Another example of how IDEA StatiCa can help you to go beyond the code limitations, and design connections that incorporate elements and characteristics such as web openings, eccentricities, etc, that would otherwise require 'hand' calculations....

Eccentric connections are quite challenging. The designer must account for them in his calculations and make assumptions for their influence on each component (bolts, welds and plates). Moreover, they require connecting plates and members with unorthodox geometries that bring existing calculation methods to their limit....

Load on a curve imported from DXF reference can save you a lot of time during the input of loads for concrete structures. This new functionality can help a lot when defining shear stress flow in sections capable of transferring the torsion effects, a load...

One of the biggest requests we’ve had from our customers over the last year, was the ability to export a joint from TEKLA Structures, without the need of IDEA StatiCa being installed in the same computer. In IDEA StatiCa 10.1 we made it happen! And...

Among other unique advantages, IDEA StatiCa provided a complete solution to a problem that existed for many years: connections that incorporate PFC sections (Parallel Flange Channels – or UPN in Eurocodes) . Although competing software seem to support PFCs for very simple cases like fin...

Web openings can be a real pain for connection design, as current design codes assume the beam to be solid at the end, in order to carry out the design. IDEA StatiCa, with its general approach, provides a complete and very accurate solution, that takes...

How does a beam web opening can influence the rotational stiffness of the connection and the code checks? Before IDEA StatiCa that was a really tough question to answer for anyone, and only with the use of sophisticated non-linear analysis software – and lot’s of...

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...
