About this software subscription: This Virtuoso Subscription includes a 12-month practitioner license of this software, that comes with Keys (credits) to unlock training and services.

Perform comprehensive analysis and design for any structure

STAAD is a comprehensive structural finite element analysis and design application that provides you with powerful visualization capabilities and a wide range of international design codes. Using an easy-to-use intuitive interface, engineers can automatically convert physical models into an analytical model for a more streamlined workflow while conducting structural analysis. STAAD makes it easy to integrate structural analysis into a BIM workflow and share synchronized models for multi-discipline collaboration. STAAD’s powerful analysis capabilities allow you to perform analysis on any structure exposed to static, dynamic, wind, earthquake, thermal, and moving loads.

Because every firm has different needs, there are three flexible STAAD variations: 

  • STAAD.Pro – The most basic STAAD option including FEM analysis and physical modeling
  • STAAD.Pro Advanced – Adds more advanced and complex analysis
  • Structural WorkSuite – The most popular structural applications in a single, cost-effective license
Design using any material

Design steel, concrete, timber, aluminum, and cold-formed steel structures anywhere in the world using included international design codes, regardless of which STAAD option you choose. Plus you can produce automated steel drawings directly from STAAD mode.

Save time with automation

Automatically convert your physical model into an analytical model to streamline your workflow.

Improve collaboration

Streamline multi-discipline team collaboration through broad interoperability with Bentley desktop and cloud and mobile applications like OpenBuildings Designer, AutoPIPE, Revit, and Tekla. Optimize concrete and steel BIM workflows with the full integration of physical members and surfaces. View and edit models from mobile devices.

Perform advanced analysis with confidence

STAAD undergoes the most demanding quality and testing program. Our procedures follow the requirements of 10CFR Part 50 Appendix B, 10CFR Part 21 and ASME NQA-1, which means STAAD has been approved for use on the design of nuclear power installations. STAAD offers many types of analysis ranging from finite element analysis to more complex seismic analysis.
