# Analysis and Design of Reinforced Concrete Structure Creating member Start the Staad Pro.

Choose Space, set the unit to kN and meter. Click Next. Choose Open Structure Wizard and click Finish.

Tick to Prototype model, choose Frame Models as Model Type, double click on Bay Frame and fill in the blank as shown below. Length 6m (19.685 ft), Height 3m(9.843 ft), and Width 6m(19.685 ft).

## Now the structure is displayed on the screen.

Click Geometry menu (top), select Run Structure Wizard, click Prototype Models, choose Surface/Plate Models and double click on Quad Plate.

Fill in the blank as shown below. For Corners, X-B = 6m, X-C=6m, Z-C=6m and Z-D= 6m. Since the unit is in ft, then user has to convert the unit to ft. For Bias and Division, just put the number without convert, as shown below. Click Apply.

Next, click File, Merge Model with StaadPro model, and click Yes (transfer/merge the model.) , next for the Paste Prototype Model window, set Y to 1.5 meter. Click OK.

Supports Create Fixed support, and assign to all bases as shown in the figure.

To see the 3D diagram of structure, right-click mouse, select Structure Diagrams, and tick the blank as shown.

You can adjust the load scales by clicking the right-mouse, Labels, Scales.

Select all plates using Plate Cursor icon, and assign the pressure loads.

Next, we want to create new load case. Click Load Cases Details, Add, Primary, and name the title as Live 1. Click Add and Close.
