In staad pro CE, in analytical modeler, when we add new node/s, the existing member is divided into segments, and the program takes length/effective length of that member as part, not takes as a whole member length about its major or minor axis accordingly, so my suggestion is that, 1-kindly add the features that program automatically take the length of member (beams and columns)as per its division on major or minor axis accordingly...... 2- like steel structure, the effective length of beams and columns should be automated in RCC structure 3-Also in steel structure design effective length factor Ky and Kz is to be provided manually after confirming moment release or restrained, translation is release or restrained, and also the major and minor axis, this manual efforts is so applied to each and every member and that is time consuming, error prone and tedious, so kindly add that feature.
