Steel connection design – reinvented

We are changing the way how to calculate connections and joints in steel structures.

IDEA StatiCa introduces a novel way to design and check all steel connections and joints. With it, engineers can break the limits of standard connection design tools to save time and optimize the material usage. Clear pass/fail checks according to the EC/AISC/CISC code are available in minutes, as well as complete output reports.

Any topology

No limits in how many connections there are in the joint, what is their type and how they are put together. Shape is defined by project requirements, not by software capabilities.

Any loading

All forces are analyzed. The overall check of the joint takes into account interactions between all the beams and connections. Engineers stays on the safe side all the time.

In minutes

The whole design and check process is kept short enough to be a part of everyday work of structural engineers and fabricators all around the world.

Concrete detail design – reinvented

IDEA StatiCa introduces a novel way to design and check concrete details and walls. With it, engineers can break the limits of standard design tools to save time and optimize the material usage. Clear pass/fail checks according to the code are available in minutes, as well as complete output reports.

IDEA StatiCa is suitable for an extensive range of applications in three main fields of concrete and prestressed concrete market:

  • Bridges of medium and small spans
  • Prefabricated concrete structures
  • Cast-in-place buildings

Any topology

No limits in type or shape of detail. Every type can be easily geometrically defined, reinforced and calculated as your project demands.

Any loading

The overall check of the detail takes into account interactions of internal forces and loads in a plane. Engineers stay on the safe side all the time.

In minutes

The whole design and check process is kept short enough to be a part of everyday work of structural engineers and fabricators all around the world.
