Ensure that the design parameters are specified before the design commands in the input editor. If these parameters appear after the design command, the design process will not use these and will continue to use the default values. The two scenarios are explained below
Incorrect sequence of commands ( design parameters will be ignored by STAAD.Pro )
START CONCRETE DESIGN
DESIGN ELEMENT 63 67 71
CLB 0.125 MEMB 63 67 71
FC 576 MEMB 63 67 71
END CONCRETE DESIGN
Correct sequence of commands ( design parameters will be considered by STAAD.Pro )
Although the example above relates to concrete design, the same is true for ANY other design ( like steel, timber, aluminum etc. ) as well.
