STAAD.Pro Advanced CONNECT Edition

Advanced Analysis, and Advanced Concreate Design software

  STAAD.Pro Advanced CONNECT Edition includes STAAD.Pro CONNECT Edition capabilities as well as what was formerly known as STAAD Advanced Analysis Plus.

STAAD.Pro Advanced CONNECT Edition option includes all of the design codes and adds additional advanced capabilities on top of the basic STAAD.Pro or STAAD.Pro Standard, with a solver that is up to 2,000 times faster and can handle geometric non-linear analysis, non-linear cable analysis, steady-state analysis, and pushover analysis to meet today’s increasingly rigorous design requirements.

  Advanced Concrete Design and Detailing.

STAAD RCDC provides a direct workflow to access for STAAD.Pro models.

Which is operated outside the STAAD.Pro's environment, but requires a model and results in data from suitable analysis.

The model should typically be formed from beams and columns (plates are currently not supported).

STAAD RCDC can be used to design the following objects: Pile Caps, Footings, Columns and walls, Beams, Slabs.

With STAAD.Pro Advanced CONNECT Edition, RCDC capabilities are following ...

  •   Interactive design & detailing
  •   Seamless integration with analysis.
  •   One-click design drawings and fabrication detailing
  •   Automated rebar labels, dimensions, and notes, as well as rebar placing drawings,
  •   Sections, plans, and details from the 3D model.
  •   Customize drawings to adhere to your company's standards.
  •   Automatically update drawings based on changes to the 3D model.

     Advanced Analysis with Advanced Solver

  1.    Memory efficient Eigen solution method like Arnoldi/Lanczos for solving large scale Eigen problems
  2.    Load dependent Ritz Vector for efficiently extracting relevant modes for fast and accurate calculation of structural responses.
  3.    Geometric Non-linear Analysis
  4.    Pushover Analysis
  5.    Steady-State Analysis
  6.    Buckling Analysis by Eigen solution with the ability to plot the buckling mode shapes 
  7.    Advanced Non-Linear Cable Analysis
  8.    Floor Response Spectrum


Licensing Configuration.
