Section Assignment for Solar Structures

For photo-voltaic structures, we think about the solar panel as the main component. However, a suitable structural frame is required to provide a stable platform on which the unit can operate. STAAD.Pro structural analysis software offers designers with a system to design their support structure. 

Solar Load Application

Load Application for Solar Structures

Solar structures are essentially placed one behind each other. Codes usually allow for the shielding effect to be considered in calculating wind loads for an optimized design. However, the user must apply their own engineering judgment as well.
