Who is behind IDEA StatiCa?
IDEA StatiCa develops software for structural engineers. That is a long journey. Firstly it means we research, test, and apply new methods of analyzing the behavior of structures. Secondly, we shape all that technology into simple engineering applications which have to be reliable, fast, and accurate. For us, creating software is a way to contribute to making every new structure around the world safer and cheaper.
