The principle objective of this research is to analyse and design a multi-storeyed building [G + 4 (3 dimensional frame)] using STAAD Pro. The design involves load calculations and analyzing the whole structure by STAAD Pro. The design methods used in STAAD-Pro analysis are Limit State Design conforming to Indian Standard Code of Practice. STAAD.Pro features a state-of-the-art user interface, visualization tools, powerful analysis and design engines with advanced finite element and dynamic analysis capabilities. Initially we started with the analysis of simple 2 dimensional frames and manually checked the accuracy of the software with our results. The results proved to be very accurate. We analysed and designed a G + 3 storey building [2-D Frame] initially for all possible load combinations [dead, live, wind loads and seismic loads]. We considered a building at PENAMALURU SITE, in which the structure was designed for stlit+5 floors. The total site area was 1500 sq.yds. Setbacks are provided to the structure. Set back of 5m on north, 7m on east, 3m on south, 4m on west were provided. Each floor consists of 5 flats. The structure was subjected to self-weight, dead load, live load, and wind load under the load case details of STAAD.Pro. The wind load values were generated by STAAD.Pro considering the given wind intensities at different heights and strictly abiding by the specifications of IS 875. The materials were specified and cross-sections of the beam and column members were assigned. The supports at the base of the structure were also specified as fixed. The codes of practise to be followed were also specified for design purpose with other important details. Then STAAD.Pro was used to analyse the structure and design the members. In the post-processing mode, after completion of the design, we can work on the structure and study the bending moment and shear force values with the generated diagrams. We may also check the deflection of various members under the given loading combinations. The design of the building is dependent upon the minimum requirements as prescribed in the Indian Standard Codes. The minimum requirements pertaining to the structural safety of buildings are being covered by way of laying
