STAAD.Pro is a comprehensive and integrated finite element analysis and design solution, including state-of-the-art user interface, visualization tools, and international design codes. Capable of analyzing any structure exposed to static loading, a dynamic response, soil-structure interaction, wind, earthquake and moving loads.

STAAD.Pro is the premier FEM analysis and design tool for any type of project including towers, culverts, plants, bridges, stadiums and marine structures. STAAD.Pro will eliminate countless man-hours required to properly load your structure by automating the forces caused by wind, earthquakes, snow, or vehicles. In addition, no matter what material you are using or what country you are designing your structure in, STAAD.Pro can easily accommodate your design and loading requirements, including US, European (including the Eurocodes), Nordic, Indian, and Asian codes; even special codes like AASHTO, ASCE, IBC, and the US aluminum code can be catered to.

With an unparalleled quality assurance program, open architecture for customization, and a 25-year track record including such project as the MCI Stadium in Washington DC, Wimbeldon Court No. 1 in Europe, and the tallest transmission tower in Asia, STAAD.Pro is the perfect workhorse for your design firm.
