Bentley STAAD.Pro

What is Bentley STAAD.Pro?

Bentley STAAD. Pro is a 3D structural analysis and design software that allows users to perform detailed analysis and design for any size or type of structure faster than ever before. It helps users to simplify BIM workflows by using a physical model in STAAD.Pro which is automatically converted to the analytical model for structural analysis. Users can also share synchronised models with confidence for multi-discipline team collaboration. Because every firm has different needs, there are three flexible STAAD.Pro options:

  • STAAD.Pro – The most basic STAAD option including FEM analysis and physical modelling
  • STAAD.Pro Advanced – Adds faster, more advanced, and sophisticated analysis
  • Structural Enterprise – The most popular structural applications in a single cost-effective license

Few features of Bentley STAAD.Pro

The key features of Bentley STAAD.Pro are as follows:

  • Analyse gravity and lateral load
  • Comply with seismic requirements
  • Design and analyse structural models
  • Design and analyse with finite elements
  • Design cold-formed steel members
  • Design lateral resisting frames
  • Share structural models
  • Integrate slab and foundation designs
  • Integrate steel connection designs

What are the benefits of using Bentley STAAD.Pro?

Users can confidently design steel, concrete, timber, aluminium, and cold-formed steel structures anywhere in the world using over 90 included international design codes, regardless of which STAAD option. The benefits of Bentley STAAD.Pro include:
  • Automatically convert your physical model into an analytical model to streamline your workflow
  • Improve multi-discipline team collaboration through broad interoperability with Bentley desktop and cloud and mobile applications like OpenBuildings Designer, AutoPIPE, Revit, and Tekla
  • Optimise concrete and steel BIM workflows with the full integration of physical members and surfaces
  • Run many design alternatives in parallel with STAAD’s cloud services and view the results in clear, graphical side-by-side comparisons
  • Design for high-seismic regions or everyday conditions, using Finite Element analysis
  • View and edit models of any size from mobile devices
