About IDEA StatiCa

We develop software for structural engineers and detailers. Our development team researches, tests, and applies new methods of analyzing the behaviour of structures and their members. Based on this, we created IDEA StatiCa – software that enables engineers to work faster, evaluate requirements of the national code thoroughly, and use the optimal amount of material. For us, creating software is a way to contribute to making every new construction around the world safer and cheaper.

Gusset plate – what’s the big deal?

They are with us for centuries and if you’re not a structural engineer, you will never notice them. And it’s OK, they should be made like this – inconspicuous, modest but unshakably safe. When you need to create a gusset

Modern construction vs openings in beams

In modern building construction, transverse openings in reinforced concrete beams are often provided for the passage of utility ducts and pipes. These ducts are necessary in order to accommodate essential services such as water supply, electricity, telephone, and computer network.

Condensed superelements – invisible but essential

What made the most realistic connection model behave even more realistically? Until version 21 was released, there were not many ways to model the steel member connections more realistically than using the IDEA StatiCa application. But still, there were situations

Are truss models outdated in the 21st century?

IDEA StatiCa cooperates with professor Walter Kaufmann and his team at ETH Zurich on verification and validation of its concrete applications since 2016. In January 2021, professor Kaufmann published on the ETH website a blog post related to truss models.
