STAAD stands for Structural Analysis and Design. STAAD Pro software is widely used in analyzing and designing structures – buildings, bridges, towers, transportation, industrial and utility structures. Designs can involve building structures including culverts, petrochemical plants, tunnels, bridges, piles; and building materials like steel, concrete, timber, aluminum, and cold-formed steel.
Course Objectives:
To introduce the basics of STAAD Pro Software.
To make the students to analyze and design various structural elements using STAAD Pro.
