Non-linear Analysis of Cable Stayed Structures on Staad Pro

Non-linear analysis can be used when all of the members, elements and support springs are linear except for cables and/or preloaded...

New Textbook: Modelling, Analysis, and Design of Overhead Steel Tank Supports

This book has been written to address an area of structural design which is usually neglected by clients, architects, and home...

Application of Courbon’s Theory in Analysis of T-Beam Bridge Decks

Courbon’s theory is one of the popular classical methods of analysing slab and beam girder (T-beam) bridges. However, the results obtained from...

Analysis and design of counterfort retaining walls using Staad Pro

Retaining walls are structures used for supporting earth at different levels. There are different types of retaining walls such as cantilever retaining...

Displacement time history of a vibrating damped SDOF system

Many engineering vibration problems can be idealised as single degree of freedom systems using mass-spring-dashpot model. In civil engineering, some water tank...

Load Transfer from Slab to Beams – A Comparative Analysis

In the design of reinforced concrete structures, floor loads are usually transferred from slabs to beams, and from the beams, the loads...

Analysis of Vehicle Collision on Bridge Piers

EN 1991-1-7 discussed and gave guidance on accidental actions and their applications in the design calculations for bridge structures. It is obvious...

Effects of Temperature Difference on Cylindrical Tanks

In our last post, we were able to evaluate the effect of temperature difference on rectangular tanks. In this article, we are...

Evaluation of effects of temperature difference in storage tanks using Staad Pro

In some factories and industries, tanks are used for the storage of hot liquids which are used in production. In such scenarios,...

Modelling and Analysis of Imperfections in Portal Frames

Equivalent horizontal forces (EHF) are not strictly actions, but are forces that are applied to a frame in combination with other actions...

Comparative Design of Triangular Pile Cap with free PDF download

In our post on Structural Aspects of Pile Foundation Design, we showed how we can determine the number piles required to support...

Structural Analysis of Portal Frames Subjected to Gravity Load

Gravity actions are normally used for verification of portal frames for lateral, buckling, and torsional stability. Elastic analysis and design of portal...

Lapping of Reinforcements and Use of Rebar Couplers – Peculiarities and Differences

In reinforced concrete buildings, it is almost impossible to carry out construction without lapping reinforcements at one point or another. This...

Water Bars (Water Stops) – Uses, Types, and Applications

In reinforced concrete water retaining/excluding structures, a potential source of leakage or water ingress is the construction joint, and that is...
