Quality Assurance Program


STAAD.Pro V8i (SELECTseries 4) is a suite of proprietary computer programs of Research
Engineers, a Bentley Solutions Center. Although every effort has been made to ensure the
correctness of these programs, neither REI nor Bentley Systems will accept responsibility for any
mistake, error or misrepresentation in or as a result of the usage of these programs.

Notes on Comparisons
In each verification problem, a table is used to summarize the numerical outputs from STAAD.Pro
with a reference or hand calculations. A difference column presents the percent deviation from the
reference, when a significant difference exists.
The deviation is taken as the reference value minus the value determined by STAAD.Pro, divided
by the reference value to express in percent of the reference.
In this context, "significant" is take as larger than a 1% (one percent) difference. When a difference
between 0.5% and 1% exists, then the difference is simply listed as "<1%". Otherwise, the difference
is listed as "none".
This level of significance is intended to reflect that small differences in rounding or calculation
methods do not present a realistic difference in the calculated result.

Steel Design per AISC 360-10 -
Example E-2
Objective
From the reference:

Verify that a built-up, ASTM A572 Grade 50 column with PL 1 in. × 8 in. flanges and
a PL 4 in. × 15 in. web is sufficient to carry a dead load of 70 kips and live load of 210
kips in axial compression. The column length is 15 ft and the ends are pinned in both
axes.

Refer to the reference for calculations.

Steel Design per AISC 360-10 -
Example G-6
Objective
From the reference:

Verify the available shear strength and adequacy of a W21×48 ASTM A992 beam with
end shears of 20.0 kips from dead load and 60.0 kips from live load in the weak
direction.

Refer to the reference for calculations.

Steel Design per AISC 360-10 -
Example D-2
Objective
From the reference:

Verify, by both ASD and LRFD, the tensile strength of an L4×4×1/2, ASTM A36 […].
The member carries a dead load of 20 kips and a live load of 60 kips in tension.
Calculate at what length this tension member would cease to satisfy the
recommended slenderness limit. Assume that connection limit states do not govern.

Refer to the reference for calculations.

Steel Design per AISC 360-10 -
Example F.2-2
Objective
Check an C15x33.9 channel of ASTM A36 steel which serves as a roof edge beam. The simple span is
25 ft. The nominal loads on the member are a dead load 0.23 kip/ft and a uniform live load of 0.69
kip/ft. The beam is braced at fifth points and at ends.
Refer to Example F.2-2B in the reference for calculations.

Reference
Design Examples, Version 14.0, American Institute of Steel Construction, 2011, page F-20.

Steel Design per AISC 360-10 -
Example H.1B
Objective
From the reference:

Using AISC Manual tables to determine the available compressive and flexural
strengths, determine if an ASTM A992 W14×99 has sufficient available strength to
support the axial forces and moments listed as follows, obtained from a second-order
analysis that includes P-δ effects. The unbraced length is 14 ft and the member has
pinned ends. KLx = KLy = Lb = 14.0 ft.

Refer to the reference for calculations.

Note: A static analysis is used in STAAD.Pro as the reference supplies only the resulting forces
from an assumed P-δ analysis.

Reference
Design Examples, Version 14.0, American Institute of Steel Construction, 2011, page H-4.

Objective
From the reference:

Verify the strength of a 2L 4×3-1/2×3/4 LLBB (3/8-in. separation) strut, ASTM A36,
with a length of 8 ft and pinned ends carrying an axial dead load of 20 kips and live
load of 60 kips.

Refer to the reference for calculations.

Reference
Design Examples, Version 14.0, American Institute of Steel Construction, 2011, page E-26.

Notes
STAAD.Pro does not perform design per Section E6 of the specification. It is assumed that
sufficient intermediate connectors of an appropriate type are present. It is left to the engineer to
verify the intermediate connector design.

Steel Design per AISC 360-10 -
Example F.1-3B
Objective
Verify the available flexural strength of a W18x50, ASTM A992 beam. The span is 35 ft and the
beam is braced at both ends and at the center. The dead load is 0.45 kip/ft and the live load is 0.75
kip/ft.
