P-Delta Analysis

P-delta is a geometric non-linear effect that occurs in structures that are subjected to compressive loads and lateral displacement. Under the action of compressive...

Second-Order Effects in Steel Structures

Second-order effects involve the analysis of a structure based on the deformed geometry. In other words, second-order analysis recognizes the deflection in a structure...

Free Vibration of Masts

Tall masts are used in a variety of applications such as telecommunication, radio/television broadcasting, supporting lighting fixtures on the highway, raising flags, etc....

Effects of Wind on Different Configurations of Masts

Telecommunication masts or towers are tall structures that are designed for transmission of telecommunication signals or for radio/television broadcasting. Telecom masts are usually made...

Analysis and Design of Arch Bridges

The use of arches as a structural form can be dated back to antiquity. Arch structures are unique structural forms which resists forces majorly...

Structural Stability of a Ten-Storey Braced Steel Frame

Structural stability is broadly defined as the capacity of a structure to recover equilibrium. As a topic in structural engineering, it is concerned with...

Understanding Human-Structure Interaction

Recent researches have shown that human beings interact with structural systems undergoing vibration. Initially it was thought that human body is an inert mass...

How to Offset Beams in Staad Pro (with video tutorials)

In some cases, structural members are not perfectly connected to each other along their centroidal axis. This can be as a result of structural...

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 truss members. This...

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 owners. During the...

Application of Courbon’s Theory in the 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 the method...

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 walls, gravity...

Guidelines for Tying of Reinforcement

In the construction of reinforced concrete structures, reinforcement bars must be tied together in order to hold them in place and to also facilitate...

Cost of Reinforcement Works in Nigeria

Installation of reinforcements is an important item of work in the construction of reinforced concrete structures. The cost of reinforcement works therefore significantly impacts...

Design of Shear Walls

Shear walls are structural members that provide additional lateral stiffness to a building by resisting shear, moment, and axial forces, which are produced due...

Technical Guide: Detailing and Arrangement of Beam Reinforcements on Site

Beams are horizontal structural elements used for supporting lateral loads. In conventional reinforced concrete structures, beams usually receive load from the floor slab, but...
