What is STAAD Pro, Use in Civil Engineering

STAAD’s full form is Structural Analysis and Design. STAAD Pro is one of the popular software that is used for analyzing & designing structures like – buildings, towers, bridges, industrial, transportation, and utility structures. Designs may include any building structures like tunnels, culverts, bridges, piles, and petrochemical plants; and building materials like timber, concrete, steel, cold-formed steel, and aluminum.

STAAD or STAAD.Pro was developed by Research Engineers International at Yorba Linda, CA in 1997.

To get rid of the boring & time-consuming manual procedures architectural Engineers started using automated software STAAD.Pro

What is STAAD Pro:

STAAD.Pro® is one of the most widely-used software for developing and analyzing the designs of various structures, such as petrochemical plants, tunnels, bridges, etc. STAAD.Pro® v8i, the latest version, allows civil engineering individuals to analyze structural designs in terms of factors like force, load, displacements, etc. Multisoft Virtual Academy STAAD.Pro® v8i online training builds expertise in using the software at a professional level in domains, including construction companies, government agencies, architecture firms, etc.

Participants are equipped with various software functionalities like model generation and editing; loading analysis; concrete designing etc. The STAAD.Pro® v8i software training also offers proficiency in using seismology; report generation; and steel and foundation design features. After completing the   STAAD.Pro®    v8i    training,    individuals can work as    Structure Designers, Project Managers, Building Analysts, Quality Analysts, Bridge, Designers, etc.

Learning Objectives:

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 sophisticated finite element (FEM), visualization tools, and dynamic analysis capabilities.

Some of the features that we focus on in training include:

Model Generation: Generation of an interactive menu-driven model with concurrent 3D display 2D & 3D graphics generation using rectangular or polar coordinate systems Segments of repetitive geometry used to generate complex structural models.

  • Model Verification: 2D/3D drawings on-screen and printer/plotter full 3D shapes for frames, elements Isometric, or any rotations for full 3D viewing.
  • Static Analysis: 2D/3D analysis on the basis of state-of-the-art Matrix method to handle extremely large Linear, non-linear, p-delta analysis with automatic load & stiffness correction.
  • Dynamic/Seismic Analysis: Mass modeling, frequency, and mode shape Response spectrum extraction, analysis of time history Modal damping ratio for individual models.
  • Secondary Analysis: Finite element capabilities, concrete design, steel design, and timber Forces & displacements at sections between nodes. Maximum & minimum force envelopes.
