Welcome to IDEA StatiCa

Engineering software dedicated to structural design and code-check of joints, cross sections, beams and other details.

Steel Connections

A novel way to design and check according to the EC/AISC/CISC, steel connections of ANY geometry and loading, in minutes.

Concrete D-regions

Reinforcement and code-check of all types of concrete walls, beams, and details according to the code, in minutes.

IDEA StatiCa has brought a revolution to the engineering world by being the first – and only – software in the world to implement the new CBFEM method – based on finite elements analysis – which allows the code-checking of steel connections of ANY geometry and loading. The software performs a non-linear plastic analysis for all the elements in the joint – plates, bolts and welds, and supports Prestressed bolts, anchoring, and special contact elements between the plates.

Version 9 is released!!

After a year of hard work, we are proud to show the next step in design and code-check of steel connections. Since the first release of IDEA StatiCa Connection in May 2014, we have collected a tremendous amount of feedback how to simplify the application. Based on this, we developed a brand new graphical user interface (GUI) with a lot of new features which will help you speed up the design and code-check of the steel connections, especially the simple ones.
The second biggest topic of customer feedback has been the BIM links, so we developed a powerful tool for management of the exported connections from CAD and FEA applications – we can now synchronize connection models in IDEA StatiCa and other applications. On top of it, there are several new features such as direct report export, new models for anchoring or stub manufacturing operation.

ARUP’s testimonial

During the last Autodesk University in Las Vegas, IDEA StatiCa team together with ARUP’s Associate director, Mr. Graham Aldwinckle, presented a class about Steel connection design, and particularly about IDEA StatiCa and the workflow with Autodesk’s Advanced Steel.

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.

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