Flexible modeling is provided by a state-of-the-art graphical environment and the design supports over 70 international codes and over 20 U.S. codes in 7 languages.
An array of advanced analysis and design features are included such as nuclear certification for 10CFR Part 50, 10CFR 21, ASME NQA-1-2000, time history and push over analysis and cable (linear and non-linear) analysis.
Efficiencies are gained through the ability to maintain and streamline current workflows withfluent data collaboration. STAAD.Pro integrates with other Bentley products such as STAAD.foundation and ProSteel andOpenSTAAD is provided for integration with third party programs.
Changes in new version
Concurrent engineering-based user environment for model development, analysis, design, visualization, and verification
Full range of analysis including static, P-delta, pushover, response spectrum, time history, cable (linear and non-linear), buckling and steel, concrete and timber design.
Optional Advanced Analysis engine.A new substantially faster solver which can provide solutions of large structures in a fraction of the time currently required by the standard STAAD engine.The Advanced Solver generally uses less disk and memory.

Pull down menus, floating tool bars, tool tip help
Quick data input through property sheets and spreadsheets Customizable structural templates for creating a model
Complete support of VBA macros for customization Supports truss and beam members, plates, solids, linear and non-linear cables, and curvilinear beams Advance automatic load generation facilities for wind, area, floor, and moving loads
Flexible zoom, pan and multiple views
Isometric and perspective views with 3D shapes
Toggle display of loads, supports, properties, joints, members, etc.
Built-in command file editor with copyand paste through clipboard
