Although STAAD-III has caused me headaches at times (what software =
hasn't?), I think it is generally undeserving of the beating it took =
recently on the listserver!  STAAD-III is a pretty good piece of =
software although it can be very unforgiving to some user errors (i.e. =
fatal error crashes), which is annoying.  This said, although I'm not as =
familiar with it as STAAD, I have found ETABS to be quite efficient for =
*buildings* and generally superior to STAAD in this regard, especially =
for dynamic analysis.  ETABS is just plain set up better for doing =
buildings.  For an *industrial* environment though, given only one piece =
of structural design software to use, I would choose STAAD-III over all =
others for its versatility and comprehesiveness, especially with regard =
to braced steel frames!  I'd like to hear more from others on this =
thread, especially from the smaller design offices.  Good topic!

In response to an earlier comments on STAAD3, I would be interested in=20
knowing what other programs structural engineers on the listserver have =
found=20
to be generally better to use than STAAD3 (and why).  I am particularly=20
interested in petrochemical type structures, mainly braced structural =
steel=20
construction. Thanks.
