Frequently asked questions
STAAD stands for Structural Analysis and Design. STAAD.Pro is one of the most popular structural analysis and design software tools in use today. Architects and civil engineers use this software to design many types of structures, from simple culverts to entire processing facilities — and just about anything in between. A physical modeling application in the software allows you to design the elements of a structure using any construction material, from concrete columns to steel I-beams. When you place the elements in the rendered model, STAAD.Pro analyzes the projected construction to find any weaknesses, oversights, or safety concerns. The software also gives teams the ability to share design data and collaborate on joint projects.
