The biggest development in structural engineering since many years!

Welcome to IDEA StatiCa

The most powerful software in the world for the analysis & design of Steel Connections

Special FEM solver
Local Buckling analysis
Stiffness classification
Overall EC3/AISC checks

We started in 2013 with a question: “Can we analyze steel joints in a more precise and general way?”

We know the answer today: “YES, we can!”


IDEA StatiCa Connection combines in a unique way the simplicity of a modern user interface, with a sophisticated background, allowing even the non-experienced user to become quickly familiar with the software and be productive very quickly.


IDEA StatiCa Connection offers some amazing tools, that helps you model and analyze easily even the most complex connections, by combining  standard manufacturing operations and FEM analysis. All you have to do is to create the connection as it is in reality!


IDEA StatiCa Connection offers the first real breakthrough technology in structural engineering since many years! The new CBFEM method that is based on, combines the use of Finite elements Analysis with standard EC3/AISC checks, through amazing ease of use!

Cloud connection design

CBFEM – the most advanced technology for the design of Steel Connections goes to the cloud!

Use our FREE new cloud application based on IDEA StatiCa and CBFEM, to calculate hundreds of connections, in seconds, online.

Simply open your web browser, choose the type of connection, define the topology in a few-clicks, edit the properties and get a complete EC/AISC report with simple pass/fail status for all the individual elements and any necessary data.


Watch this webinar that describes all the basic things you need to know about IDEA Connection: the basic principles on which is based, the main features and advantages and a live demonstration of a connection modeled and designed from scratch.

Version 7.1 is released!

Version 7.1 brings again more innovations to IDEA StatiCa! We were focused mainly to the simplification of the program from the user point of view, but also more advanced methods in modeling and check connection parts – welds and bolts. Some of the new features:

  • Preloaded bolts
  • Plastic non-linear behavior for welds
  • DXF import for stiffening plates
  • Interaction of shear and tension forces in bolts
  • “Traffic lights” visualization of checks
  • Seismic details – notches & “dog bones”
  • New table for bolt checks
  • New cross-section types
  • Rotational capacity of connections

Don’t take our word for it – try it yourself!
