steel joint

Steel connection design Reinvented!

The first software in the world which can design and check all steel connections and joints. Clear pass/fail checks according to the code for welded and bolted connections, footing, and anchoring.
steel joint

Any topology, any loading, in minutes!

Overall check for any connection in minutes. Stress and strain analysis, stiffness, member capacity design, buckling, and design joint resistance.
concrete

Design of members, cross-sections and details!

Time-dependent analysis with construction stages and non-linear creep for all reinforced and prestressed concrete members.
concrete

Safe and comprehensible!

All ULS and SLS checks for concrete members. Transparent assumptions and white box results allow for minimizing risks of structural defects.

Welcome to IDEA StatiCa

Engineering software dedicated to structural design and code-check of joints, cross sections, beams and other details.

IDEA StatiCa Connection Wednesdays, November 1st

Connection Wednesdays

Are you a trial user? Have you recently purchased a license? Or are you already an advanced IDEA designer and you want to learn more about IDEA StatiCa?

Then join our Wednesdays’ regular webinars, and find out more about this breakthrough technology that has changed forever the way we analyze & design steel connections!

We are organizing this series of free regular webinars on Wednesdays to inform anyone that wants to know in detail how IDEA StatiCa works, and how it can be integrated into the BIM workflows.

Structural design of steel connections and joints

IDEA StatiCa Connection designs and checks welded or bolted connections, 2D or 3D joints, anchoring or footing of all topologies. We provide clear pass / fail checks according to EC / AISC / CISC standards in a complete report with drawings. For analysis, the Unique CBFEM method based on finite elements is used. Modeling considers an elastic-plastic material model for all the elements of the joint – plates, elements, bolts and welds. Prestressed bolts and plastic behavior of the welds are also taken into account.

Analysis of stress and strain of all connections and joints. The load is applied in increments, the corresponding stress and strain is calculated and evaluated. Linear analysis of stability of the connection elements. The coefficient of critical load with the corresponding deflection shapes. Rotational and axial joint stiffness (rigid, semi-rigid and pinned) and joint characteristics – initial stiffness. Seismicity checks. Iterative calculation of design load of the joint.

Design and checks of reinforced and prestressed concrete structural members

IDEA StatiCa Concrete and Prestressing provides economic and complex design of your everyday engineering work. We use cutting-edge methods for FEM modelling and nonlinear checks for ultimate and serviceability limit states. Rheology and construction stages are considered using time dependent analysis (TDA). Checks according to Eurocode (EC2) and SIA are performed for bridges of small and medium spans, buildings, and liquid retaining structures. Always according to the latest code updates and national annexes. A wide range of possibilities in check settings covers cast-in-place, prefabricated and composite structures.

Save your time and material by using unique functionalities such as nonlinear creep, compression strut optimization, a combination of pre and post-tensioned tendons, in-plane restrain after casting of the composite slab, checks of joint in composite concrete-concrete cross-sections or M-N-kappa diagrams for Pushover analysis.

Improvements to version 8.2 – smarter document!

Dear Users,
in the new version 8.2, we improved the protocol generation options. We have a clear style of the document to which we can insert any custom text including images, edit the order of items, or disable individual items completely. We can even put into the document the formulas with the values for the report! All this can be intuitively controlled with several icons. We will gladly show you this improvement on an upcoming webinar.

IDEA StatiCa at EUROSTEEL 2017

Another September event with an attendance of IDEA StatiCa members was the Eurosteel 2017 conference held in Copenhagen, Denmark. Prof. František Wald with his keynote lecture and his students with their conference papers contributed to the academic part of the conference while our members of Sales and Support team together with EDR Medeso as a reseller in Nordic countries presented the company in the conference booth. Based on the number of discussions, IDEA StatiCa Connection met with great acclaim among the conference participants.

Testimonials

We as engineers have to know, that what we are providing is fully buildable and designable. There is no point in offering a connection to a contractor to design if that isn’t the case. IDEA StatiCa allows us to take the output from – let’s say an Advanced Steel model – and very quickly run through these options.
