Can you trust the CSFM?

CSFM (Compatible stress field method) is a method for the design and code-check of concrete details, regions of discontinuities, and walls. It is also the method implemented in the application IDEA StatiCa Detail.

The answer to the above-mentioned question is yes. Validation and verification of the CSFM solution is an essential part of the process of IDEA StatiCa software development. There has been extensive research done in this field, which is available on the IDEA StatiCa webpage and in the book Compatible Stress Field Design of Structural Concrete by prof. Kaufmann.
