Connection Wednesdays – February 6th, 2019

Connection Wednesdays – Way too complex joint?

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), followed by another one at 1:00 PM EST (New York time). Register below and join the session that fits your day.

Join our experienced Product Engineers and calculate yesterday’s estimates!

Join the Webinar and learn about:

  • How to quickly design and check steel connections
  • Avoiding modeling mistakes
  • Different approaches to using operations
  • BIM workflows with CAE/CAD programs
  • Minimizing the risks of structural defects
  • Useful HelDesk tips and tricks
  • Projects done within IDEA StatiCa community
  • Using new modeling features

“Currently, thanks to the possibility of IDEA StatiCa Connection analysis and code-check, it is possible to quickly obtain high quality and reliable solutions together with significant material savings”, says mgr inż. Maciej Kotecki, CEO in the design office KMS located in Poland.

And he adds, “The previously used much simplified analytical approach allowed only separate extreme load schemes manually composed for each member and connection part, forcing our engineers to overkill the joint as well as leaving uncertainties of the solution and overall structure behavior, even after a time-consuming and laborious job.”

For example, IDEA StatiCa Connection helped in the enlargement project of Castorama building in Gorzów Wielkopolski with additional store and warehouse (49.52m x 66.30m). This project required the application of FEM to consider all interactions of load effects together with extremely complex topology. See more about KMS studio at http://kms-studio.eu/
