I am designing a workshop (steel structure) in staad pro
I using a bracing into a column
I already use member specification -> release in the bracing
and i try use "tension only"
but my structure still accept press force and still fail
maybe there is someone who wants to explain the detail, I will be very helpful
Here my staad,
Gudang 5 analyzed 1.std
Most of your members are failing due to slenderness check. If you want to pass the members try increasing their size in such a way that their radius of gyration gets increased. By default 200 & 300 are the maximum slenderness limit for compression and tension members. Try to limit them within that value.
On a different note, if you want to bypass slenderness check you may use MAIN and TMAIN parameter with value 1. Please refer help file for more details.
I would also like to tell you that try to provide all the design parameters before check code command all together. Also delete extra perform analysis commands.
Thanks & regards,

I try use MAIN and TMAIN parameter with value 1, but the result of the bracing still doesn't make sense
the result from the other structure is oke now, but the bracing is still the same
Here the update staad
Gudang 5 analyzed 2.std
Main parameter is associated with compression slenderness check. So the member was subjected to compression member.
You can specify the member as tension member from Specifications>Beam> Tension.
Can we assign Tension and Release at the same time in the member?
or we have to choose one?
You need to use any one of them.
thank you for your explanation sir
adding to above , you have to use perform analysis and change command when tension only members are specified.
