STAAD Pro is a structural analysis and design software which is used to analyze and design structures for bridges, towers, buildings, transportation, industrial and utility structures.

It offers a flexible modeling environment to the user that facilitates creating the best structure.

It provides the user with multiple design codes to choose from; the user can use the most appropriate code for the structure by the virtue of STAAD Pro training.

Being a feature-rich building design software, STAAD Pro provides a wide range of tools for the designer to choose from.

STAAD Pro provides an open architecture called Open STAAD, which is like a resource library for the STAAD professionals that provides Application Process Interface (API) and other useful resources.

Though STAAD pro is a sophisticated structural designing software, it comes with many benefits and can be easily used by a certified STAAD professional

STAAD.Pro is one of the most widely used structural analysis and design software products worldwide. It supports over 90 international steel, concrete, timber & aluminium design codes. It can make use of various forms of analysis from the traditional static analysis to more recent analysis methods like p-delta analysis, geometric non-linear analysis, Pushover analysis (Static-Non Linear Analysis) or a buckling analysis. It can also make use of various forms of dynamic analysis methods from time history analysis to response spectrum analysis. The response spectrum analysis feature is supported for both users defined spectra as well as a number of international code specified spectra.

Staad pro Course objective:

STAAD Pro course is designed to offer students and professionals all the essentials to learn and use the STAAD.Pro V8i. The enrolled candidates will learn to master the application and will be empowered to deliver high-quality products and services.

The course will cover all the steps involved in structural analysis & designing of concrete & steel. This course will introduce one to STAAD Pro's state of the art user interface, prevailing analysis and design engines with a sophisticated finite element (FEM), visualization tools, and dynamic analysis capabilities.

latest update:

STAAD Pro shows accurate results in the measurement of Shear Force and Bending Moment.

STAAD Pro does not involve any manual calculation; hence, it saves time and increases efficiency.

STAAD Pro helps the engineers in improving the structure, section, and dimensions.

STAAD Pro offers faster methods of designing the structure.

STAAD Pro is ideal for measuring a wide range of loads, such as Live load, Dead Load, Wind Load, Snow Load, Area Load, or Floor Load.

STAAD Pro is sophisticated and multi-featured structural designing software; it offers an open architecture – OpenSTAAD.

STAAD Pro is featured with the designs that use the US codes, the British codes, Euro codes, Canadian codes, Japanese codes, and nuclear codes.

STAAD Pro v8i is the latest version and has got STAAD Foundation also in it

Career opportunities:

Career in Structural Engineering is open for graduates of structural & civil engineering. Graduates from other fields can also make career in this field, but it could take longer time to get familiar with this profession. Structural engineers play the most important role in the construction and development of our cities & towns. Structural engineers can start their career as a construction designer and can further become project managers. One can seek employment in private section and public sector as well.

Professionals in Structural engineering play an important role in construction industry. They can also work as a self-employed contract engineer or as consultants. Most structural engineers work in engineering consultancies.

It is purely used by some companies for Analysizing the structure and Sometimes for Design also.

As usually it is developed by Bentley systems that too it is too cost software.

In Staad pro we will design Rcc,Steel as well ,it is not meant for only buildings ,so we can analyze and design separately water tanks and staircases, retaining walls ,steel towers etc..
