About Staad Pro V8i

Staad Pro is a structural analysis and design software, developed by Research Engineers International in 1977 and later acquired by Bentley Systems in 2005.

Staad Pro is widely used in structural analysis and design, supporting a total of 90 international steel, timber, concrete, and other design codes.

In this software, users can perform both design and analysis of various structural elements such as beams, columns, frames, slabs, and footings.

In staad pro you can import models i.e., you can make module in other software's like AutoCAD, Revit structures and then those models can be imported to the staad pro v8i software and can analyze and design the structural element.

We have another software for the foundations i.e., Staad Foundation Software used to design and analysis of the foundation loads like(Wind load etc.),and that software also included in the same version of staad prov8i application.

Staad pro v8i application is one of the best application to do design and to analyze the structures and at last this is software is very very useful for the Civil Engineering students to analyze and design the structural elements.

Features of Staad Pro V8i

  • Create and edit models using graphical or text-based methods.
  • Define loads and load combinations.
  • Assign properties and supports.
  • Check for errors and warnings before analysis.

Analysis/Design Mode:

  • Perform linear or nonlinear analysis of models.
  • Design steel or concrete members according to various codes and standards.
  • Optimize designs for cost or weight efficiency.

Post-Analysis Mode:

  • View and interpret analysis results.
  • Use tools like tables, graphs, diagrams, reports, and animations to analyze the results.

Steel Design Mode:

  • Design steel connections using RAM Connection or other compatible third-party applications.

Concrete Design Mode:

  • Design concrete slabs using Advanced Slab Design or other compatible third-party applications.

Earthquake Mode:

  • Conduct seismic analysis of models using different methods and criteria.
