With IDEA Connection, we have the ability to demonstrate both simple and complex steel work connections using finite element methods. After a short training period, the entry of the connection geometries and loads - in contrast to most general finite element programs - succeeds surprisingly fast, all inputs are displayed directly in a 3D construction view of the connection. After calculating the connection, in addition to stresses, strains and utilization, intermediate values (forces in the single screws, welds and the rotational rigidity according to DIN EN 1993-1-8, ...) can be determined, so that a reference to the component model of the Eurocode is given.
