Complete Structural Engineering Solution

Addressing the increasingly complex global seismic requirements as well as the need to integrate the wide array of tools used by professional structural engineers, STAAD.Pro 2006 continues to be the world's most widely-used, customizable and user-friendly structural solutions software. STAAD.Pro 2006 is a combination of a robust 3D multi-material structural modeler with a powerful analysis and design engine capable of solving the most complex linear elastic, soil-structure interaction, dynamics and plastic analysis problems. Over 20,000 structural engineering firms from around the world have used STAAD.Pro's exhaustive design tools for steel, concrete, timber, aluminum and composite sections to design low- and high-rise buildings, petrochemical and industrial plants, towers, bridges, foundations, culverts and much more. Intelligent modeling and interoperability empower structural engineers to use powerful structural objects like floors (composite or noncomposite), slabs, joists, shear walls and bridge decks to assemble, analyze, design and connect their structure in one integrated environment. STAAD.Pro 2006 was designed to streamline the structural engineer's workflow and eliminate the loss of data incurred by using several disjointed applications to exchange information. Full design of a reinforced or post-tensioned concrete elevated slab using RAM Concept can be performed in a matter of hours. A mat foundation or pile cap arrangement can be designed and detailed automatically using the critical forces from the super structure with STAAD.foundation. A robust library of elements including truss, beam, plate, solid, cable and surface along with complex load generators for wind, snow, wave, gravity, vehicle and seismic help save engineers THOUSANDS of hours and expedite the time to actual production. The new STAAD.Pro 2006 includes an optional advanced analysis module with a full pushover analysis (performance based design) as per FEMA 356/440 and steady state analysis. It also improves the efficiency of the popular STAAD.Pro design routines by automatically calculating the unbraced length factors, reporting transfer forces for connection design and introducing a new PBEAM that allows the modeling of physical members. With enhancements to OpenSTAAD, engineers can now seamlessly integrate STAAD.Pro with MathCAD and Excel sheets eliminating the manual transfer of data. STAAD.Pro 2006 is the professional engineer's choice for an end-to-end, multi-material structural software solution.
