Build one model! ProtaStructure enables you to model complex or straightforward concrete and steel buildings quickly and easily.

Leading Structural BIM Collaboration

Developed with BIM in mind, seamlessly communicate and refine models with other leading BIM systems, including Autodesk Revit, TeklaStructures, ArchiCAD, AllPlan, and latest data formats, including IFC, 2D/3D DXF, and SAF.


Automated Load Calculations

ProtaStructure effortlessly breaks down the vertical loads for various floor systems using advanced methods like Yield Lines and Finite Element Decomposition, with support for diverse geometry and loading scenarios, featuring color-coded visual checks for load assessments, finishes, and structural dimensions.
ProtaStructure automates Seismic, Wind and Notional Load calculations in compliance with major international codes such as EN 1991-4, EN 1998-1, ASCE07, BS6399-2, and more, alongside snow load assessments per EN1991-1-3 and TS498.
These powerful load automations, coupled with fully automated load combination generation saves you hours of valuable project time.

Powerful Interactive Load Editor

ProtaStructure streamlines structural design with its automated and precise load analysis, enhancing efficiency and accuracy.
In addition to automatically calculated loads, our interactive load editor allows you to visualize and apply any additional loads of your choice including soil pressure, point, line and area loads in any orientation.You can even import point loads from Excel for comprehensive batch case management.
ProtaStructure greatly simplifies the calculation and application of environmental loads such as snow, rain, and roof live loads.
Offers tools for evaluating soil thrust against structures, considering water table and soil profiles for both static and dynamic analysis.


Seismic Analysis and Design

ProtaStructure provides structural engineers with comprehensive tools to structural design and structural detail buildings quickly and economically to meet rigorous earthquake standards.

Global Seismic Code Support

ProtaStructure supports an extensive array of seismic codes, including IBC, UBC, EC8, and more, ensuring designs meet international standards.

Advanced Seismic Analysis Tools

ProtaStructure has smart features for seismic modeling and analysis including EQS and RSA analyses, rigid and flexible diaphragm modeling, cracked sections, storey meshing, basement two-stage analysis and more.

Global Seismic Checks

ProtaStructure performs a series of post-analysis checks including irregularities, strong column-weak beam, joint shear, non-structural member forces, wall-frame interactions, diaphragm checks and more.

Ductile Design and Detailing

ProtaStructure automates the design of structural members to meet ductility requirements, such as confinement of critical sections, automatic layout of wall end zones, capacity shear design, ductile rebar curtailment and much more.

Advanced Earthquake Engineering

ProtaStructure offers expert tools for advanced earthquake engineering requirements in your special projects.

Nonlinear Isolators

Seismic isolators can be placed at any point in the structure for various isolation scenarios. Nonlinear isolator characteristics can be factored into time-history analysis. Design outputs include storey drifts, accelerations, internal forces, and isolator displacements.

Retrofitting & Performance Assessment

Take advantage of new non-linear static and multi-mode pushover and time history analysis together with performance-based design, assessment, and retrofitting of your buildings.

Nonlinear Fiber Analysis of Sections

Column, beam and wall sections can be modelled with fiber elements using distributed plasticity and analyzed with state-of-the-art techniques to derive Moment-Curvature relationships.

Cracked and Uncracked Sections in One Analysis Run

Cracked and uncracked section properties can be simultaneously used in the same analysis for different load cases. Code modification defaults can be automatically applied to section properties.
