Can you let us know the build of the program you are running? You can find the same from Help>About STAAD Pro.
It wll be shown as 20.07.xx.xx
But I think what u suggest is one way out. but isnt that something wrong in the widely accepted and used software! Like i believe staad analysis to be good unless i found this problem. not yet sure if it is just the graphical problem or implications are there in design also. didnt go that deep!!
This is only a graphical error present only in the plotting of the moment diagram in the Member Query window, to the best of our knowledge. It has since been rectified. The version of STAAD currently in distribution, called STAAD.Pro V8i (also known as 20.07.04.12), plots it correctly. You can download it from the Bentley SELECT services site.
Talking about the build currently in distribution, a new build of the program (20.07.05.13) is expected to be released this week. It has been placed on the SELECT site with a disclaimer in red indicating that it is going through the final certification process, which will hopefully be completed with a day or two.
You can download it now, or wait for a couple of days and download the certified version.
I agree! Good to talk to u baongo. well, as mentioned now, they state its just a graphical problem.
