Example Problems. Twenty-six example problems have been prepared to demonstrate how to use the various SAP2000 commands and features. The problems may help improve your understanding of the sequence for using the commands and how the commands relate to one another during the modeling process. The Problems Introduction topic identifies the problem name and structure type being modeled, the features involved in the model, and some of the key commands used to complete the model.
