` 699/-


Structure Modeling, Assigning Material Constants,
Assigning Cross-Section Properties, Assigning Loads,
Analyzing Structure, Viewing Results, Creating Reports



Coverage of all Important Concepts: The textbook

consists of 7 chapters covering basic as well as
advanced concepts of STAAD.Pro V8i such as
creating 2D and 3D models, assigning different
loads, running analysis, viewing results, and
creating reports using real-world examples. The
text is supported by tables, images, and screen
captures to make various concepts easily

Examples: The author has used about 33 real-world civil

engineering examples in support of the concepts.

Tips and Notes: Additional information is provided to the users in

the form of tips and notes.

Learning Objectives: The first page of every chapter summarizes the

topics that are covered in the chapter.

Self-Evaluation Test and Review Questions: Every chapter ends with SelfEvaluation test so that the users can access their knowledge of the chapter. The
answers to the Self-Evaluation Tests are given at the end of the chapter. Also, the
Review Questions are given at the end of each chapter and they can be easily used by
the Instructors and test questions.


Prof. Sham Tickoo is professor of Manufacturing Engineering at Purdue University Calumet, USA where he has
taught design, drafting, CAD, and other engineering courses for over nineteen years. Before joining Purdue
University, Prof. Tickoo has worked as a machinist, quality control engineer, design engineer, engineering consultant,
and software developer. He has received a US patent for his invention Self Adjusting Cargo Organizer for Vehicles.


Learning Bentley STAAD.Pro V8i for Structural Analysis textbook introduces the readers to one of the worlds leading structural
analysis software, STAAD.Pro V8i. This software is specifically designed to analyze different types of structures for different loadings. In
this textbook, the author emphasizes on the tools, options, and functions that allow users to create, analyze, and export complex
analysis results easily and effectively. Furthermore, the chapters in this textbook are arranged in a pedagogical sequence that makes it
very effective in learning the features and capabilities of the software.
