Features

Although tubular structures are widely used in structures nowadays, their joints are often not covered by design codes and guides, especially when it comes to multiplanar joints. Additionally to standard tubular joints, the latest years a novel joint configuration called bird-beak was proposed - since researchers...

For years, we have been researching new ways how to reinforce and code-check concrete details of all topologies and loading. In 2016, we partnered up with one of the top technical university worldwide – ETH Zurich – to create IDEA StatiCa Detail, a revolutionary tool for...

In order to obtain realistic results in IDEA StatiCa Detail, tension stiffening is accounted using the Tension Chord Model, which is also used for calculating the crack widths (using effective concrete areas compatible with code requirements). The figure below summarises the basic assumptions, including the...
