Capabilities

Design and analyze simple or complex structures for a wide range of loading conditions, including those induced by gravity such as dead and live loads, including skip conditions, in combination with lateral loads including wind and seismic.

Analyze machine block foundation for dynamic loading. Leverage wizard-based input for faster FEA solids model creation, including rotating and reciprocating machines, various loading, and soil spring options. Perform in-depth analysis review using dynamic graphs and detailed formulae in reports.

Design and detail seismic force-resisting systems, generating seismic loads according to the relevant building code. Consider these forces in the design of elements and, where applicable, the design of frames and the larger structural system. Enforce the ductility requirements of the selected design code in element proportioning and detailing.

Increase performance up to 2,000 times faster with STAAD’s advanced stiffness matrix solving application. Tackle large geometric models with multiple load cases without compromising analysis quality. Achieve top-notch performance for dynamic analysis.

Calculate and design concrete slab/column connections for punching shear, including the effects of unbalanced joint moments.

Design a wide variety of foundations, from simple spread footings to complicated mats and specialized machinery pads. Complete your designs with confidence thanks to extensive support of international standards.

Produce rebar placing drawings, including sections, plans, details, bar bending schedules, material take-offs and beam/column/footing schedules, all based on the 3D model. All schedules and drawings can be customized to adhere to your company’s standards for concrete projects.

Apply code-prescribed wind and seismic loads to the structure using built-in load generators. Calculate relevant loading parameters automatically based on the structural geometry, mass, and selected building code provisions without the need for separate hand calculations. Combine these lateral load cases with gravity and other types of loads using load combination generators.

Generate structural design documents including necessary plans and elevations that are used to convey the design intent. Changes made to the 3D model are automatically updated in the documentation.

Produce detailed 2D drawings directly from design results established in the structural model. Customize the style and format of the drawings using settings offered within the software.
