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