Steel webinar – May 29th, 2019

Connection Wednesdays – Battersea Power Station (London)

Are you a trial user or an IDEA StatiCa expert? Do you want to sharpen your skills? Then join our Wednesdays’ regular webinars, and find out more about this breakthrough CBFEM technology that has changed forever the way we analyze and design steel connections!

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.

On Wednesdays, we run two same sessions: the first at 11:00 CEST (Prague time, UTC+2), followed by another one at 12:00 PM EDT (New York time, UTC-4). Register below and join the session that fits your day.

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”
AED – Complex base plate with rebars passing through
IDEA StatiCa Connection helped in the redevelopment of Battersea Power Station in London, by code-checking complex joints such as this footing from the high-level temporary roadway.
