Bentley Institute Press launches new book
Pennsylvania, August 18, 2014
Bentley Institute Press, a leading publisher of university and professional reference books, has recently announced the publication of “Principles of Structural Analysis – Static and Dynamic Loads”, the second book in a three-part series.
This compendium of information about Staad.pro – a mainstay of Bentley’s world-leading 3D structural analysis and design engineering software – bridges the gap between structural engineering concepts and their practical application to real-world challenges, a statement said.
The book is authored by Bentley Systems technical support director Krishnan Sathia, a structural engineer with more than 15 years of experience developing and applying Staad.pro, it said.
Sathia said: “I’ve written this book to help students become structural engineers and practitioners to become more proficient and productive. For instance, in addition to including the fundamentals of creating information models using Staad.pro, I’ve provided comprehensive descriptions of various methods for generating data that will save even advanced practicing engineers time and enhance their productivity.”
The book delves into the methods and principles inherent to Staad.pro and provides a complete understanding of the program. In addition, it reviews common modeling errors and methods for avoiding or overcoming them, enabling engineers to create better and more accurate models in less time. These chapters teach engineers to verify the accuracy of their input and results to ensure models best reflect real-world conditions, the statement said.
Other subjects covered include static analysis of framed structures, finite element analysis, load generation, seismic and dynamic analysis, steel design, and concrete design, it said. – TradeArabia News Service
