the scroll bar to that point in the beam properties window.


With my sincere regards,
