Highlights in Steel

Create your company set

The IDEA StatiCa Connection Browser enables you to build your library of connections, including the easy ones, and use them in the future again.

Save your time, and don't use Excel spreadsheets for connection design anymore! IDEA StatiCa becomes the solution for ALL steel connections, no matter the complexity.

Make your teamwork more effective and share your connections with anybody using the same IDEA StatiCa license anywhere in the world!

BIM links improvements

BIM links functionality has been extended:

  • New BIM links for RAM Structural System and Tekla Structural Designer are available now.
  • Merge close joints related to the same connection arrangement. 
  • Eccentrically connected bracing members are no more a problem for the connection design export in Checkbot.
  • Export particular connections into individual or one multi-connection IDEA Connection IDEA file.

Member passing through a tube & lateral-torsional restraint

We have added a new cutting method “Surface – all around,” which enables cutting of the proper opening and welding of the passing member at the same time.

The lateral-torsional restraint in IDEA StatiCa Connection and Member is available now and helps to avoid unwanted torsional deformation and stress of eccentrically loaded members.

Compression contact design

IDEA StatiCa 22.0 also introduces a new structural element

Now you can improve the code-checking of constructions using a compression contact between any kind of base plate and a concrete block without using anchors.

Highlights in Concrete

Auto calculation of self-weight & detailed analysis results

In IDEA StatiCa Detail, the self-weight is now automatically considered by the software.

Explore the structure and get more detailed stress results in IDEA StatiCa Detail. 

With a simple right-click, users can display the stress chart and export it to e. g. CSV or DXF file.

UI enhancements in IDEA StatiCa Member

With an updated user interface, you can now:

  • Edit the reinforcement properties directly in the property grid
  • Display nodes and members in the scene when defining a new project
  • Draw overall results for Linear analysis, MNA, and GMNA analysis
  • Visualize the reactions in the 3D scene according to the selected LC/Combination
