Safe design of all steel members
Solve the critical steel member
Connections are not the only pain-point when it comes to steel projects. Stability and buckling calculations are critical for safety but tools for the proper analysis are lacking. Use IDEA StatiCa Member to design and code-check the critical frame of your project (beams, columns, diagonals, etc.). Complete analysis with boundary conditions keeps you on the safe side.
No more estimates of buckling lengths
Uncompromising analysis of members modeled by 2D shells with real connections, stiffeners, openings. Your projects deserve real simulation of structural behavior, including strut stability, buckling, torsion, and deplanation. Design any steel member with confidence!
Analyze and design any steel member
MASTER STEEL MEMBER DESIGN WITH OUR FREE CAMPUS
Learn everything you need to know about critical steel member design. With our free self-guided Campus course, you can study at your own speed, test your knowledge with continuous quizzes and learn how to design code-compliant critical frames for your projects (beams, columns, diagonals, etc.) safely. You can also enhance your professional status with paid certification.
Complex bridge segment?
Everyone can do a structural design of a simple beam. But it gets more complicated in real-life projects. Non-standard topologies should not be a boundary of your projects. Watch how to design a complex bridge segment in 10 minutes - from geometry to loading and report that sells your work.
Leverage your FEA model
IDEA StatiCa Member is a part of your workflow. Perform global analysis in your FEA software and export the critical member to IDEA StatiCa using a built-in plugin. You can also combine it with connections exported from the analysis program to avoid duplicate work. Be save and save time!
