STAAD.Pro Help

GS. Where are the old manuals?

For many versions of STAAD.Pro, the help was primarily a collection of the user manuals in an online format. Though the organization has changed somewhat, all of the existing content is still available to you.

This content is included in the D.Design Codes section of the online help.

Most complete input examples, verification examples, and extended modeling examples have been collected into the Application Examples section of the help.
