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!

During the webinar, you will see the whole workflow of modeling, loading, and code-check of one interesting steel joint. In addition, we go through “HelpDesk highlights” – vibrant topic from our support desk and our customer’s suggestions. At the end of each webinar, there will be a Q&A section to discuss any questions.

On Wednesdays, we run two same sessions: the first at 11:00 CET (Prague time, UTC+1), followed by another one at 12:00 PM EST (New York time, UTC-5). Register below and join the session that fits your day.

10 Fenchurch Avenue is a new mixed-use office development located in the heart of London’s insurance district. Designed by Eric Parry Architects, the development comprises a seventeen storey building that incorporates a rooftop garden; a unique, open-air area for the public and tenants alike that offers panoramic views of London from within the Square Mile, and across the City to the Tower of London and beyond.
This project is London’s first publicly accessible roof garden in the ‘true sense’, towering 65 meters above street level. ARUP has provided structural engineering, geotechnical engineering and security services for the new development and acted as a contract administrator for the demolition of the six buildings that previously occupied the site.
Among other parts of the structure, ARUP used IDEA StatiCa for the design of the galvanized steel pergola base plates, which will be presented in this webinar.

IDEA StatiCa Connection helped in the development of one of London’s biggest building projects – 10 Fenchurch Avenue – and especially in the design of the roof garden pergola complex base plates.

HelpDesk highlight – Comparison with simple design software

One of the most common questions from customers: “What are the important things to know when comparing results with guides / component method software which use the traditional design methods?”
