A successful steel connection design needs correct transfer of forces. IDEA StatiCa has many options to realistically model your connection so you get real-world results. This applies to loads as well.

Join us in this webinar to learn all about loading your steel connection models in IDEA StatiCa. During the one-hour session, you will learn different options to load your models in IDEA StatiCa:

How IDEA StatiCa internally applies loads to the model and why the position of the load matters for the load path. 

The Loads in equilibrium option will be explained as to what cases to use it and what circumstances don’t.

Did you know you can design a steel connection depending on the beam moment/shear capacity? Yes, it is possible, and IDEA has a straightforward way.

Finally, learn the process of importing load combinations from other applications intuitively.
