Steel connection design – reinvented! IDEA StatiCa broke the limit of standard approach to connection design. We provide clear pass/fail checks according to code for all connections, in minutes. The solution is based on a unique CBFEM method which combines finite elements with the component method.
IDEA StatiCa is an engineering software dedicated to structural design and code-check of joints, cross sections, beams and other details. We enable structural engineers and fabricators to work faster, evaluate requirements of the national code thoroughly and use optimal amount of material.
Steel frame structures are commonly analyzed three dimensionally by 1D elements. Connection of elements to joints is assumed to be perfectly rigid, nominally pinned or semi-rigid. The new CBFEM method allows to properly model the connection. The bending/deformation stiffness, resistance and deformation capacity of connections of individual members is evaluated.
