Design of members, cross-sections and details!
Safe and comprehensible!
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, September 20th
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.
