No more struggle with steel connection design

Design all your structural steel connections, no matter the geometry, in minutes

Connection design simplified

IDEA StatiCa is an industry-leading EN and AISC steel connection design software. You get clear pass/fail checks as per code, in minutes. IDEA StatiCa will save up to 80% of your connection design time because of:  

  • A huge database of pre-designed 2D/3D connections, footings, CHS and HSS connections, steel-to-timber, and other connections
  • Quick modeling and design of any bolted and welded connections
  • Thorough code-checks including buckling, stiffness analysis, design resistance, and seismic  
  • Fully customizable reports with equations and pictures that sell

ANY GEOMETRY AND LOADING

Design any type of steel connection from scratch or import it from your analysis or detailing software. Apply simplified or complex loading. Visualize the connection behavior. Generate connection sketches and bill of material in seconds. IDEA StatiCa gets your connection design done for every configuration of steel connections you need: 

  • Moment connections in steel structures, shear and axial connections, including seismic
  • Beam to beam, beam to column, column to column, or column to base plate connections
Connection design from A to Z

The Marshall Building

Bourne Group has been one of the first TOP10 UK Steel contractors to implement IDEA StatiCa back in 2016, and since then they have been using successfully in many high profile projects. One of the latest is The Marshall Building, an iconic structure at the London School of Economics.

Glass roof topping

The former Diamant fair (De Diamantbeurs) in Amsterdam, from now on Capital C, has been restored to its old glory after a radical renovation. This national monument has not only been returned to its original shape, but it has now also a new special roof topping made from glass and steel. A design by well-known architectural office ZJA Zwarts & Jansma Architects, structural design by Octatube.

Burgers’ Zoo Mangrove, Arnhem, The Netherlands

Burgers' Zoo Mangrove is a 3000 m2 eco-display with a freshwater basin and offers, among other things, animal species such as manatees and butterflies via a saltwater mud plain with ebb and flow, a natural habitat. The surprising landscape extends under a dome-shaped structure, the highest point of which is 16 m above the ground.

250+ Connections in 3 clicks

Your steel connection design software should not limit the number of beams, bolts, welds, plates, and other steel connection details. Do the most common steel connections in seconds and continue editing the connection right in the 3D scene. Super-speed your design by:

  • Hundreds of default connection types, 10.000+ design configurations  
  • Personalized and company templates
  • Unique Pre-design feature that automatically models connections for you
Watch how to design steel connection in a few seconds

You do not have to be a FEA expert

You model the connection as you do in a CAD application. IDEA StatiCa puts the analytical model together, in the background, taking into account all the forces and interactions. You get precise checks, results of stress/strain, stiffness, and buckling analysis. It also checks bolts, welds, and concrete block. This is the software for steel connection design that works for you.

What do our customers say about us?

Az IDEA StatiCa-t már 6-10 különböző projektnél használtuk. A Crabapple Market nevű projekt hat épület volt, amelyek egy komplexum részét képezték. Egy másik vállalatnál volt a másik nyolc épület a komplexumban, és az RFI kezdeti fordulója és az EOR észrevételei után úgy döntöttek, hogy minket alkalmaznak bármilyen felülvizsgálaton és változtatáson, mivel számítási csomagunk (IDEA StatiCa) felülmúlta a másik vállalatot.

Thanks to IDEA StatiCa Connection, we have done in our project each steel connection is less than 1 day what would have taken more than a week with the old processes. Today, I only use IDEA StatiCa with some side manual verifications.

IDEA StatiCa allows us to design a much wider range of connections, in less time, as well as look into the stiffness behaviour of connections to see how this interacts with the global structural analysis.

IDEA StatiCa Connection is a very helpful package for the modeling of a wide range of joints in steel structures. Modeling and interpretation of the results requires an understanding of the forces within a node and is equal to the complexity of the connection.

We have become early adopters of IDEA StatiCa because its advanced design and check process is both powerful and quick enough to be a useful tool in our everyday work as structural engineers for fabricators.

Once you have used the software for a while, it becomes quite intuitive and therefore much easier to use. It is very powerful in terms of the complexity of connections that it can cope with.

Implementing the IDEA software into our company has been a real turning point for us. It allows us to create connections that are lightweight, cost-effective and structurally efficient all the while giving us the flexibility to design a connection to any imaginable configuration whilst still giving us the confidence that the connections are designed in accordance with the relevant design standards.

Az IDEA StatiCa általános filozófiája és gyakorlata segített nekünk abban, hogy gyorsan kidolgozzunk összetett kapcsolatokat, amelyeket általában kézzel terveztünk volna meg. Az IDEA StatiCa Connection alkalmazásban ezek a kapcsolatok megoldhatóvá váltak. A munkafolyamat a geometriától függetlenül ugyan az. Egy másik fontos dolog az volt, hogy az ésszerű csatlakozási részletek csökkentették a gyártási költségeket, és a rácsok összeszerelése viszonylag egyszerű volt.
