Selected load cases from SCIA Engineer to IDEA StatiCa via XML

Is it possible to code-check critical member of a continuous composite bridge in IDEA StatiCa Beam including temperature and moving load effects? 

Yes, it is. If you have a global model of a bridge in SCIA Engineer, it is very easy and effective to use user-defined forces via XML import of selected load cases calculated in SCIA Engineer. The video shows how to create an XML document and select the critical load cases in SCIA Engineer.  Then the import of the XML file is demonstrated in the IDEA StatiCa Beam application.
