    STAAD.Pro Advanced

    Unparalleled analysis performance

Advanced Structural Analysis Software

Solve the most complex design and analysis problems faster than ever before with STAAD.Pro Advanced CONNECT Edition. It’s the most comprehensive version of STAAD.Pro and up to 100 times faster than STAAD.Pro with its advanced solver. Tackle projects of any scale and analyze simple to complex models with over 20,000 nodes at optimum speed. Design under any static or dynamic loading conditions, meeting the highest seismic building standards. Complete intricate projects quicker, including large or complicated models with multiple load cases and combinations. Quickly perform Eigen, Ritz, Nonlinear, P-Delta analysis, thermal loading, and more. 

In addition to all of the capabilities included in the standard STAAD.Pro, this advanced option offers state-of-the-art and more complex analysis such as:

  • Geometric Non-linear 
  • Steady State  
  • Buckling 
  • Cable 
  • Pushover 
  • Floor Spectrum
Capabilities
  • 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.
  • 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 to international 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 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.
  • Import section shapes created in DXF

    • Quickly import metric or imperial custom-defined section profiles detailed in DXF drawings. Alternatively define regular shapes with simple key dimensions or pick from a range of standard libraries.
  • Perform geometric nonlinear 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.
  • Produce section property reports

    • Quickly calculate section properties and easily produce detailed reports on your custom section profiles.
  • 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.
