    Innovation without limits

Advanced Structural Analysis Software

Solve the most complex design and analysis problems by adding our Advanced Analysis module to your STAAD portfolio. Complete intricate projects quicker, including:
  • Projects with large or complicated models and multiple load cases and combinations
  • Structures that have a high sensitivity to dynamic loading
  • Models that rely on nonlinear effects such as cables
  • Models requiring iterative solutions

With our advanced solver, you get the power of two solvers in one, to analyze models with over 20,000 joints. The application dynamically selects either in or out-of-core methods to optimize performance during matrix formulation.

    • Analyze gravity and lateral load
    • Analyze steady state dynamic performance
    • Create finite element meshes
    • Design and analyze structural models
    • Generate design loads and load combinations
    • Perform geometric nonlinear model analysis
    • Share structural models
    • Utilize international section profiles
  • Analyze gravity and lateral load

    • Design and analyze simple or complex structures for a wide range of loading conditions, including those induced by gravity such as dead and live loads, including skip conditions, in combination with lateral loads including wind and seismic.
  • Analyze steady state dynamic performance

    • Increase performance up to 2,000 times faster with STAAD’s advanced stiffness matrix solving application. Tackle large geometric models with multiple load cases without compromising analysis quality. Achieve top-notch performance for dynamic analysis.
  • Comply with seismic requirements

    • Design and detail seismic force-resisting systems, generating seismic loads according to the relevant building code. Consider these forces in the design of elements and, where applicable, the design of frames and the larger structural system. Enforce the ductility requirements of the selected design code in element proportioning and detailing.
  • Create finite element meshes

    • Use element generation to decompose physical elements such as slabs, mats, or walls into series of plates or solids. Efficiently generate finite element geometry for complex objects with openings. Optimize finite element analysis by choosing various plate shapes based on analysis requirements.
  • Design and analyze with finite elements

    • Complete building analysis, design, and drafting for the entire structure accurately and efficiently using our state-of-the-art finite element analysis. Reduce or eliminate the time spent waiting for results using our fast solvers.
  • Design and analyze structural models

    • Quickly model your entire structure, including decks, slabs, slab edges and openings, beams, columns, walls, braces, spread and continuous footings, and pile caps. Efficiently automate many of your time-consuming design and analysis tasks and produce practical system and component designs that are document ready.
  • Design to international design standards

    • Extend the reach of your business practice and take advantage of global design opportunities by using a wide range of international standards and specifications in our design products. Complete your designs with confidence thanks to extensive support of U.S. and international standards.
  • Generate design loads and load combinations

    • Apply code-prescribed wind and seismic loads to the structure using built-in load generators. Calculate relevant loading parameters automatically based on the structural geometry, mass, and selected building code provisions without the need for separate hand calculations. Combine these lateral load cases with gravity and other types of loads using load combination generators.
  • Perform geometric nonlinear model analysis

    • Incorporate second-order and non-linear effects resulting from significant structural displacements into your analysis results. Design flexible structures with confidence, as you can account for the additional forces from increased displacements.
  • Share structural models

    • Transfer structural model geometry and design results from one application to another and synchronize changes over time. Quickly share the structural model, drawings, and information with the entire team for review.
  • Utilize international section profiles

    • Complete your structural model using a vast array of international section profile databases, which are included at no extra charge. Take advantage of global design opportunities around the world.
