STAAD PRO

STAAD or (STAAD.Pro) is a structural analysis and design computer program originally developed by Research Engineers International in Yorba Linda, CA. In late 2005, Research Engineer International was bought by Bentley Systems

STAAD.Pro is one of the most widely used structural analysis and design software. It supports several steel, concrete and timber design codes.It can make use of various forms of analysis from the traditional 1st order static analysis, 2nd order p-delta analysis, geometric non linear analysis or a buckling analysis. It can also make use of various forms of dynamic analysis from modal extraction to time history and response spectrum analysis. STAAD Pro is a comprehensive structural engineering software that addresses all aspects of structural engineering including model devolopment, verification, analyis, design and review of results. It includes advanced dynamic analysis and push over analysis for wind load and earthquake load.

STAAD.Pro is a general purpose program for performing the analysis and design of a wide variety of types of structures. The basic three activities which are to be carried out to achieve that goal - a)model generation b) the calculations to obtain the analytical results c) result verification - are allfacilitated by tools contained in the program's graphical environment.

STAAD.Pro is the choice of 47 out of 50 leading Structural Engineering firms, 46 out of 50 state DOTs and 7 out of the top 10 engineering universities.
