Steel webinar – October 2nd, 2019

Connection Wednesdays – Common rookie mistakes on steel joints

In this webinar we will look into some of the common rookie mistakes in IDEA StatiCa Connection, based on a real example we have received through our support channel. We will make the necessary adjustments to the joint according to the customer requirements and discuss several aspects of the model, but also basic principles of using IDEA Statica. On top, some advanced modeling techniques will be presented.
Are you a trial user or an IDEA StatiCa expert? Do you want to sharpen your skills? Then join our Wednesdays’ regular webinars, and find out more about this breakthrough CBFEM technology that has changed forever the way we analyze and design steel connections!
