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.

CEPS Czech Towers: IDEA StatiCa Ensures Integrity

CEPS PLC was aided by IDEA StatiCa Connection to create a new series of electricity tower masts in the Czech Republic. Thousands of them will be built with optimal use of steel. The article will try to demonstrate how IDEA StatiCa was utilised in the development of electricity tower masts in the Czech Republic.  

The electricity transmission system in the Czech Republic is operated by the company CEPS, specifically CEPS invest. It builds the infrastructure and balances the supply of electricity with demand on a minute-by-minute basis. It develops the whole network through new projects and also cooperates with other transmission system operators throughout Europe and contributes to the development of the wider electricity market. Their engineering unit started working on a new series of electricity tower masts. Their initial design was put on paper and engineers started to look into joint topologies – their safety and compliance with construction code.

It soon became clear that such an effective design requires a specific joint topology. IDEA StatiCa Connection was able to solve most of them right away. The rest was examined by IDEA development team and served as an inspiration for further development. Changes were implemented in weeks and IDEA StatiCa Connection was able to solve 100% of the joints that was needed to continue with its projects. These tower masts will be deployed across the whole Czech Republic in 2016 and following years.

Some of the joints calculated in IDEA StatiCa Connection:
