Featured LEARN Course: Modeling Finite Elements

Users of Bentley’s STAAD.Pro software wanting to learn techniques for modeling finite elements will want to take advantage of Bentley’s training course called “Modeling Finite Elements

In this course, you will learn how to take advantage of STAAD.Pro’s graphical user interface to quickly model plates and a mesh of finite elements.

    • Ensure that loads will be transferred correctly between plates and beam members by setting the appropriate tolerance settings in STAAD.Pro.
    • Learn how to adjust the plate orientation to ensure that loads are easily modeled and that analysis results can be easily interpreted.

All of the modeling tools available in STAAD.Pro will allow you to create a realistic structural model that will accurately predict the structural behavior once the model is loaded, analyzed, and designed.
