IS 13920:2016_Compatibility Issue

Dear Bentley System,


Please resolve our query.


While designing with IS-13920:2016 , we encountered some warning in our structure. As per our understanding , Staad.Pro CONNECT EDITION (Version:  is capable of Designing RCC Structure as per IS 13920:2016.


Our question is whether it is capable of Designing for Open Structure as per IS 13920:2016.? As per Staad there is a parameter “GLD/EUDL” which take cares the equivalent floor UDL  load in beam design to generate the Plastic enhance shear as per Clause 6.3.2 of IS 13920:2016.


We have a Pipe Rack consisting of  Steel Superstructure in Concrete Columns. We have to design the Concrete Columns & Beams as per the IS:13920-2016. How should we take care the effect of ” GLD/EUDL” Parameters in Staad Pro for these type of structure?

Whether staad will calculate the Internal all forces for generation of Plastic shear in Beam & design accordingly?

Also we have tried to put commands as per IS:13920-2016, but it is showing some warnings as below;
