# Is there a way to combine CSFM in Detail with the well-known strut and tie method?

$$Many engineers are wondering, how could they verify whether the novel CSFM approach of IDEA StatiCa Detail is safe and reliable, just as the old strut and tie method. Combining the two can reassure that the design was done correctly, and bring the peace of mind, that the tool they are starting to use is reliable.Check out our webinar about a project that combined the two methods, so the engineer verified the solution on his own!$$
