The first steps to work with the PROTA program

first steps with prota structure

Automated building design and detailing technology

ProtaStructure is a design system designed for the design of reinforced concrete and steel structures. The program can calculate loads on structures as well as on the ground. For steel structures, it is also possible to calculate connections between building elements.


The program consists of 4 sections
Prota Structure
Prota Steel
Prota Details
Prota BIM

The trial version contains the full set of the program

Use advanced integrated features including clustered element design, 3D FEA analysis to get results fast. Standards of many countries are available in the program, including the Eurocode.

First steps in the program

In the program, the structure is created in the same way as a project is created with classic 2D design and calculation (Excel and tml) programs.

  1. Creates a 3D model with sharp main structures;
  2. Deploys loads;
  3. Corrections are made in constructions, if it is necessary after calculating the loads;
  4. Details constructions according to the Customer’s task
  5. Prepares technical documentation according to the order

Pre-made samples are available in the program, which can be used when testing the program or in the training process.
