Supports the BS annex
For the so-called discontinuity regions, current codes offer limited support. Our solution adopts the recent developments in this area , hand-in-hand with leading researchers, to allow the full calculation of these areas. Common cases of such pages are openings, walls with openings, bridge diaphragms, frame joints, hangers and more…
IDEA StatiCa can help you model and check critical sections and members of any complexity.
IDEA StatiCa can model any section at any construction stage including reinforcement and tendons. Discontinuities are supported and can possibly be mixed. Templates of common cases including geometry and reinforcement can model demanding structure parts fast and accurate!
IDEA StatiCa models and checks both reinforcement and tendons. Post-tension and pre-tension can be mixed and checked in a single project, in any construction stage. Moreover, any type of discontinuity can be included. Wizards can get you started in a matter of minutes!
IDEA StatiCa can help you reduce fabrication costs drastically, as it allows your team to reduce the number of over-designed members, respond fast when changes happen, secure the transportation & erection process, and communicate the designs and their modifications transparently.
Our section checks have been validated thoroughly by numerous comparison calculations. Together with university ETH in Zurich, we have also created and tested a method called Compatible Stress Field Method (CSFM) for the design of discontinuities.
