IDEA StatiCa 21.1 is the second release of the year but it brings even more. What did we try to achieve with this version? Push our BIM workflows to the next level, allow engineers to design more in reinforced and prestressed concrete, and implement plenty of features for connection design.

News for BIM

Reliable BIM workflows are key for effective project work. That is why we invested in the massive upgrade of the "Code-check manager" application. And we also gave it a better name – the Checkbot. This new slick-looking application is the new hub of IDEA StatiCa workflows with 3rd party software. And a big booster of the productivity for engineers working with our BIM links.

IDEA StatiCa Checkbot gives you:

  • Complete control over tens and hundreds of imported connections and members
  • A clear list of all imported items including status checked/not-checked
  • 3D visualization of imported members and loads
  • Conversion table for materials & CSS
  • Load combinations management

News for Concrete and Prestressing

IDEA StatiCa Detail expands to the prestressed concrete as well. Engineers can now understand, design, and code-check discontinuities in PC members and details. This dramatically decreases the time needed to design prestressed beams, diaphragms, etc.

IDEA StatiCa Member deals with slender reinforced concrete columns sensitive to imperfections. Equipped with a new GMNIA solver in version 21.1, it provides a reliable tool for engineers who needs to deliver clear and comprehensive design reports of slender columns.

IDEA StatiCa for Concrete now provides:

  • GMNIA solution for slender columns in IDEA StatiCa Member
  • Design and check of prestressing in IDEA StatiCa Detail
  • Speeding up the solver of IDEA StatiCa for the design of concrete discontinuities by up to 30%
  • Enhanced crack width check of cross-sections with a large concrete cover

News for Steel

Connection Browser is here! This unique tool in IDEA StatiCa Connection will help you find a suitable design solution from a library of predefined designs and apply them right away. The Connection Browser will work with three databases of steel connections - a general IDEA StatiCa set and the private set of a single user; The company set to share your designs with your colleagues will follow.

IDEA StatiCa for Steel now provides:

  • New Connection Browser
  • Custom number of buckling modes – you can now set up to 30 buckling modes
  • European steels according to product sheets – specifically for the UK market
  • Improved code-check of welds - as per Eurocode and Indian standard
  • 3D visualization of deformations in IDEA StatiCa Member
  • Use global/local coordinates in supports settings
