4-5. Linear Cable and Advanced Cable Analysis of the Structure

Cable elements used in STAAD are very useful when dealing with cable stayed bridges, suspension bridges, cable nets and guyed poles/towers etc. However, cables are very difficult to model and analyze because of their highly non-linear traits. Cables generally resemble thin steel wires or ropes that are very flexible, often undergoing large deflections. For these reasons, a linear-static analysis is not appropriate and can lead to extremely inaccurate results. STAAD provides us option to do the cable analysis of the Structure. Both Linear and Advanced Cable Analysis of the Structure is explained in this lecture series.

6-7. Design of Cold Formed Steel Structure as per American and Indian Design Standards

In this lecture series ,  Cold-formed steel (CFS) members structures are modelled to make various types of structural arrangement. Design of these structures is done as per American AISI and Indian IS 801 Design Standards.

8. P-Δ Analysis of the Watch Tower Structure and Design as per IS 800

In structural engineering, the P-Δ or P-delta effect refers to the abrupt changes in ground shear, overturning moment, and/or the axial force distribution at the base of a sufficiently tall structure or structural component when it is subject to a critical lateral displacement. Towers are discussed in great detail. The results are compared of the model made with and without P-Delta Analysis. Design of the modelled structure is done as per Indian Steel Design Standard IS 800.
