Structural designers especially in India use STAAD software to execute the structural analysis, but for the design purpose still manual calculations and excel spread sheets are being used. It leads to cumbersome and time consuming process to obtain analysis results from STAAD Pro to design calculations, hence to automate this process an MS Excel spread sheet has been developed. The present project deals with the analysis and design of beams and columns under different end conditions. The dead load &live loads are applied and the design for beams, columns is obtained from STAAD Pro with its new features surpassed its predecessors, and compotators with its data sharing capabilities with other major software like AutoCAD. We conclude that staad pro is a very powerful tool which can save much time and is very accurate in Designs. Thus it is concluded that staad pro package is suitable for the analysis and design of beams and columns.
