- Minimizing the risks of structural defects
Applied Engineering Design (AED), a pioneering Scottish engineering design specialist with offices in Edinburgh and Bath, has used IDEA StatiCa in Battersea Power Station – one of the biggest regeneration projects in Europe and an iconic landmark on London’s riverbank. AED has been tasked with creating a high-level temporary roadway at the site which is capable of carrying heavy construction traffic. Once its use as a site connection is finished, the structural beams and columns will be encased in concrete, and flats will be built on top of the deck.

Tim Hetherington, Director of AED, said:
“It is a particularly complex commission and we have become early adopters of IDEA StatiCa because its advanced design and check process is both powerful and quick enough to be a useful tool in our everyday work as structural engineers for fabricators. I had become aware of the limitations of commonplace software and I had been looking for an alternative”.
In the first part of the webinar, we focused on design and code-check of a complex steel joint for the footing of the high-level temporary roadway.
In the second part, we showcased one of our HelpDesk Highlights – multiple shear planes in bolted plates.
