Статья доступна на других языках:
In order to make IDEA StatiCa Connection and IDEA StatiCa Member usable in all parts of the world, we have implemented some of the most widely used national codes. All you need to do is select the corresponding standard and get to work.

For now, IDEA StatiCa Steel users can choose from 8 international or national codes and standards.

  • AISC - American Code of Standard Practice for Steel Buildings and Bridges
  • EN - Eurocode - used in the majority of European countries (without national annexes)
  • CISC - Canadian Code of Standard Practice for Structural Steel
  • AS - Australian Standards and Codes of Practice
  • SP - Russian National Standards 
  • GB - Chinese National Standards 
  • HKG - Hong Kong Code of Practice for the Structural Use of Steel
  • IS - Indian Standards

News and updates for codes

We're constantly working on keeping the software updated based on the latest versions of codes and standards. Read the following paragraphs and find out what has been improved.

Hong Kong Code (HKG)

The Hong Kong steel design code (HK) for steel-to-steel connections and joints is now available alongside seven other design standards. Component bolts, preloaded bolts, and welds are checked according to HK CoP:2011 and CoP:2013, including detailing. Detailing check for bolts and concrete block resistance check has been implemented too.

Hong Kong standard

This feature is available for the Expert and Enhanced version of IDEA StatiCa Steel product.

Indian design code (IS)

The Indian steel design code (IS) for steel-to-steel joints is now available alongside seven other design standards. Components bolts, preloaded bolts, welds, and concrete in compression are checked according to IS 800:2007 and IS 456:2000, including detailing.

Steel grades, bolt grades, and typical steel cross-sections are listed in the library.

Специфика проверки сварных швов по Еврокоду (EN) и нормам Индии (IS)

Чтобы результаты расчётов были безопасными и соответствовали нормам проектирования, значения прочности, указанные в проверке сварных швов, для EN и IS теперь учитывают прочность соединяемых деталей и прочность самого материала сварки.

Прочность сварных швов fu (EN, IS) принимается как минимальное из следующих значений:

  • fu соединяемой пластины 1,
  • fu соединяемой пластины 2,
  • fu материала сварного шва соответствующей монтажной операции.


В других нормах проектирования (СП, AISC, CSA, AS, GB, HKG) прочность зависит от марки электрода.


Обновления относятся и к версии Expert, и к версии Enhanced.
