GSA Export: SAP2000 Keywords


Introduction

GSA exports basic data to a SAP2000 data file. All data should be checked carefully asthere are no direct equivalent features in SAP2000 to some of the GSA features. For exampleGrid loads cannot be exported directly to SAP2000. These loads must first be expanded to beamloads.

Refer to the SAP2000 documentation for details of records written.
