“The presented figure corresponds to an investigation carried out at the University of Chile, by Dr. Ricardo Herrera, in which I had the opportunity to participate, oriented to the qualification of a connection to moment, using numerical and experimental study, reaching a favorable performance as established in AISC-341.

From that research, I decided to verify using a commercial software called IDEA Statica, finding the possibility to analyze and design this connection.

The results are impressive … stresses, plastic deformations, stability and reproduction of failure modes such as those obtained in an experimental study. This is summarized in reliability …

Up to here phenomenal … but being able to do it in less than 3 minutes fulfilling AISC-2016 Standards and interoperability with TEKLA make it an ideal tool.”
