REI Releases Powerful Staad Structural Suite with New Foundation Design Program


Offers transparent data migration, preserving data integrity from one design phase to the next

YORBA LINDA, CA – August 26, 2003, Research Engineers International (REI), a division of netGuru, Inc. (Nasdaq: NGRU), provider of STAAD.Pro and other world class engineering software for structural design and analysis, today announced the release of its most powerful integrated structural software suite to date. The STAAD Structural Suite consists of STAAD.Pro 2003 2nd Edition, a general purpose three-dimensional (3D) structural analysis and design program, STAAD.etc, a structural toolkit consisting of 26 modularized design programs, Sectionwizard, a section property calculator and, a new and revolutionary product capable of analyzing and designing mat foundations, pile caps, slabs on grade and isolated and combined footings.

With its new open architecture environment (OpenSTAAD), each of the components in the STAAD Structural Suite is seamlessly integrated with one another allowing for transparent data migration. Engineers can now assemble and calculate structural properties for “built-up” or “free-formed” sections, bring those sections into STAAD.Pro 2003 to add to the model, perform miscellaneous structural calculations such as base plate design, ASCE 7 wind loading or design of a retaining wall in STAAD.etc based on the results from STAAD.Pro and, finally, design multiple foundation arrangements on the final structure using is the newest member of the STAAD family of products. The exact design of complicated foundations like mats or slabs, pile cap arrangement and design, generation of editable steel detailing drawings, structural drawing reports and step-by-step calculations are some of’s salient features. The program is designed to accept the foundation as an object so that complex tasks such as meshing can be handled internally.

Commenting on the release of REI’s new product line, Mr. Amrit Das, Chairman & CEO of netGuru said, “Our global initiative last year was to create an integrated suite of structural engineering software to cover all facets of a structural engineer’s typical design process. The STAAD Structural Suite is the culmination of that initiative and our engineers’ diligent work over the past year. With, engineers will be able to take their STAAD.Pro models and design multiple foundation scenarios without having to reintroduce all the loads and geometry of their original models. We believe an engineer should not have to work with numerous incompatible software to reach a solution. STAAD Structural Suite preserves the data integrity from one phase of the design process to the next. We are excited about the release of our new STAAD Structural Suite and believe that engineers around the globe will appreciate the enduring value in its seamless design capability.”
