If i design Concrete plates in Staad pro C.E using BS 8007,does the software check for shear directly or i have to do it manually?
Shear check is not performed in BS 8007 in STAAD.Pro CE batch mode.

Is there any technical manual demonstrating the design of plates using BS 8007,or any Ondemand video?
I want to assign Scon parameter and crack width for plate element but it does not assign,what maybe the problem?
Why do Staad pro plates deisgned for center stress Mx and My and not corner stress?because in reality the nodes which are present will be acting as a whole slab and not segmented as shown in software?
What do you mean by saying "it does not assign"? Can you attach the model?
staad file attachment
May you help me for serviceability interpretation report
what does this mean?

Here is additional piece of information which I was able to find for BS8007 implementation.
Thank you one more question,i saw demonstration on how RCDC design water tanks
1.Ultimate design state for flexure
2.crack width due to flexural design
3.Crack width due to thermal effects
4.Crack width due to drying and shrinkage
And sum up the total are required.
Does design of plates consider this approach too?
RCDC performs a more comprehensive design of water tanks, I am not an expert of BS8007 code, but I do not think that dyring shrinkage is considered here. I think using RCDC and EC2 for water tank design is a better approach than using BS8007 inside STAAD.Pro.
Yes but as for now RCDC does not read correct moments from Staad pro,the moment in RCDC is very huge while Staad pro plates moment are smaller, so i have to do it manually thats why iam trying to find the correct design using BS 8007 in Staad pro
