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?
With regards to center stresses, check an explanation provided by SKLose in this discussion: Plate Center Stresses vs. Plate Corner Stresses - RAM | STAAD Forum - RAM | STAAD - Bentley Communities
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?
And i saw another Ondemand video from Paul Dela Rosa he was adding Mx + Myx = to get design moment
And My + Myx = To get another design moment and perform design Manually.
why does Staad design plates with Mx and My only?
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
