STAAD.Pro

The best just got better

3D Structural Analysis and Design Software

Perform comprehensive analysis and design for any size or type of structure faster than ever before using the new STAAD.Pro CONNECT Edition. 

Simplify your BIM workflow by using a physical model in STAAD.Pro that is automatically converted into the analytical model for your structural analysis. Share synchronised models with confidence for multi-discipline team collaboration and, most importantly, deliver safe, cost-effective designs.

Because every firm has different needs, there are three flexible STAAD.Pro options:

  • STAAD.Pro – The most basic STAAD option including FEM analysis and physical modelling
  • STAAD.Pro Advanced – Adds faster, more advanced and complex analysis 
  • Structural Enterprise – The most popular structural applications in a single a cost-effective license
Pricing and Purchase

Analyse gravity and lateral load

Design and analyse simple or complex structures for a wide range of loading conditions, including those induced by gravity such as dead and live loads, including skip conditions, in combination with lateral loads including wind and seismic.

Comply with seismic requirements

Design and detail seismic force-resisting systems, generating seismic loads according to the relevant building code. Consider these forces in the design of elements and, where applicable, the design of frames and the larger structural system. Enforce the ductility requirements of the selected design code in element proportioning and detailing.

Design and analyse structural models

Design and analyse structural models

Quickly model your entire structure, including decks, slabs, slab edges and openings, beams, columns, walls, braces, spread and continuous footings, and pile caps. Efficiently automate many of your time-consuming design and analysis tasks and produce practical system and component designs that are document ready.

Design and analyse with finite elements

Complete building analysis, design, and drafting for the entire structure accurately and efficiently using our state-of-the-art finite element analysis. Reduce or eliminate the time spent waiting for results using our fast solvers.

Design beams, columns and walls

Optimise or analyse beams, columns and walls for gravity and lateral loads to quickly obtain safe and economical designs. Confidently produce designs in compliance with global design specifications and building codes.

Design cold-formed steel members

Design light gauge steel members using a comprehensive cold-formed sections library without needing to use a separate special-purpose application.

Design lateral resisting frames

Perform extensive building-code checks for seismic and wind forces on braced frames and moment frames. Quickly obtain safe and reliable designs for all of your structural projects.

Design to international standards

Extend the reach of your business practice and take advantage of global design opportunities by using a wide range of international standards and specifications in our design products. Complete your designs with confidence thanks to extensive support of international standards.

Generate design loads and load combinations

Apply code-prescribed wind and seismic loads to the structure using built-in load generators. Calculate relevant loading parameters automatically based on the structural geometry, mass, and selected building code provisions without the need for separate hand calculations. Combine these lateral load cases with gravity and other types of loads using load combination generators.

Import section shapes created in DXF

Quickly import metric or imperial custom-defined section profiles detailed in DXF drawings. Alternatively define regular shapes with simple key dimensions or pick from a range of standard libraries.

Integrate slab and foundation designs

Design slabs and foundations using specialised applications that are integrated within the master analysis model. Create design calculations and reinforcing drawings. Add the design information in BIM models by using ISM.

Integrate steel connection designs

Design structural steel connections within a single integrated environment. Transfer joint geometry, member sizes, and joint forces from the 3D analysis directly to the steel connection design application. This allows for efficient reuse of information and reduces the amount of rework required when the structure changes.

Produce section property reports

Quickly calculate section properties and easily produce detailed reports on your custom section profiles.

Produce structural design documentation

Generate structural design documents including necessary plans and elevations that are used to convey the design intent. Changes made to the 3D model are automatically updated in the documentation.

Share structural models

Transfer structural model geometry and design results from one application to another and synchronise changes over time. Quickly share the structural model, drawings, and information with the entire team for review.

Utilise international section profiles

Complete building analysis, design, and drafting for the entire structure accurately and efficiently using our state-of-the-art finite element analysis. Reduce or eliminate the time spent waiting for results using our fast solvers.
