STAAD.pro stands for Structural Analysis and Design. It is one of the software application created to help structural engineers automate their tasks, to remove the tedious and long procedures of manual method.STAAD.pro is a comprehensive and integrated finite element analysis and design offering ,including a state –of-the-art user interface ,visualization tools and international design codes. It is capable of analyzing any structure exposed to static loading, a dynamic response, soil structure interaction, wind, earthquake and moving loads.STAAD.pro is the premier FEM analysis and design tool for any type of project including towers,culverts,plants,bridges,stadiums and marine structures.
Structural analysis and design computer program originally developed by Research Engineer International Yorba Linda, CA in 1997.In late 2005, Research Engineers International was bought by Bentley systems. The commercial version, STAAD.pro, is one of the most widely used structural analysis and design software products worldwide. It supports several steel, concrete and timber design codes. It makes use of various forms of analysis from the traditional 1st order static analysis, 2nd order p-delta analysis, geometric non-linear analysis or a buckling analysis. In recent years it has become part of integrated structural analysis and design solutions mainly using an exposed API called open STAAD to access and drive the program using a Visual Basic macro system include in the application or by including open STAAD functionality in applications that themselves include suitable programmable macro systems. Additionally, STAAD.Pro has added direct links to applications such as RAM connection and STAAD.foundation to provide engineers working with those applications which handle design post processing not handled by STAAD.pro itself.
STAAD(structural analysis and design program) is a great program that helps civil engineer in analyzing and designing structural members .You can make a 3d analysis with STAAD then make the design with rc designer (an icon in the program)
This STAAD.pro course focus on the different results generated from the program, and how to read them, view them ,and finally generate the necessary reports from them.STAAD.pro training provides an overall look over STAAD.pro.It covers the steps to be followed to produce the structural analysis and design of concrete and steel.STAAD.pro course syllabus are designed according to the needs of the industry.
