Design and code-check all your steel connections and members. Any geometry and loading. Safely, in minutes.

Compatible with other software

Be safe, save time, optimize

IDEA StatiCa is software for steel connection design for all types of welded and bolted structural steel connections and base plates. It fastens your connection design process by:  

  • The intuitive design of simple, moderate, and complex steel connections
  • Pass/fail results for 2D/3D, CHS/HSS steel connection as per AISC, EN etc.
  • 250 ready-made templates, 10,000+ connection configurations
  • Ability to apply any loading for axial, shear and moment connections 
  • The complete report including stiffness, seismicity, and buckling
How to cut down your connection design time by up to 80%?

IDEA StatiCa was the first one to combine the traditional Component method (i.e equations) with FEM analysis. Thoroughly tested with universities, IDEA StatiCa is the industry-leading EN and AISC steel connection design software. Applicability? Design of welded connections, bolted connections, moment connections, welded connections, and other types of steel connections.

How much will you save on steel connections?

Connection design is not pain just for you. We have collected feedback from over 1000 structural engineers and created a calculator that can reasonably estimate how your connection design process can change when you get onboard with IDEA StatiCa. Spend 3 minutes on it, they will be worth it!
