Are you a structural engineer focusing on the prestressed girders and want to know how to design these members safely in IDEA StatiCa? Do you want to find out how the BIM link between IDEA StatiCa Beam and Detail app works? If your answer is yes, our forthcoming webinar is the right one for you.

We will show you how to design, support, and load a model in the IDEA StatiCa Beam application for the following export to the Detail application. We will introduce some processing in the Detail app for the correct behavior of the model after export. Then we will follow with an explanation of the import of combinations created in the previous step in the Beam app.

Example 1 – pre-tensioned saddle beam

Pre-tensioned saddle beam subjected to uniform load and concentrated loads, all exported from IDEA StatiCa Beam to IDEA StatiCa Detail.

Example 2 – compression stress distribution in concrete

Stress results based on non-linear analysis (CSFM) of a pre-tensioned saddle beam.

On Wednesday, August 19, 2020, 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.
