STAAD.Pro CONNECT Edition V22 Update 7

STAAD.Pro CONNECT Edition V22 Update7

Bentley Systems Incorporated is pleased to announce the availability of STAAD.Pro CONNECT Edition V22 Update 7. Perform comprehensive analysis and design for any size or type of structure faster than ever before using the new release.

STAAD.Pro CONNECT Edition V22 Update 7 – Release Notes.


The following identifies the new features and enhancements that have been added in the CONNECT Edition V22 Update 7 of STAAD.Pro. These features have been selected to allow STAAD.Pro to deliver a greater range of capabilities required by engineers around the world.

Physical Modeling Workflow

– Multiple analysis

– Define collections of load cases and combinations with differing analysis requirements in a single physical model.

– Tapered members

By defining the change in depth of a beam at the start/end the appropriate properties are automatically created and analysed as typically used in metal building frames.

– Improved Structure Wizard

Additional templates and tool to edit the script.

Analytical Modeling Workflow

– ASCE 7 – 2016 combination generation

Rules added as per the ASCE 7 publication to allow rapid combination generation based on defined load categories.

– Chinese Response Spectrum Loading

Additional dynamic load option provided for projects in China.

– Plate offset supporting P-Delta analysis Extending the range of methods supported by finite element plates specified with offsets to improve model representations.

Chinese Steel Design Workflow

– New inbuilt workflow

The Chinese Steel Design module previously provided as a standalone application SSDD, is now incorporated into the main application to provide a more seamless workflow.


The following identifies the new features and enhancements that have been added in the CONNECT Edition V11 of RCDC, which is installed with STAAD.Pro.


– Addition of Australian code – AS 3600:2018,

Columns and Walls, Footings, Beams and Slabs can now be designed in RCDC using AS 3600:2018 and output can be generated

Note: Design of Pile-cap is available in this code as "Technical Preview".

– Addition of Belgium Annex for BS EN Code.

NBN EN 1992-1-1 (ANB: 2010) (Belgium annex) has been added in RCDC. It is available for design in all the modules including water-tank structures.

– Addition of BS EN Base / Custom Code for all modules.

Users can now modify specific parameters (from base EN code) to create a \’Custom\’ annex to suit local design standards.

– Design of Tank Structures for Base EN code, Singapore Annex and Malaysian Annex

Design of tank structures is now available for the Base Euro code (BS EN 02-1-1-2004), Singapore annex (SS NA) and Malaysian Annex (MS NA)

– Factored or Unfactored Earthquake/ Wind Load (ASCE) for design using ACI code –

RCDC now allows user to define type of load for EQ and Wind from analysis as factored or Unfactored. The standard template of load combinations has load factors consistent with the choice made by the user.

– Joint check for Ductile column design using Euro Code

For columns when "Ductile Design – High" option is selected by user, now Joint check would be performed as per BS EN 1998-1-2004 code.

– Footing Module – Effect of Ground Water Table in soil pressure check and sizing for all types of footing

Effect of buoyancy due to ground water is now considered in the minimum pressure check of footing design.

STAAD Foundation Advanced

The following identifies the new features and enhancements that have been added in the CONNECT Edition V9 Update 6 of STAAD Foundation Advanced, which is installed with STAAD.Pro.

General mode and Toolkit mode

– Design of isolated footings to the 2019 edition of Canadian A23.3

– Service load checks: soil pressure, contact area, stability (sliding & overturning), uplift

– Ultimate load checks: flexure, one-way shear, development length, two-way shear, bearing

– Checking the adequacy of user-defined footing sizes

– Determination of optimum footing sizes

General mode

– Design of mat foundations to the 2019 edition of Canadian A23.3

– Creation of the mat physical model – geometry, loads, soil springs, pile springs

– Mesh generation and creation of a FE (analytical) model

– Analysis using the STAAD.Pro Analysis engine

– Soil pressure, contact area and stability check reports

– Design for flexure, creation of reinforcement zones based on moments from the FE analysis

– Design for punching shear
