Bentley Institute Press, publisher of cutting-edge university textbooks
and professional reference works for the architectural, engineering, and
construction (AEC), operations, geospatial, and educational communities,
today 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. 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.
Principles of Structural Analysis – Static and Dynamic Loads is
written for a broad spectrum of readers pursuing an in-depth
understanding of structural information modeling best practices.
Students and early career structural engineers will learn how to model,
analyze, and design using STAAD.Pro, while seasoned practitioners
will benefit from detailed explanations of STAAD.Pro’s many
Said Sathia, “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.”
Principles of Structural Analysis – Static and Dynamic Loads
leverages the collective knowledge of structural experts and software
technicians across the world to help support the information
requirements of practicing engineers. By delving into the methods and
principles inherent to STAAD.Pro, it 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.
Other subjects covered include static analysis of framed structures,
finite element analysis, load generation, seismic and dynamic analysis,
steel design, and concrete design.
Like all of the titles in the Bentley Institute Press portfolio,
Principles of Structural Analysis –Static and Dynamic Loads aims to
deliver continuous learning to help readers increase their technical
know-how and improve their workflow efficiencies.

To paraphrase someone famous, "The definition of insanity is to do something the same way over and over again and expect a different result".
Humans are creatures of habit and when it comes to storage, old habits die hard.
Why do we continue to put our faith in legacy storage providers when they haven't invented anything new in decades. Sure, they re-badge their products every couple of years to make their messaging look modern, but ultimately, it's the same old stuff with a new coat of lipsti...
