STAAD or (STAAD.Pro) is a structural analysis and design computer program originally developed by Research Engineers International at  Yorba Linda, CA in 1997. In late 2005, Research Engineers International was bought by  Bentley Systems.

It can make use of various forms of analysis from the traditional 1st order static analysis, 2nd order p-delta analysis, geometric non-linear analysis, Pushover analysis (Static-Non Linear Analysis) or a  buckling analysis. It can also make use of various forms of dynamic analysis from modal extraction to time history and response spectrum analysis.                                                

Now a day STAAD.Pro software is widely using 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.
