IDEA StatiCa Blog
IDEA StatiCa has been used in The Thames Tideway Tunnel – the biggest infrastructure project ever undertaken by the UK water industry. The 25 kilometres tunnel will run under Thames river and is due for completion in 2024, involving 24 construction sites in London.
Pawel Piechnik, Structural Product Line Manager at Autodesk, took a very interesting look on Autodesk Revit blog into the bright future of structural analysis. And we have to say, most of his thoughts fully resonate with ours, so we happily share it with you.
We all know the situation when the global model is made e.g. in Autodesk Advance Steel and you need to send your exported steel joint to your colleague – detailer. But what if he or she does not have an IDEA StatiCa license installed on his/her computer?
Here at IDEA StatiCa, we are always trying to verify our software against other established methods. That is why our Technical Manager at IDEA StatiCa UK, Costis Hatzopoulos, took a look into a truss joint design with open sections based on the article on the same topic published in New Steel Construction magazine in January 2020 by David Brown, Associate Director at the SCI.
Do you think IDEA StatiCa Connection is used only for complex joints in large projects? Well, see how it helps also with easy, yet special daily basis tasks in small design offices.
Designing steel-to-concrete connections is a key, safety-critical task on many construction projects. White Paper “Designing Steel-to-concrete Connections” published by the New Civil Engineer magazine looks at the creation of PROFIS Engineering software from Hilti, which has been developed to address these issues.
Fire resistance of reinforced and prestressed concrete structures is one of the important parameters that an engineer has to check when designing a building structure. From the last version of IDEA StatiCa, structural engineers are able to check concrete structures for fire resistance in the application RCS, too.
