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.

Staad uses two types of coordinate systems to define the structure geometry and loading pattern. 

-Global coordinate system

-Local coordinate system
