I need Clarification about the difference of the results observed in these two models ,i have attached my two models
1.The first model i created Steel columns ,and below steel column i created a concrete column as observed on attached model ,the design results of these concrete columns are as shown on the attachment
2.The second model i created Steel columns ,and below steel column i didn't put concrete column,i designed my pedestal in RCDC ,the design results of these pedestals are as shown on the attachment
Hello Abhisek M may you help me about this scenario
Request you to also share both the RCDC files.
Then what i was asking is that,they all have same loading with same member sizes why do they give different results
Please refer attached video. Note that the property of steel members in both the case is different.
Sorry Check this Nidhi Valia, i made a mistake when uploading
Everything is similar but different design results
1.Model with Concrete Column
2742.Structure1 with column.STD
Structure1 with column-Column-1.zip
2.Model without concrete columns
7457.Structure1 without column.STD
Structure1 without column-Column-1.zip
and case 2 the model without concrete columns gives many reinforcement during design compared to case 1
I need your help to clarify ,what is the correct way of designing pedestals, in Staad Pro because the mentioned two cases gives different design results Nidhi Valia
I will provide reply in sometime.
Can you help me wo get clarity on --- Is there some purpose of modelling a bigger member size above a smaller member size. I am not sure if this is the actual case.
Once both the models are correct in all aspects, the results should match.
My structure is a Pre Engineereed Building,the column section at the bottom is very small but at the top the section is bigger,i tried to model the situation but the software is not doing accordingly,i reported this issue, and the suggestion was to model different members so at to reflect my actual site condition.
Please refer this post you will understand why i modeled that
And even if the column size is constant from bottom to the top,still the results are not the same,i beg try to investigate that when you have time you will see that
