Staadpro-Structure Geometry and Coordinate System
Particular structure is an assembly of components such as beams, columns, slabs, plates etc. Typically, modelling of the structure geometry consists of two steps:
-Identification and description of joints or nodes.
-Modelling of members or elements through specification of connectivity between joints.

Infiltration vs Permeability
Infiltration refers to the downward entry or movement of water into the soil surface. It is a measure of the rate at which soil is able to absorb rainfall or irrigation. It is determine by a soil characteristics including ease of entry, storage capacity, and transmission rate through the soil.
It is measure of ability of a porous material to allow fluid to pass through it. High permeability will allow fluids to move rapidly through rocks. Permeability is affected by the pressure in a rock.

Concrete vs stone, timber and steel
Why Concrete is superior to stone, timber and steel ?
- Stone, timber and steel cant be fit to any mould but concrete can fit to any mould.
- Structure made of stone, timber and steel have several joints but different element of concrete can be cast monolithically.

Why we are not constructing circular beam ?In case of beam all the stresses are at top and bottom. Circular area is maximum area at center, where we don't have any bending. To overcome stresses we need to provide steel at top and bottom. but in case of circular beam its not possible to provide steel at top and bottom.
