Mass of a story, Center of mass, Center of Gravity

 Dear all,

 I'm using Staad.Pro for design building with Seismic Load but this Load is defined as per my country's codes.

 My concern is does Staad.Pro can caculate the Mass ,the Center of mass, center of Gravity  for each Storey?

 As my knowledge, Etabs sofware can solve this problem.

Your reply is much appreciated.

Best regards,


  • Hi

    yes of course Staad will calculate the mass as its reference to seismic base shear. I use Robot Millenium, Staad and Etabs every software calculate the mass of the structure for seismic of course there is quite difference in vertical and horizontal distribution because of methods they use compare to hand calculation
