SOFTWARE COVERED

STAAD Pro Connect Edition. STAAD Foundation

STAAD Pro is a versatile software used to perform comprehensive analysis and design of any type of structure. The software works on the basis of Finite Element Method and it includes various international design codes. For industrial structures, Its capabilities includes performing extensive building codes checks for seismic and wind forces on braced and moment frames and obtain quick, safe and reliable design for all structural projects. The software also has a wide library of international profiles and sections creating an advantage of choosing various sections in a design that is available in market.  STAAD also has a foundation design software called STAAD foundation used to efficiently design substructure using multiple design codes. The integration of this software with STAAD Pro gives more flexibility to directly import forces for further analysis.
