The structural engineer usually solves the task to design the connection/joint to transfer the known design load, but it is also useful to know how far the design from the limit state is, i.e., how big the reserve in the design is and how safe it is.

How can this be accomplished in IDEA StatiCa? The user inputs the design load like in a standard design. The software automatically proportionally increases all load components until one of the checks does not satisfy. This can be done simply by the type of analysis – Joint design resistance . The user gets the ratio of maximal load to the design load. Also, a simple diagram is provided.
