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 Webinar, November 22th

Steel BIM – Advanced approach to structural steel design using Tekla Structures, ConSteel and IDEA StatiCa

How often have you faced a situation where you were dealing with a complex project topology, difficult steel connections, unconventional structural stability situation or something else not covered by the books? Join this partner webinar of IDEA StatiCa and ConSteel to find out about steel BIM workflows for structural engineers that break the limits of standard projects.

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.

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.
