Course Highlights

STAAD stands for Structural Analysis And Design. STAAD Pro is a structural analysis and design computer program used for steel, concrete, timber, aluminum, and cold-formed steel design of virtually any structure including culverts, petrochemical plants, tunnels, bridges, piles, etc. It is used for 3D model generation, analysis and multi-material design.

It is one of the software applications created to help structural engineers automate their tasks, to remove the tedious and long procedures of the manual methods.

Model Generation: Interactive menu-driven model generation with simultaneous 3D display 2Dand 3D graphic generation using rectangular or polar coordinate systems Segments of repetitive geometry used to generate complex structural models

Model Verification: 2D/3D drawings on screen as well as on plotter/printer Full 3D shapes for frames, elements Isometric or any rotations for full 3D viewing

Static Analysis: 2D/3D analysis based on state-of-the-art Matrix method to handle extremely large job. Linear, p-delta analysis, non-linear analysis with automatic load and stiffness correction.

Dynamic/Seismic Analysis: Mass modeling, extraction of frequency and mode shapes Response spectrum, time history analysis Modal damping ratio for individual models

Secondary Analysis: Forces and displacements at sections between nodes. Maximum and minimum force envelopes.
