STAAD-III, the world’s most powerful and popular structural
analysis and design software is in use across the globe since
1980. Now it is available in the form of STAAD.Pro which
consists of STAAD + STARDYNE +FEMkit + VisualDraw . STAAD.Pro is
a comprehensive, general purpose software for integrated
structural analysis and design.
STAAD.Pro may be utilized for analyzing and designing
practically all types of structures – buildings, bridges,
towers, transportation, industrial and utility structures.

It unifies leading-edge graphics and visualization techniques with
proven and time tested analysis and design. A live, unified database
provides seamless integration across all mission critical
application – from concept design/analysis to detail design,
simulation and visualization.
